I changed the entire steering column in my 92 s-10 and now have now brake lights at all no power going to the brake light switch itself and no left blinker but the right side works and turn the flashers on...

Check the brake light fuse. Check that one of the brake light fuse terminals has power at all times. Power for the brake lights goes from the fuse panel to the brake light switch, before the brake light wire goes into the steering column.

Brake light fuse keeps blowing on 98 Town and Country

No recall situation as far as I can tell (get 2nd, 3rd opinion).

Try this first. Instead of using the standard amp fuse, raise it up by 10 amps. So if it uses a 20 amp, use a 30 amp fuse and see if it still blows. If so, it sounds like you have a loose wire, or a ground issue. Something is shorting them out.

Also, consider replacing the switch under the brake pedal that actuates the brake lights to begin with. This could have been the problem from the start.

And a Tip: NEVER pay someone that much just to "look" at anything this small.

This is an easy fix, we just need to find the source of the problem, and for something like this, there aren't many places the problem could be.

Rest assured, we'll get it.

Please do not hesitate to contact me further.
