Brake Lights and Blinkers Not Working

For the past few weeks, my blinkers started blinking really, really fast. It was just the left one but then the right one started doing it on and off. On July 4th weekend, my brake lights began acting up. They either didn't work at all, only one side would light up, or just the top one would light up. Obviously, I can't drive without brake lights. I took it to my dealership and they realized that the two spark plugs or whatever it is that makes the lights and blinkers work were not working. Well, they can't find the parts. Apparently, something is going on with the company that makes these parts. They are having problems finding them. I don't know if they have been discontinued or what. Chrysler can't find any to ship either. They have only been able to find one. My jeep is a 2010, it's only a year old! Is anyone else having this problem or know someone who is? They say I am not the only one having these problems. Any tips on what I should do?

Re: Brake Lights and Blinkers Not Working

i dont follow "they realized that the two spark plugs or whatever it is that makes the lights and blinkers work were not working"

we need to know exactly what parts you need. then we can try to help find you some.

i would think its a MODULE that lights the lights but????? a part name would be helpful.
maybe we can find you a used one/

Sounds like you're low on turn signal fluid to me!

Re: Brake Lights and Blinkers Not Working

No, not the fluid. They checked that. They checked everything! I assume it's the module you are talking about. The service manager said that it requires 2 of whatever the piece is called. They have found 1 and he said that would only work 1 side. The 2nd one would make the other side work.
