Default No Left Turn Signal Or Left Brake Lights

HELP! I JUST REPLACED MY DETENT FOR THE SHIFTER, SO I DECIDED TO REPLACE THE SHIFT LEVER. COME TO FIND OUT , DETENT WAS NOT WORN BUT SHIFTER WAS, GO FIGURE. ANYWAY, I DECIDED TO REPAIR MY COLLAR ALSO SINCE IT WAS WORN. SO INSTEAD OF TAKING TURN SIGNAL APART, HEARD HORROR STORIES, OR UN-PLUGING THE WIRES AND PULLING THEM THROUGH THE COLLUM , I DECIDED TO MARK EACH WIRE AND CUT AND SPLICE THEM BACK WITH BUTT SPLICES. EVERYTHING WHEN GOOD. I REPAIRED MY COLLAR WITH 2 STEEL BUSHINGS AND THEY WORK BEAUTIFULLY. BY THE WAY IF ANYONE WANTS THEIR'S REPAIRED, I CAN DO IT. SEND ME AN EMAIL AND WE WILL TALK. I PUT EVERYTHING BACK TOGETHER AND SPLICED THE WIRES BUT I LOST 2 OF MY MARKERS PULLING THE WIRES THRU THE COLLAR AND WHEN I HOOKED THE UP MY RIGHT WORKS BUT THE LEFT COMES ON DIM AND DOES NOT BLINK, BUT WHEN I STE ON BRAKE IT GLOWS BRIGHTER BUT I HAVE KNOW LIGHTS AT ALL ON THE LEFT. CROSSED WIRE? OR WHAT. I KNOW THIS IS LONG BUT HELP!
THANKS FOR ALL THE HELP

If the shifter is worn, then the detent plate is worn also. The new detent plate has a tighter slot for Park, which makes the car less likely to pop out of.

It sounds like you crossed couple of wires. Don't all those butt connectors take up too much space?

Thanks Guys. Closer Look At The Detent Shows Some Wear. Alex, I Do A Lot Of Wiring For Machines I Build And Found Connectors The Same Diameter As The Wire.
