Customer Question
Brake lights and rear...

Brake lights and rear turn signals won't work. New bulbs and new brake switch installed. Still not working.

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

2006 Chrysler TC Van

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

I was repaired at beginning of summer. Rear brake, so it was replaced then. I did check the fluid before I replaced bulbs and switch, but can check it again.

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

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

There are several things that could be going on and it will require some electrical testing to determine exactly what is wrong. The problem may be with the circuit boards in the lamp housings themselves or there may be separate issues affecting each of the different light systems.

Do the front turn signals work correctly?

Did this problem start after an accident, repair, jump start, etc?

The front signals work fine. They just blink at the faster pace "the pace that alerts us the bulb is normally out."
I have not had an accident, or jump start.I did have a rear left brake repair at the beginning of the spring. No problems until a couple of days ago.
At first it was just the left signal that started flashing fast, then both the next day before I could go buy bulbs.
I then replaced the signal bulbs and they continue to not light up but flash fast inside.

Are you hoping to do the required electrical testing yourself?

My dad who is an electrical engineer who has always worked on his cars is visiting this weekend. I had hoped to have it narrowed down for him to help.

Awesome. Thanks.

The first thing that should be done is test for power on the white/brown (left) and white/orange (right) wires with the turn signals on and see if an incandescent test light will flash.

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
