Car accident was May 2008 was reported to usaa insurance and nc commissioner. I am former us army spouse and contractor 15 years. I am back at home of record. I have lost over $5000 to this incident and I deal with added medical disabilities from this dealing with chronic back, tbi ptsd and brain injury to left side. Confirmed with cat scan and army womack hospital. Did not have health care at the time. I have had ignition switch. The light bulb dealing with nc testing issues costing me with testing. Ohio thanks goodness not. But brights don't come on. Radio clock stays on drained battery in the past. Also, there was a problem with the brakes.

Recently had turn signal problems, hazard light problems and brake light problems. Could not get front, right turn signal to turn off, could not get hazard lights to turn off, after maneuvering a bobby pin into the hazard light switch I temporarily fixed these two problems. I recently discovered that I do not have all 3 of my brake lights. I do not have the two side brake lights just the top one. I think that because all of these are problems are electrical they are tied into one another. No consequences yet, but am worried about the brake lights and them causing an accident.
