Ok check the bulbs they could may be bad, but im certain that the wiring is loose and may be hitting a ground under the hood look at the wiring and try to cover up any exposing wire with electrical tape, I modded my lighting system, I put leds like the audis on my car, and I did a bad job, whenever i hit the right/left signal the emergency lights would come up instead. haha. check the bulbs first, its a few dollar fix. if that doesnt do it check the wiring.

My 1993 Delta 88 is having a anti-lock brake light coming on and off when I first start it up. The light seems to stay on longer then normal then it will go out and it sometimes will come back on if I brake hard, then it will stay on for some time then it will go out again.

My 1994 chevy lumina car has a blinker problem. The right blinker and rear lights work fine.
