1965 fastback electrical problem

I need some hep. I bought a fully restored 1965 fastback with a 289. This is my first car and there are some projects but got a great deal on a at home restored car. Anyway I have an electrical problem and can't figure it out as these issues definitely aren't my strong suit. When you step on the brake the left brake light does not come on but the front left turn signal comes on and stays on as long as you have your foot on the pedal. I've been told its a grounding issue but noone can seem to tell me where. Anyone have any suggestions?? Thanks a lot

Re: 1965 fastback electrical problem

The turn signal switch is at fault. By design the switch shut's off the brake light and use's that circuit for a turn signal even when braking. Your switch is shorted inside letting current flow thru the brake light circuit to the turn signal circuit in front. I have a nice free HowTo video uploaded on my site that outline's the procedure to replace the switch.
