Couple Of Issues (need inspection)

#1 Brake Light is still on in dash, messed around with the connection near the E-brake took it on and off but no luck. any suggestions?
#2 Drivers side break light doesnt work? Blinker works but blinks faster than normally, and regular driving lights work, but as soon as i apply the brake its doesnt light. I changed the build twice, any other suggestions?
#3 Windsheild wipers; All of the sudden my windshield wipers on work on the continuous setting and the fast setting. If i put it on one of the settings that have a delay the wippers move but will stop in the middle of my windshield then move a little again, and stop? any one have this issue before?

Thanks All

Can't really help you much with #1, but my best suggestion for that would be to check your parking brake cable & shoes. There's a possibility that something in your parking brake cable ***'y is on the fritz. Also check your brake fluid level. I think, but not sure, your parking brake light will come on if it's low. As for #2, check your flasher relay(for irregular blinking problem). For #3, sounds like you need to check your wiper switch. If it's not that, it might be wiper motor itself. Wait until a few more members of the forum respond before you go & do anything. They may have some better suggestions than I do.

One thing that might help diagnose #2 is, the blinker works fine when hooked up to a trailer?
#1 is solved. After Changing a rear caliper and bleeding the lines i noticed alot more tension on the ebrak cable on one side then the other, sprayed some WD-40 on it couple taps with a hammer and it free'd right up causing the light to go off

Did you ever figure out your windshield wipers? Mine have done the same thing since I bought the truck 3 years ago, and I'm hoping I can figure out what it is!
