Brake light and turn signal issue

I am having an issue with my brake lights and turn signals. Several months ago when I was doing my interior I installed factory console gauges. After installing the interior everything as far as tail lights and turn signals worked fine. Now I have no turn signals at all, not even coming on but not flashing. I have both tail lights working, but only the LH brake light. There is no power coming to the RH brake light socket at all when the brakes are applied. I do not have any burned out fuses and I changed the flasher but still have the issue. Any suggestions?

Wink Re: Brake light and turn signal issue

Check the voltages into an out of the 'Turn-Signal' switch.
The brake voltage runs from the white wire from the Brake-light switch, up into the Turn-signal switch and is routed to the rear as directed by the switch through the yellow (LH) and Dark Green (RH) wires.
So if you have voltage at the connector on the White and the Yellow, but not the Dk Green, when stepping on the brake pedal - then the Turn-Signal switch is bad or there is a bad connection in the column ...

If a man says something in the garage - and his wife can't hear him - is he still wrong !!!

Re: Brake light and turn signal issue

There are 2 flashers. The one on the fuse block is the 4 way flasher and the directional flasher is under the dash behind the radio.
