Electrical Issues - Blinkers / Brake Lights

Hello, I'm having some wiring issues on a 1970 chevelle.

This is all fresh wiring, no fuse panel, all straight wiring.

The issue is, I can either have the brake lights work fully functional, or the blinkers fully functional, but I cannot get them both to function properly at the same time. One works and the other won't at all.

Can someone point me in the direction of maybe a good online wiring diagram, or possibly advise me on what could be wrong?

Thank you for the help!

No fuse panel, really?

You do know that the circuit for the brake lights go up through two sets of normally closed contacts in the turn signal switch, right?

White wire from stop light switch feeds the N.O. contacts, then back out of the contacts on yellow for left brake and dark green for right brake.

Re: Electrical Issues - Blinkers / Brake Lights

No Fuses? No Circuit Breakers? A short will most likely create a fire that most likely burns your car down...

If you had a normal system, I'd tell you to check the grounds in the trunk.

Re: Electrical Issues - Blinkers / Brake Lights

Be sure that you have the correct 1157 bulbs and that they are inserted correctly, double check each socket on each tail light and the parking lights.

If one of those 1157 bulbs isn't installed correctly it will mess up the functionality of both the tail lights and brake lights.

You need a fuse panel period.
