Check the fuse for the turn signals. I had the same problem with an '02 Impala. Turned out that the fuse wasn't making good contact with the metal "tabs" inside the fuse box slots for the fuse. HTH. -Jim

We did that still no luck. Just can't figure out why the brake lights won' light up when we use the turn signal. The brake lights work fine all the other time but do not light up when I use the turn signal. The brake light in the rear view window works and is lit when I use the turn signals, I hate the thought of having to remove the air bag to get to the signal switch!

Power for the outboard brakes lights passes through the turn signal switch. The high mount stop light does not. The turn signal switch would be my next check. HTH. -Jim
