Turn signal/ Brake Problem (1964 Bel Air)

Hey guys, so after replacing my turn signal housing assembly because the assembly in it before didn't automatically turn off the turn signal i've had nothing but problems, anyways the latest problem i've run into is my turn signals stop working when the brake is applied. Have any of you had a similar problem with this? Do you guys think it's the bulbs? or just a short somewhere? either way i greatly appreciate any info you guys have on this! It's frustrating beyond belief.

The attached schematics are a typical GM turn signal, brake light, hazard setup.
Any time the brakes are applied while the turn signal is on, the rear flashing turn signal will continue to flash and the opposite side rear bulb will light steady.
Make sure all the wires are connected per the attached drawing.

Sounds like you got a crossed wire somewhere, as Vic said trace your wires
