Question about 2002 Mazda Tribute
The brake light switch at the brake pedal controls the brake lights and the gearshift release solenoid. It should have no effect on the signal lights. You may have 2 problems. You can try tapping the brake light switch and moving the contact plunger by hand to see if the brake lights/shift release will work. If it starts operating again, I would replace it immediaetly before it fails completely

On your parking brake assembly is a single wire switch. You can unplug it, but you will have to remember not to drive with it set. To replace the switch the whole assembly will have to come out. The switch is about $20 and labor should run about two hours. Good Luck

When you experience this problem, check to see if your brake lights are coming on. It could be as simple as a brake light switch malfunction. If the brake lights are functioning as the problem is occurring then you could for example have a problem with the shift interlock solenoid.

There is a harness that you unplugged for the rear tail lamp. Make sure it is fully pressed and locked. This is always the cause on jags for tail lamp failure.
