Thanks in advance.
Recently I needed my 4 way flashers on. I pushed in the switch but nothing. I then noticed my turn signals were not working and after further inspection no brake lights.
Here is what does work: If I turn on my hazard/4 way flashers and place foot on brake my signals will work but still no brake lights.

I am wondering if the four way flasher contacts/harness is bad or could it be something more simpler?
