Thank you for asking your question on JustAnswer.

Verify power to the multifunction switch. The Violet/Orange (VT/OG) wire should be hot whenever the key is in the run position and comes from fuse 7 in the Central Junction Box (CJB).

The Light Green/Red (LG/RD) wire should be hot at all times and is feed from fuse 11 in the CJB.

If OK, verify the White/Red (WH/RD) wire that goes to the flasher is hot. When the switch is in the hazard position, it gets it's power from the LG/RD wire. When it is in the normal position, it gets it's power from the VT/OG wire. Also check for a good ground on the Black (BK) wire.

Unplug the multifunction switch and jumper the VT/OG wire to the Light Green/Orange (LG/OG) wire. This should make the left rear stop lamp come on.
This verifies there are no harness concerns from the multifunction switch to the rear of the vehicle. Jump the VT/OG wire to the Orange/Light Blue (OG/LB) wire. This should make the right rear stop lamp come on.

If OK, jump the Light Blue wire from the flasher to the LG/OG and the OB/LB wire. This by-passes the multifunction switch and the rear turn signal bulbs should flash.
electronic flasher if they don't flash.

Think of the flasher like a circuit breaker. A path to ground on the LB wire, such as the turn signal bulb filaments should make the flasher flash.

Thanks for the quick response, have not tested yet my multimeter battery dead. I just found out that the brake lights do not work either. the head lights do.
