Question about 2001 Chevrolet Cavalier
My 2001 Cavalier has lost the rear brake lights and turn signals and hazards. The center brake light still works. I have checked the bulbs and all the fuses in the fuse compartment everything checks good. The front turn signals work, the back up lights work which is part of the same bulb so I assume my ground is good. coincindently my odometer display light quit at the same time, all the gauges work and the dash lights all work. Any ideas on where to look next?
The problem is the turn signal/headlight/hazard switch assembly on the steering column which the brake light wiring runs through. The part is easy to change and cost about $50 at most parts stores

I replaced the turn signal switch and im still having the same problem no turn signals no brake lights at all and the abs light is still on. What else could be the problem?

I had the same problem and fixed it by spraying a small shot of wd40 (or contact cleaner) on the hazard switch and moving it back and forth a few times. I was about to buy the switch and heard about this, worked like a champ and was free!

From what I have been told, the turn signal switch requires pulling the steering wheel and air bag.
As the rear brake light works, can't I just tap the wires to the rear center brake light and run them to the rear brake lights ????

More than likely your hazzard switch (4 way emergency flasher switch)
