Customer Question
Electrical troubleshooting. Mechanic's Assistant:...

Electrical troubleshooting.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the make/model/year of your car?

When I use my left directional the left brake light and center brake light flash. Also at night when I step on the brake the left directional stops flashing until I release the brake pedal. Also when I'm using cruise control and turn on left directional it turns off cc.

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the brake fluid? How's the level and when was it last changed?

2005 gmc envoy

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Envoy yourself? What have you tried so far?

I have changed the multi function switch and that didn't work. I just tested the wire connection to the light looks like I'm assuming black wire ground is burnt out.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Tested all wires to left wire connector and all flash with use of a power probe.

Hello my name is ***** ***** welcome to just answers! I will be assisting you with all of your vehicle questions today. Give me one moment while I review your question and come back with a answer. Please be aware I do not know your skill level or abilities so I will be asking a lot of questions and in a lot of cases we will respond to each other quite a lot before we find a solution. As far as phone calls are concerned that is the system prompting you, not me, and they do cost more money, I prefer text but in some cases a phone call is required. If I don’t answer right away or quickly in conversation I am helping another customer or have stepped out for a moment and will respond as soon as I can. Ok lets get started!

So you have a rear connector burnt out?
