steering column issues

so my brake lights keep going out. i can play with the tilt on my steering column and it comes back on. seems like a broken wire or a bad turn signal switch. anyone have this issue? how hard was it to fix?

your right......sounds like a bad wire in there. you will have to bull steering wheel and column. I haven't done it yet, but about to have too.

the brake lights run through the directional switch, it is simple to replace. remove steering wheel then depress the lock plate and remove the snap ring. next remove the lock plate and canceling cam. from there you will remove three phillips screws and one more that hold the pivot arm to the wiper switch. unplug slide it out and replace with new one... reverse the process for reassembly

my brake lights do not work when i depress the brake, but when i turn the lights on they work as driving lights and stay dimly lit but i push the break and they dont get any brighter
would changing the directional switch possibly help this?

I bet that's in the switch on the pedal assembly. It's a mofo to get at but doable

ok i fixed it. i pulled the connector loose under the dash and sprayed it with electrical contact cleaner, the mad sure each wire was getting a solid contact. i also read to spray into the switch on the column with wd40 and it helped alot, i got my windshield sprayers back!
