Ground fault? I had a similar problem although I also lost my water temp, tach, fuel and alt gauges. Turns out they all share a common ground. Found that the wiring on my signal light had rubbed through and was causing a short.

I would check the switch, I had an issue on mine where I lost the head lights. The contacts wore out.... If you are comfortable with wiring make a jumper wire to test it. A test light will also come in handy.

Could corrision issues with the rear signals & brakes cause a common ground problem where I don't have signals?




Planning on replacing rear with LEDs from ECR.

I would recheck your fuses. Then check the bulbs. The lights are grounded into a 4 way bullet connector at each rear corner so it's unlikely that the ground at the lights is at fault. The signal failure could be at the stalk or the hazard switch. The brake lights are separate, so I'm not sure why they would be out as well.

Do they flash when you activate the hazard switch? Back and front? Right and left?

DAMN!!! Found the problem!!! I read a previous post on the hazard switch sticking....I assumed that wasn't the problem because I haven't used my hazards recently. But that's what is was...hazard stuck in a little....guess one of the kids pushed it or something. Besides that being the main issue....I still have the problem of all of my rear brake lights flashing whenever I have the left blinker on....I've tried switching out the two relays in the fuse panel...I guess the next step is to replace them...unless someone has an idea of why all the brake lights are flashing in the left position? thanks for emphasing the hazard switch again...justin
