Hi!!
\015\012
\015\012If you activate the turn signal switch and you step on the brake pedal, the turn switch (on the steering column) deactivates the brake light to make the signal light more visible. The bulb for the stop and turn lights is the same.
\015\012
\015\012Turn hazard lights ON. If they don't blink, replace turn/hazard flasher, If one or more lights don't come on, replace bulb.
\015\012
\015\012Check fuse and circuit wiring for broken or loose connections. If all looks fine, check following:
\015\012
\015\012If front turn lights work fine, check brake/turn bulbs.
\015\012
\015\012If turn lights come on but don't blink, replace turn signal/hazard flasher.
\015\012
\015\012If front and back turn lights don't come on, replace switch on column.
\015\012
\015\012Let me know how it worked out, Good Luck

2000 Ford Expedition-Left turn signal and brake light in rear does not work, and left front flasher works but flashes quickly. The front and rear right side of turn signal and brake works perfectly. I changed bulb for left rear and on left top of vehicle for brake bulb, but still does not work. Also, my wipers do not stop on their own (as if off by one on each speed setting, because each speed works but not the "off" setting-it just stays on "1st speed setting) & I have to take fuse out of box f

I have a 2001 Chevrolet Malibu & was side swiped a few months ago. After this accident my turn signals sometimes work & sometimes they don't. We have checked the fuses and the light bulbs & all this is fine. Brake lights & hazard lights have never quit working. I went to O'Reilley's & they told me that I have to replace the top half of the steering wheel column which is $99 with a lifetime warranty. This is what controls the turn signals, windshield wipers & brights on either side of the steerin
