Question about Chevrolet Express Cargo
I have A 2000 Chevy 3500 Express Van. The brake lights and the emergency flashers don't work. But the parking lights and the turn signals work. I Checked brake switch, fuses in both fuse boxes, and flasher relay.
Could the problem be in the turn signal/ multi function on the steering column?
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."
Check both of the back socket ( back of your car left & right side) where it go the lights bowls for the stop, turn signal, hazard lights, pull out each light bowl & check inside where it go the light bowl to see if you see any brown spark color, in my car was the lights on the middle have like brown spark I just change for a used from the junk yard & the problem go away, my problem on the van was when I pres the break the lights
turn off, hope this help you, inside of the socket have to be clean all same color you don't need to change nothing if all same color & especially if you don't see spark color, the shocker of my car looks in good condition just where it go the lights bowls have little spark color they don't suppose to have any spark color, hope this help you
