Turned out to be a faulty plug on the steering column.

Faulty as in it wasnt plugged in all the way. Now all my turn signals and the brake lights work again. Yay.

I cant figure out how I missed it. I think I thought it was the plug for the windshield wipers, cause they are about the same size.

Well atleast its fixed now.

I can take a pic tomorrow. But its a long black plug right under the steering column. I think they are supposed to be mounted to the bottom, but mine was kinda hanging.

And now when I press the brake, the side marker on the passenger front and the left turn signal light on the dash come on. And the front passenger light is always bright.
