my brake lights and turn signals dont work, i replaced the bulbs and that didnt work. I looked for the fuse under the dash and I cant find where it say brake light/signal...is there a different spot where other fuses might be??? Or does anyone know what gauge/color the fuse might be? PLEASE Help!!!

also, could a wire be shorted and make all those lights not work???

Is it just the rear turn signals? Because the brakes and turn signals are 2 different fuses Brakes is #9, and t/s is #5... Both are yellow 20A. Do your hazards work?

Looking at the fuse box with the horn relay and hazard flasher in the lower right corner, the cavities are as follows...
Turn 14 15
Flasher 7
1 4 8 11
2 5 9 12
3 6 10 13

14 is all the dashboard lights (3A Purple), 15 is empty... Do all your parking lights work? If so, your turn signal switch might be bad... The signals, hazards, and brake lights all go thru that switch......... Let me dig out a diagram and I'll tell you how to test it. Do you have a continuity tester (not a test light) or a multimeter?

I dont have a continuity tester or multimeter, so what your saying is that the fuses might be good and the problem might be in my steering col. where the turn signal switch is??? I'm going to replace those fuses soon just to be sure...i'll let you know if it worked or not....

Do the hazard lights work when you push or pull the switch. Sometimes this switch gets stuck at the halfway point.

okay ya know how i said my Hazard lights dont work, well when my friend went to look to see what the problem was, he accidently hit the hazard lights to turn them off and then tried the turn signals and brakes, Well they worked! It was the hazard light keeping the turn signals/brakes lights from working.....who woulda thought, i know I didn't....
