This is happening off and on, or I get system notice on dash-service 4WD or/and stability system service.

The brake lights are wired through the turn signal switch so its a possibility that a connector has melted and the contacts are touching. That's just one of many possibilities.

Take that back I'd lean towards the hazard switch since all the signal lights come on

When I turn on a blinker, it works till I step on the brake pedal , then the blinker stops and all these other lights come on.

This only starts when the auto-headlights come on or I use reverse which would turn on the backup lights.

Have the wiring checked for shorts, something has gotten crossed over or lost a ground.

My 04 1500 r turn signal lights come on when i hit the brakes, and only works once in a while, was told to get a flasher module (?) 74.99$ at auto zone, got one and going to plug it in tonight. Any ideas clintgalloway@yahoo.com

You've possibly crossed your wires at the steering column.

Replacing all the light fuzes. already changed the flasher relay and removed all the body grounds underneath the tahoe and cleand them with a wire brush.

I had this problem, there is four connectors behind the rear passenger tire if you unplug them and clean the connections it will fix your problem.

My guess is your ignition switch. Not lock cylinder but ignition switch harness under coloum ... Chevy is notiorus for that. I've put about 3 in my 95 ,6.5 diesel Silverado When they start going bad all kinds of crazy stuff happens..
