brake lights going out

when headlights are on and brakes are applied, the left brake light goes out. both brake lights work when headlights are off. I can hear the relays under dash clicking louder than normal, and have dismantled the dash but I don't have the fuse or relay schedule for the panel can someone tell me if any of the relays could be the problem

Any new bulbs or have you removed the assemblies for any reason? Have you ever had a tow harness?

I had/still have the same problem. Mine is more extreme however. I replaced the flasher unit in the steering wheel, but it didn't do anything. My brake lights don't work, except the one over the tire. The blinkers fast flash. I had to take out the back-up lamps, because when they were in, the entire back would flash hazard when I turned on the blinker.

Still no solution!

You have a bad ground to the rear light harness. Run a new ground.
