You definitely have an electrical short! When the left signal is turned on the electrical shouldn't be attached to any other circuit (unless a short exists) by feeding those other lights.

When you press on the brake the lights go out since the short is not being grounded and I'm surprised you haven't blown a fuse when this happens since the electricity that should have run through the light(s), it now going straight back to the battery and ground shorting.

Electrical shorts are the most elaborate and the mechanic could take 3-4 hours to isolate (less with specific description of event provided by you).

I have the official Durango shop manual mechanics use, and the electrical paths are specific, but complex. Don't think this is something you should attempt. BUT if you want to look somewhere.......start with.....(checking book)...nope too many possibilities, and hands on testing needs to be done to isolate problem.

I have a 2001 Oldsmobile Silhouette. When I turn on my left blinker all is fine until I press the break then the right blinker shows solid on dash and park assist lights flash. When I turn on right...


Your problem is either a bad bulb in the tail light/brake lights or your turn signal switch is bad. I'm more inclined to say that the problem is the turn signal switch and you need to replace it.

2008 ford f250: rear passenger brake,tail and blinker not working. the front blinker and side marker light on mirror works. dash blinker is blinking very fast


could be the tail lite housing. or the ground on the frame rail back near that location. remove the assembly till its hanging by its wires and remove the bulb. using a test lite probe the socket with the flasher on see if it blinks. if not go down under the rear of the truck and unplug the connector for both tail lites and do the same probe each connector on the harness that goes forward till your test lite starts to blink if it does there then the tail lite assembly is bad if not then repost and ill lead you further

2006 Cobalt rear driver side blinker doesn't blink (front blinker does blink). However, the bulb is also the tail light bulb and works fine. What do I need to replace?


More than likely its the bulb, the bulb has two filements, one for brake and one for turn signal, If you take it out and hold it up to a light, i bet youll find with a close look one filiment is broken!

NO PROBLEM TURN ON THE RIGHT BLINKER THEN WALK AROUND THE CAR MAKE SURE FRONT AND REAR BULBS ARE FLASHING... IF YOU HAVE A BULB OUT YOU WILL NOT OFFER ENOUGH OF A LOAD TO THE FLASHER... WILL CAUSE IT TO FLASH FAST... IF OK THEN MAKE SURE THE PROPER BULB NUMBER ON BULBS AND MAKE SURE CORRECT BULBS USED IN VEHICLE.... IF OK CHANGE FLASHER

1995 GMC Sierra 4x4 - Having tail light problems


Most likely it is a groung issue where your rear wiring harness grounds to the frame. There may also be additional grounds for the wiring harness along the frame before the ground by the rear bumper. One other option is to make sure you have the correct bulbs in. I have seen something pretty similar to that caused by improper bulbs. Make sure your bulbs for the brake light/turn signal have dual filaments as that could be an indication you have the wrong ones; if you have the bulbs I think you do.

If you can turn the blinker on left or right and the light comes on but doesn't blink......Open the drivers door, there is a fuse box, On the side of the dash.. The relay willl be a small silver canister looking relay in with the fuses.. put your finger on it and turn the blinker on.. you should feel and hear a click...( With the key in the on position ).. That is what needed replaced if it doesn't keep clicking...Thats the turn signal relay... What makes it blink.......Hope this helps..
