Central junction box ; Fuse number 6 -- 15Amp is for flasher relay.
Central junction box; Fuse number 13 -- 20Amp is for stoplamps

Let me know if either of these helps.

Thanks for using 2CarPros. Com!

It started out on one side and then came back and then both sides went out.

Ok, is power getting to bulb housing? Must be a ground wire loose somewhere, I would suspect at the taillamps themselves because the brake lights run through the brake light switch and the signals run through a flasher relay so they are not on same circuit.

Where would you start to look for the ground wire that could be loose. I pulled the housing off the rear of the car and didn't see anything loose there.

I have looked over your vehicle's wiring diagram for the brake lamp circuit. These two circuits actually DO both get power from the multi-function (turn signal) switch. If the wiring is indeed good at both housings then I would suspect faulty switch.

If the switch is faulty wouldn't it effect the front blinkers also. They are both working.

From the wiring diagram, only the rear will be effected by a faulty multi-function switch.

Shoud be on the steering column. It is the switch used to operate the turn signals and high beams.
