Check your multiswitch that controls that and also check coresponding fuses

yeah the multiswitch is the switch that turns the lights on and brights and blinkers pull the whole assembly and clean the contacts with brake kleen Iggy did a write up on it here somewhere.

This just happened to me and I got pulled over for it.

I believe the fuse it was, was in the passenger panel. a 10 or 15 for illumination or something like that.
