    I have an odd problem with my turn signals. So I’m
    Posting to this forum for help. When I press the brake pedal
    The front & rear amber turn signal bulbs illuminate with the brake
    Lights on the left side of the truck. The left side turn signal indictor
    On the dash also illuminates when pressing the brake pedal. Today
    I checked all of the bulbs & the sockets. All of the lights work &
    All of the bulb sockets & wires a look good. I checked the ground wires
    Both under the truck & in the engine bay. The truck is a 2008 base
    Model Tacoma with no tow package & nothing has been added
    To the electrical system. I have no ideas any help? :confused:

    I would check continuity on the fuses and relays, if they are ok it sounds like a hot is going to ground somewhere.
