based on the information provided, I would replace the ACCESSORY fuse.it's in a fuse block under your left side cover, behind the saddle bag. the ACCY fuse provides power for the turn signal module and brake light.there is also a BRAKE fuse for the brake relay, but this would have no affect on the turn signals.but if you replace the accy fuse and the turn signals work but the brake light does not, replace the Brake fuse as well. let me know if you need more help.Steve
