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

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.
