Hello everyone.

Upon driving to a show this weekend, my followers noticed that I had no brake lights and when signaling, both sides flashed when signaling left or right.

Any suggestions where I should start looking?

Start with a check to see if the brake switch works then proceed to the turn signal switch wiring.
Good Luck

Check your ground. You may have lost it.

I agree with Jim. Strange phenomenon with lights is usually ground problems.

Thanks for the help guys.
Now, I can't seem to locate the stop light switch. Is it near the booster, on the firewall, or??
The black wire in the attached pic has no mate. It is with the other light wires on the driver side fender/firewall. Any idea what it is for?
Your help is always appreciated!

A brake booster did not come on your car from the factory. The brake light switch is on top of the brake junction block that is bolted to the LH frame rail near the cowl. If you need a brake light switch, I have new ones that are impervious to DOT5 and judge well.

The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.
