For the turn signal to work while the brake is pressed, the power for the brake light would have to route through the turn signal wire.

On this particular kit, the installation directions are pretty crappy.
If it's a Chinese light kit, your lights may be pinned backwards. Do your tail lights turn on bright or dim when you pull the headlights on? I've often found where they will use the bright brake light circuit for running lights. If so, you'll have to swap the two hot wires in the back of the light.

It's the Chinese kit. Grab it as part of a bunch of items needed for the cart a local guy was getting rid of.

Show me a picture of both sides. The wire harness on the car and the tail light where it plugs in to it. You need to identify which one is the negative and leave it alone. Swap the other two. The harness coming out of the car should have a black wire for the negative.

I'll run a tester to confirm the negative, but for anyone following this thread. Photo of pigtail on a stock 2006 precedent

Make sure the Voltages are right on the Cart side of the wiring:
Head Lights Only: +12v between Brown and Black/white wires.
Brake Lights Only: +12v between Yellow and Black/white wires
Turn Signal/Flasher Only: Pulsed +12v between Yellow and Black/white wires.
If All of those voltages are correct, the cart side of the wiring is right.

You can use this diagram for reference:

The one on the left, (Black wire with white stripe) is the ground. You need to swap the other two wires and leave this one alone. Swap them on the tail light. There is no need to cut the factory wire harness, as it is correct. It's the light itself that is pinned backwards.

The fix that TahoeDawgZ71 is for a different symptom.

If the 2 hot wires are reversed, the Tail light filament that comes ON with the Headlight is the brighter one, so when the brake and/or flasher comes ON, You cannot see them as they are dimmer than the filament that is already ON.

In Your case it may be a wiring problem with the flasher relay.
