When this happened on my '01 venture, it disabled the traction control. What happens is that the left(in my case) taillight wire harness corrodes from rain and melts the contacts to the lights. If I step on the brakes when the turn signal is on, both dash turn indicatoprs will flash and the outside signal flashes quickly. The fix was to purchase another harness and splice it in, in place of the damaged one. It has happened twice to me within 4 months so I replaced the splices with quick connectors in case it happens again. I went to the junkyard and purchased 3 extra harnesses for little money and keep them in the car. Otherwise we love the van. HTH and good luck.

2003 Malibu right turn signal doesn't work when using brakes

Its not a fuse and I doubt it is a switch.
The most common problem is a bad ground going to the bulb.
If the three circuits going to the bulb are ok, it might be in the turn signal switch.

Kia turn signal works but blinks fast on right side when parking lights are on

turn on park lights and signal on right side and take a good look at the front and rear light , see if one is dimmer than the other this may be due to a bad ground and when the park lights are on and drawing more power it also needs better ground, check the sockets front and rear try wiggling the bulb to see which one is causing the problem

What would cause the ABS light, break light and traction control light are on during normal operation

well the abs and traction control lights go on when the wheel speed sensor circuit doesn't get a signal, or gets an erroneous signal compared to the other 3 wheel speed sensors. The brake light might be low fluid, or a more serious brake problem.

Left turn signal start normal then gets faster.

First thing to look for is a bulb that's not working. Most cars use this feature to let you know when a light is not working. Try this: While the left flasher is going fast, check to make sure ALL the lights are working as there may be more than two. Use the right signal as a reference to check how many there are that SHOULD be working.

If this problem comes and goes, there is most likely a bad connection between bulb and socket and if so, unplugging/replugging the bulb should fix it. There are two bulb types: push-in and push-twist-pull.

Feedback always welcome, and don't forget to vote!

Flasher is screwed up

This sounds like a bad flasher unit. Simply by replacing this unit should fix this problem. Usually they are located on the top of the steering wheel beneath the trim. You have to disassemble the trim around the steering column.
