Not sure what the HAZ FL and Stop LP is?

Check fuse 19 and fuse 40. These are located on right side of center console. Remove cover to access fuse panel.

19 and 40 look good 55 is loose.
Expert:  Dave Nova replied 7 months ago.
Use a small pick (or paperclip) to bend the fuse contacts so that it makes a tight connection. Then recheck light operation and let me know. Also check to see if center mount brake light works.
Customer: replied 7 months ago.
that did not work still no blinkers and brake lights
Expert:  Dave Nova replied 7 months ago.
What about the center brake light?
Customer: replied 7 months ago.
No
Expert:  Dave Nova replied 7 months ago.
The problem then is most likely in the flasher relay. This is also located in the center console fuse panel. Replacing the relay should fix the problem.
