Default Turn signal problems

Hey for some reason when i press on brakes my turn signal does not wont to work. The only time it will work is when i am not pressing on brakes. I have replaced the bulbs with new ones and i am still having this problem. What is possibly my problem?

Default Re: Turn signal problems

The common part would be the turn signal switch. The brakes power passes through this switch. There are some mechanical contacts inside this switch and eventually "wear" out. Some people have cleaned them and they work again. Some just replace.

But I would put money on the switch being the problem. I would grab one from somebody and switch it out to see if that fixes it. New ones are pretty pricey about 50 bucks. So see if you can borrow one to test first.
