Brakes and blinkers not working (2005)

So my son's Malibu brake and blinkers are not working? Now the odd part the trunk center brake light works and the front blinkers work. I am at a loss as to what it might be I have look at diagrams and just can't seem to figure it out...

If your taillights have bulb sockets mounted to a PC board, that alone could be the issue. If they're the usual socket with a pigtail, then check the bulbs when you're back there checking for power.

In my 2011, the CHMSL is powered with a separate fuse and relay from the other 2 brake lights.

Check your fuses and look for any relay that might suggest it's for the lower brake lights.

If someone at one time added a trailer hook-up, it could be part or all of the issue.
