    All of a sudden my brake lights and turn signals are not working. I replaced the fuses and they both blew, even with the ignition off. I had to re replace the ignition lock today, I thought that was causing the problem but all the wires looked solid. Can anyone send a wiring diagram or a heads up as I have no access to a manual? Thanks a bunch. Gonna go start digging with a test light right now.

    i hope this helps.....I had the same problem on an 81 suburban, the tailgate over the years from opening and closing caused the rubber over the wires to fray off and ground out the circuit. I would definately use a test light and try to follow every inch of the wires going back to the lights . I don't have a diagram for you though sorry.....good luck ......js

    Hey JimmyDie6.2, I found it. It was my trailerlight hook up. It had rubbed on the frame for sooooo long it just attatched itself to the frame. All is well!

    I'm curious though, why did the turn signals bug out and burn the fuse? theyre on a different circuit right? a different fuse anyway.
