Yep ~ That'll do it!
I should have recalled that from when I had the same problem!!!
Mine was also the grounded wires, but the turn lever made finding the
problem with the ground MUCH more complicated!
Good thing to remember though (like I didn't!)

JR and all:
Thanks! Boy do I feel stupid. As I was climbing in the car to change the
brake pedal sensor switch, I must have hit the turn signal switch and turned
on the right turn signal. I was checking the brakes with the ignition
switch turned off. I turned on the ignition, and both the left and right
turn signals worked. I then pressed the brakes and both brake lights
The original problem must have been the brake pedal sensor switch. Looks
like I will be going out for a ride tomorrow!

Does the right side turn signal flash at the rear? It uses the same
filament as the brake light. It is possible that you have a turn signal
Make sure that the turn switch is centered (neutral position) on the
steering column and then try stepping on the brake pedal. Let us know the
results of that test.
