He is talking about the light switch itself. The lighting control module is just a big technical word for the light switch.

My turn signals flash wheni either hit the switch left or right n when brake is applied amber lights come on


Ahh. This is an easy one. The most common cause of problems like this is a failed lamp (bulb). The lamps in most cars are dual-filament lamps. One filament (the dimmer one) is for taillights or front marker lights. The other (the brighter one) is used for brake lights and turn signals.

Sometimes when a bulb fails, one of the filaments breaks and the broken fragment touches the other filament. This connects the light circuit to the brake/turn-signal circuit and you get strange effects like the one you describe.

Fixing this is easy,
  1. Turn on the parking lights. Walk around the car and look for the light (front and rear) that's not on. Replace that defective lamp.
  2. If that doesn't work, turn off the parking lights and turn on the 4-way flashers. Walk around the car and look for the one that's not flashing. Replace that defective lamp.

No brake lights when i push the pedal


Its the signal light switch on the lever.
THe signal switch has all connections relating to the brake lights!
solution play around with the lever and see or get someone to see the brake lights work with the brake pedal down.
My car does the same thing! when i move the lever towards activaiting the high beams the brake lights work.
just gently push on the lever to see the lights go on.
you have to replace the switch and requires removing the steering wheel without setting off the airbag.

Ok. First of all, chk all the bulbs. Well at least the four parking lamps. The ones that are supposed to flash. One or two are burnd out. It happens. The flasher(s) work on resistance and that is provided by the bulbs.Brake likes and the turn signals are electrically associated.and you already said one side does not work, so let's start with bulb inspection Let me know

No brake lights of blinkers 1990 dodge dynasty


While not likely, it is possible that the light bulbs in both sides are have bad filaments. Turn on ignition key (but don't start engine). Then turn on parking lamps (first detent or "click" on headlamp switch). Walk around car and look for illumination on front parking lamps and rear tail lights. Turn on the right turn signal. Are those (right hand) lamps now changing brilliance? Try the left turn signal in the same manner. Are those (left hand) front and rear lights changing briiliance? Take note of any positions that did NOT change briliance when the turn signals were activated. If NONE changed briliance, you either have a bunch of bad bulbs (unlikely) or a bad flasher (more likely) or a bad turn signal switch (most likely) or perhaps wiring problems (possible if the car has been in a collision or has been "worked on" by some "non-expert" mechanic). Check the action of the emergency flasher control switch located on the steering column (facing up). Pushing it in (down) should result in the button going to two different heights alternately (low, high, low, high). You could just have bad flashers or corroded flasher contacts! Good luck!

Signal and emergency ligths stop working


I would check the bulbs, first with just parking lights on - making sure all light - then to see if brake lights work.

If brake lights work, check you parking/signal lights, as they may be of the "two filament" variety. If this is the case, and they are not burned out, check to make sure that the FLASHER module works and that the button for the EMER FLASHER works.

If either is not working, neither will your turn signals, as they depend on the flasher module.

Good luck !!
