Another signal/brake issue

Need some assistance, please.
The signals don't work at all. Brakes lights don't work, either. Flashers work in front, only. Running lights work all around.
I have proven this..battery to the brake light switch is good, and the switch is working properly.
With the flashers (front only) working, I see 12v on & off, on the contacts in the steering wheel.
As a sidenote, the backup lights work also.
Regarding the brake lamps, I haven't checked for continuity from the rear, either side through the harness to the front. Because both brakes/rear sigs do not work, I'm assuming that these joined leads at the rear are the
20brn pair, and are prob good up to the junction in the rear.
Also, the flasher relay & the signal relay are the same part #. They are the originals, and everything worked correctly before the car was torn apart. Bec the relays are the same, I swapped them...no change in status.
Question...will a bad connection in the rear keep the entire signal ckt from working?
Where is the best spot to begin? Thanks.

Re: Another signal/brake issue

Tail lights are their own circuit, brown wire.
Turn signal, brake light, and emergency flashers are the other colored wire of the socket(s). Power goes through the turn signal switch.
Brake light power - pink (power) to brake light switch, press pedal, switch closes, power out to t/sig switch.
Good grounds at sockets help wonders.
Flasher units should be two separate part numbers. 552LL will work turn signals, next to steering column, 4-way flasher is on fuse panel.

Re: Another signal/brake issue

Everett, given your info, a "light" just went off. Tommorrow, I'll recheck the areas you've noted.
Thank you, sir!

Re: Another signal/brake issue

OK, the problem is that the new plastic Turn Sig Cam Activator has no metal plate on the back. This plate has contacts which would ride those coming from the steering wheel, and join the contacts appropriately.
A call to Classic Industries was unsuccessful. They do not offer the metal plate.
Does anyone know where this can be purchased...hopefully without buying the $45 model complete.
Thanks!

Re: Another signal/brake issue

I'll have to look at a picture of t/sig switch to get an idea of your description.

Re: Another signal/brake issue

Took a couple of pics today & didn't have time to post.
Will post them as soon as I get home from work after 9 est.

Everett, here is the turn sig actuator. The first pic shows the side of the actuator which would face the contacts within the steering wheel. I believe that there should be a metal contact plate over the area with the four dots. A tech at Classic Industries agreed but said that they do not offer that piece.
