The brake light bulb was burnt out so I just replaced that, now the brake light stays lit all the time and grabbing the brakes does nothing. The turn signals are still not working, although they do flash normally when the security system notices stuff. I checked the fuse to the lights and it is fine. Anyone else have this issue or know where to begin? Thanks.
What did you use to replace the brake light bulb?
Are you sure it’s the brake light that's on and not just the running light?
Have you checked the ACCY fuse?
Does the IM (instrument module) WOW?
A WOW test is performed by turning the ignition switch to the ACC position. The IM background lighting should illuminate, the "idiot" lights controlled by serial data should illuminate (= battery, security, coolant temperature and check engine light), and the gauge needles should sweep through their full range of motion.
