    If the brake lights work , it most likely is a bad turn signal switch. Could be bad connections at the switch connecter. If the brake lights don't work , check the bulbs. The turn signal and brake use the same filament in bulb. Might be a ground problem , but usually the tail lights will be very dim.
    You should use a test light or voltmeter to check at the turn signal switch connector for voltage on the turn signal wires. You can get the wire colors off of a diagram.
    good luck , you can do it.

    You're not clueless, just smart enough to ask someone who has been down the road before you. Saves a lot of aggravation and allows you to move on the the next problem. LOL. A complete rewire for my '54 Ranch Wagon is in the near future so I'm sure I'll have issues as well. With your perseverance and the helpful HAMBER's you'll sort it.
