    i have a electrical problem. i have front and rear lites (when u pull out on lite switch), only side marker turn signals, and no rear brake lites, and no rear hazards. ive checked fuse box and lite bulds, and im in process of checking grounds. ive also replaced the brake lite switch close to the column. any and all help would be greatly appreciated. thanks in advance.

    Might wanna check the switch itself?

    Oh and check the turn signal circuit as well.

    Turn signal switch in the column is likely fubar'd. Brake and Hazards are run through the column switch. They're not that expensive, but it is time consuming to replace.

    Mine went crazy. Turned out to be a short in the wiring harness for the trailer (pigtail). If you have one, you might want to check that also.
