Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2001 Olds Silhouette and it started out when we would put the right turn signal on and hit the
brake all the right rear lights would flash dimly. Now if the parking, brake or backup lights are on or used
it does it. I replaced the flasher and it didn't make any difference. Don't know what caused it to start, as
there was no damage done or other electrical problem when this started up. Any suggestions or
experience would be greatly appreciated.

Brake lights run through the turn signal switch and there's a possibility the switch is bad.
