Brake lights and turn signals won’t work!

I have a 64 ranchero and I just recently replaced my column shifter sleeve because mine broke. When I hooked everything back up the brake lights and turn signals won’t work anymore. It’s all put back correctly I even check the diagram. Everything worked before btw. I’ve also checked the fuses behind the light switch and it’s fine. Anything helps!!

Re: Brake lights and turn signals won’t work!

It appears likely that something was done wrong- it worked before, and now it doesn't. I can tell you that I had issues with brake lights & turn signals when I bought my '65, but replacing the mechanical switch down on the brake pedal corrected them all.

Did you happen to use a volt meter to check anything?
