turn signals and brake lights

Hey everyone. I was having a problem where my fog lights would stay on and I determined it was the combination switch. So I swapped out the switch and now my turn signals and brake lights don't work. Only my 3rd brake light works. It doesn't even light up in the dash so I know it's not just a bulb. I think I might have a wiring problem now. Any suggestions?

make sure all the pins in the wide pigtail that attaches to the bottom of the column are all contacting. My brake lights didn't work because of this.

If you have a small screwdriver (precision) you can bend the tabs on the inside out slightly, that way they contact nicely. Also a small amount of dielectric grease will help. Just a dab on the end of a tooth pick.

Thank You for the help! It ended up being a fuse that we missed the first time. The spot was so tiny that it was barley noticeable. I am just glad I can drive it again
