Question about 1988 Chevrolet K1500
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.
