This is my first post here, so I'll try and keep it simple.
I have a 88 GT 5.0 5speed. I just found out my brake lights don't light up, nor does my left rear turn signal work. First, on the turn signal, I have power to both rear turn signals and I did a continuity test on the ground. On the brake lights I have already replaced the brake light switch, verified power to both sides of the switch.
When I got the car back in April, I had hazards, but no turn signals so I replaced the multifunction switch with a repro from NPD which didn't fix the issue, come to find out the flasher for the turn signals was hidden under the steering column, after replacing that I had signals. Do you think the multifunction switch is the problem? If not where else should I start looking?
If you have power and ground at the turn signal, it should work then. Did you check the bulb?
maybe your wording is confusing me, but when you put your turn signal on, i took it as you verifies that you do get 12V at the bulb socket that should blink the bulb? Is that correct? Then the issue is at the socket/bulb.
Yes I checked the bulb, I swapped it with the right side bulb. When I turn on the turn signal I get 12v at the bulb socket as it blinks.
Does anyone know if the brake lights run through the multi function switch?
Brake lights don't run through the multifunction switch.
