Likely a bad bulb in the brake, it is probably a duel filament and one filament can short inside the bulb to the other circuit. It could also be a bad earth wire to the tail\stop light

Replace the turn signal switch. Bad contact inside causing a crossing of the circuits. When the turn signal is applied it should open the brake light circuit allowing for just the signal to work. Doesn't sound like the switch is doing it's job.

Check the bulb. The problem has to be right there at the socket for the left rear. You do understand how the two filament bulbs work? The brake and turns use one filament, while the park lights use the smaller , less bright filament. And the bulb has two buttons on the bottom that touch two buttons in the socket. That is how the current is carried separate for the two lights.
It sounds like your bulb is wrong, or the socket itself is compromised.

Left rear turn signal and brake light dont work


You have a broken wire to the turn/brake light portion of the light as they use the same wire. Or where the plug goes into the light assy could be bad. Torsion mount lights are horrible and you should think about replacing with a universal light that you can wire direct.

I have a 2002 Chev Cavalier that had the same exact problem. I replaced the bulb harness (purchased from a chevy dealership for around $5) which was fairly easy to do. I have had zero problems with it since.
