Actually it's a just-before-the-turn-signal problem. The power feed for the 
 turn signal and the power feed for the "factory" hazard (No such animal - 
it's  dealer or after install of a GM accessory kit) both feed power 
separate from the  brake pedal feed to the column. Dennis is correct, in  that it 
is likely  somewhere on he input side of the turn signal switch. Without the 
switch  activated, the power for the brake lights just enters and leaves 
through switch  wiring, heading to the rear of the car. The hazard interrupts 
that outward bound  feed (I believe) and feeds it's own power to all the turn 
signal filaments and  flashes them, front and rear.  Remember, if the turn 
signal filament lights  and flashes (brightly) with the turn signal switch, 
it isn't a problem at the  rear of the car, it is probably up under the 
dash, at the column connectors or  in the turn signal switch. Let us know what 
you find.
