YIKES!
I just noticed that the map light comes on when I press the brake pedal.[censored]?
Going to have to dive deep into this one.

If the dome light goes on when stepping on the brake pedal of a 67 GTO, that means the brake light fuse is blown. Could just be something similar.

Interior lights only come on when both fuses are blown. I replaced the fuses and now I'm back to square 1. Everything works fine except left blinker. Keeping it on blows the fuses. The dash wire harness has never been cut or messed with and I clean the bulkhead connectors with contact cleaner from time to time. I'm going to start off by replacing the directional switch in the column. I guy I met at a show yesterday said he had a similar problem and it was the directional switch. I see many after market switches out there. Can someone recommend a good source?

Yeah, weird things can happen at the directional switch.

If this helps illustrate my comment: A guy told me in traffic one day that the left rear brake light wasn't working on my '67 Satellite. Turns out the screw holding the directional switch stalk got loose inside the steering column. The force of gravity on the loose directional stalk moved it downward close enough to the 'Left Turn' detent, that it cut power to the left tail light but ONLY WHEN BRAKING. Weird but true. All I had to do was tighten the stalk screw and the problem was fixed.
