First my rear left went out, then my rear right. The front still work, and when i put on the signal on, the front signal and dash light blink very rapidly ( I believe to let me know that it's not working since it happens when the rear is not working). I replaced the bulbs (with the recommended type) the right rear side still did not work, the left rear side worked normally again for about 3 blocks then went back to not working and neither has worked since. Any ideas anybody? If the police see me again without the signals (even though I use the hand signals as backup) I will get a very expensive ticket. Any suggestions would be appreciated

No park lights on right side, front or back?
Use a testlight and see if power is present at the contacts in the socket with park lights on. There may also be a separate ground for right rear, but I doubt it. If you don't have power to the socket, look for a broken wire between the left rear and right rear. (The socket will have two contact points-one for park lights, one for brake and turn signals.)
The 2 filament on the LH Front turn signal is most likely burned out, ...........or the ground to it, & the entire socket needs replaced. Caution lights, send signals to ALL FRONT & REAR lights. All turn signal lights must be in working order, as it is a "pulsating" currect surge sent to the bulbs, LH or RH, depending which direction you wisk to turn. If 1 filament is broken, the circuit is incomplete, & no flash will occur. Usually you will get one light that stays on, & the front or rear missing lighting, is the one whichis the culpret.
Check for power at the turn signal switch. White wire comes from brake switch switch into the turn signal switch. The brake light switch is working because the high mount brake light is working..right? Do the turn signals work ok? if so, then the wiring is OK. The brake signal wires that come out of the turn signal switch are dark green(right) and yellow (left).
Rear lights are double filament bulbs one side for the lights other side for the brake/turn signals so it still may be a bulb. Do u have a test light or volt meter you can check to make sure u have power there when brakes or turn signals are activated. Or just try another bulb.

Thanks for using FixYa - a FixYa rating is appreciated.
I have a 2002 Chev Cavalier that had the same exact problem. I replaced the bulb harness (purchased from a chevy dealership for around $5) which was fairly easy to do. I have had zero problems with it since.
