Question about 1996 Chevrolet C1500
Ok my turn signals stopped work, i checked the combination relay behind the e-break peddle but its not that one, and i can seem to find the second turn signal relay which i have been told is along the steering column. my hazard lights flash both outside and in side the car but my turn signals wont. any suggestions?
Is it just the inside lights on the dash not working. it may just be the bulb/s they can both go at the same time. also the second relay is on top of the steering column a bit of a pain to get to. think you can get to it with the dash out..

When you said that you checked the brake switch, did you check it live? Meaning verified live power to the switch, press switch, and then power came out the other terminal?
If so, also verify zero power on brake press, at the offending brake light bulb terminal. You must verify the test light each time you move it...leave running lights on...
After verifying that there is no power coming, after the brake is pressed, note the wire color and find it where it comes to the steering column and test there... This would eliminate wires and connections between front and the rear of the vehicle, unlikely, but needs to be tested.
After verifying no power at that terminal, then yes the t/s switch is certainly suspece. This may be the time to get a mechanic to verify and replace the switch, there are locks, tilt mechanisms, air bags, column bearings, etc involved. Failures risk loss of vehicle control (locking or binding for example.)..
Hope this gets you going in the right direction.

Testimonial: "Thank You. I tried those things and it seemed to be the Emergency Flasher switch in the multi function switch."

Turn on the Durango and check each of the four turn signals
to make sure that the bulbs are not burned out. If you find one that has gone
out, replace the bulb and retest the turn signals. When a bulb goes bad on this
circuit, the resulting operation can mimic a bad flasher or one that is
Locate the combination turn signal flasher and relay. It is
on the left end of the driver's dash. Open the access door and view the
collection of relays and fuses. At the left side of the mounting block is a
larger flasher and relay. This is the combination turn signal flasher and
the relay by placing you finger on the relay housing and activating the turn
signal. If you have found the right one, you should feel a clicking as the turn
signal blinks. Remove the relay, replace with the new relay and close the
Start the Durango and activate the turn signals to check that they each work. The light should turn on and should blink. Also, check the hazard lights to make sure they work.
