Hi Im David, sounds like multiple issues. has he checked the fuses yet?

Expert:  david craig replied 18 days ago.

what kind of odor are you talking about? electrical?

Customer: replied 18 days ago.
he has checked fuses, all are good. The smell is kinda like a skunk smell, and no I have not run over a skunk
Expert:  david craig replied 18 days ago.

ok, grounds G400 and G401 will need to be checked to make sure they are good. as far as the smell, without being there its hard for me to assume anything. if the lever has been having a hard time staying up, i would recommend replacing the turn signal lecer also

Expert:  david craig replied 18 days ago.

he also needs to check for power at the sockets for the lights if the grounds appear to be good. i would also recommend checking for proper output of the brake light switch. and the condition of its connector and wiring.
