When you turn on your blinkers they work fine until you hit the brakes then the blinker stops blinking and stays on how do you fix this?

You might want to try replacing the bulbs in the tail lights, could be a short in the bulb or possibly a bad ground connection

You have installed a single contact bulb (possibly an 1156) into a brake light socket meant for a dual-contact bulb. The single contact bulb is shorting the two contacts in the dual-contact socket.

The Fix: Replace the improper single-contact (single filament) bulb with the proper dual-contact (dual-filament) bulb. Dual filament bulbs are typically used in brake lights. Look there first.

The first thing I would do is replace the flasher. The flasher is what controls the on / off of your blinkers, giving you the blink blink. If that doesn't work, it sounds like your turn signal switch is going bad. GOOD LUCK

If you turn on your 1999 mustang v6 car and the right signal light stays on and doesn't blink and you switch the car off and then the left signal light stays on without blinking, then you need to see a mechanic.
