The rapid flashing occurs because of the light problem. If the 20A PARK LP fuse in the underhood fuse block is OK, the front marker lamps and the park lights should turn on when you set the headlamp switch to PARK. If the 10A T/SIG fuse in the instrument panel fuse block is OK, and the ignition switch is on, moving the turn signal multi-function switch to signal a right or left turn should cause the turn signals to flash. If this doesn't happen, check for a missing ground connection to the socket you replaced and check to be sure the replacement lamp was not forced into the socket backwards (it happens).
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.)
You will need a big C clamp and a 21 mm socket.
Remove the wheel.
Use the C clamp to compress the front brake piston:
Just put the screw side of the c clamp on the outside brake pad and the frame part of the c clamp on the back of the caliper and turn the c clamp in until it won't compress further. You don't have to over-do it. Don't force it and don't do this with the back brakes...they require a tool that rotates the piston as it compresses... Hint: rent it from auto zone for free.
Once the piston is compressed, use the 21mm socket to remove the two caliper bolts and then tie up the caliper so it doesn't hang down in the way and stress the brake lines.
Then you need to bang on the rotor with a mallet until you free it and it will come off.
You may need to hammer it pretty hard.
Assemble in reverse.
Check that headlamp switch (11654) is in the off position.
Lift hood (16612).
Release latch and swing filler panel to left or right.
Remove electrical connector from headlamp bulb by grasping wires firmly and snapping connector rearward.
Remove headlamp bulb retainer (13N019) by rotating counterclockwise (when viewed from rear) about one-eighth turn and sliding ring off plastic base. Keep headlamp bulb retainer as it may be used again to retain new headlamp bulb.
Carefully remove headlamp bulb from socket by gently pulling straight backward out of socket. Do not rotate headlamp bulb during removal.
Headlamp Assembly, Explorer Removal and Installation
Remove turn/park lamp attaching screws (2) and pull assembly away from body. Remove bulb sockets from housing and remove lamp assembly. Repeat on opposite side of vehicle.
With turn/park lamp assembly removed, screw attaching grille to front fender flange is accessible. Remove grille attaching screw. Repeat on opposite side of vehicle.
Remove attaching screws (4) located across top of grille.
Grip lower edge of grille and pull outward to disengage from retaining clips. Remove grille.
Using needle-nose pliers, compress barbs on headlamp housing retainer. With barbs compressed, pull forward on housing just enough to disengage from retainer. Repeat on opposite side of headlamp housing.
Turn headlamp housing as necessary and pull forward to disengage from headlamp aiming ball socket.
Disconnect wiring from headlamp bulb socket.
If replacing headlamp housing, remove retaining collar and bulb.
For installation, follow removal procedures in reverse order. Make sure to check headlamp aim.
Way 1) YOU NEED A SKINNY SHAFTED STAR SCREWDRIVER. This is how the manual describes it: Unscrew the 2 star screws holding the parking light housing on. One is on top, the other is between the parking light and the turn signal. This second screw can be very difficult to get to because the parking light and turn signal housing are very close. After the parking light housing is off, you can unscrew the turn signal housing. The screws should be located on top of the housing, underneath the parking light housing.
Way 2) This is the way I did mine: First, you have to take the headlight housing off. It should be pretty easy to pop off if you pry it the right way. It is held on by 1 square clip and 2 ball and socket clips. There is a small risk of breaking the ball and socket clips, as getting the headlamp housing off does require a little force, so be careful. You may want to take the headlight bulb out first, but isn't necessary. (Removing the right side bulb may require removing the battery) Once the headlamp housing is off, the turn signal bulbs should be very easy to get to.
To remove the bulb, simply turn the bulb socket and it will come out.
For the rear turn signal:
Open the lift gate.
There are 3 hex screws that hold each rear light assembly on. I'd recommend a hex screwdriver, as a socket wrench or box wrench would be very hard to use on the screws. Once the hex screws are off, just tug on the light assembly and it will come off. The bulbs are very easy to get to. The turn signal is the yellow one.
my jeep grand cherokee has had this same problem, as have many i've seen on the road. the tail light socket has contacts that provide the electrical connection. sometimes the contacts get weak and do not make good contact causing lights not to work. try removing the socket and pulling contacts up a little or also putting a small piece of aluminum foil around the contact will work.
