Hi!!

The turn signal switch overrides your brake lights when activated, that's why when it fails, cuts power to both circuits.

For your type of vehicle, it is relatively easy to replace, remove steering wheel, unscrew turn signal lever, unplug electrical connector from underneath instrument panel by steering column, remove the 3 or 4 .screws fastening the switch and pull it out until connector is free. It is about 1/2 hr. job.

I suggest to get new switch first so you can get familiar with it.

Don't forget to rate this post. Good Luck.

How do I fix the problem with the rear left side indicator blinks really quickly when I press the brake pedal and then the brake light also starts to blink quickly as well. I hope you can help? ?


Your bulb might be burnt since most bulbs that are use for brake light and blinker are also used for lighting the same rear position light. But have you checked the front blinker when this happens? Some cars will act this way when a bulb is burnt. Good luck

Well, lets try this, if you have a trailer connector tapped into the tail lights check that for a grounded wire. If a wire has grounded or come free from the splices they won't work.

Normally with the blinker blinking really fast, it's telling you that one of the bulb is blown, front or rear signals. Check your fuse, and fuse relay to see if it would fix the promblem

It sounds like a bad light socket. The brake light and the parking/running/regular part of the socket are shorting out. When you press on the brake petal it's shorting out on the turn signal and sending current to the indicator (arrow) on the dash.. When you use the blinker, it's shorting with the brake light and causing them both to flash...

Check the socket and get back to me with the result.

You will need to start tracing the wiring. I have found "green" wiring in these vehicles for many electrical problems. Start at the front and work your way back.

Brake light and flasher


check and test the socket ( pig tail ) that the lite plus int for power when the flasher is on. If there is power to it try a different bulb, if there is no power then you will need to trace the wiring circuit back towards the fuse box testing for power at all junctions. Good luck, and remember to rate all solutions you get. Thanx
