Re: Hi when I brake my right indicator comes on and I...
The chance is good that it is a earthing/negative wire not making proper contact. Attach a wire on the outside of the metal casing of the indicator bulb and then connect it to the nearest possible point on the body of the vehicle. Ensure that both attachment points make proper contact by for example soldering it. The problem should disepear .

have you checked fuses/relays, if they are ok check at the top of peddle under dash to make sure the brake light switch hasn't come loose or needs adjusting. hope this helps and if you need any more assistance just ask

Is your rear turn signal bolb the same one used for brakes?
Some turn signals are amber and some are red using the same bulb as the brakes. In that case the brake lights go through the turn signal switch.
But you would have power at the pedal switch.
No relay but there should be a fuse in the dash anel or under the hood if you have a battery box under the hood. Your owner manual will tell you where the fuses are and which one is hte brake. Usually a 15 amp.
The fuse block that contains the brake light relay is under the left side of the rear seat.There is also
a fuse block under the right side of the rear seat. Another behind the dash under the steering column. And one more under the hood right front corner of the engine compartment. If the relay is
good, check the brake light switch for constant 12v in and 12v out when peddle is pushed.
The brake light switch is under the dash at the top of the brake peddle. Hope this helps.
When you push on the brake pedal with the ignition key in the run position, do you here or feel a clicking noise at the shifter?
There are also (2) fuses in the interior fuse box ( #17 and #32) that must be checked to make sure they are not blown. If the fuses are good, I would suspect either the brake switch or shift interlock solenoid.
The fuse supplies ignition voltage to the brake switch, when the brake is applied, the switch closes and voltage travels to the shift interlock solenoid. The solenoid is activated and the shift lever is unlocked.
So, it may be one of several things causing the problem.
1) blown fuse.
2) brake switch defective
3) shift inter lock solenoid defective.
4) wiring harness or connector problem.
under the brake peddle is a switch. Lift the brake peddle upwards and you will see that the brake light goes out [requires two people; one to hold the peddle up, other to view the brake lights]. Restrengthen the spring tension on the brake peddle.
Should the lights remain ON after you lift the brake peddle up, unplug one of the wires to the brake peddle switch. At this point, the brake lights should be off. This basically will determine whether your switch is shorted or is just a peddle pressing down on the switch due to a bad spring.
