Try changing the bulb. If that doesn't work, then your going to have to rewire or replace the socket. You can get a replacement at any parts store, or you should be able to get one from the dealership if you want OEM. If the bulb socket is part of the tail light housing then your best bet is to get one from a salvage yard unless you want to spend the money for a new one.

Left bleaker and break light not working. Turn signal works bleaks faster than right side.


Has the vehicle been in an accident on the left rear side. First check the bulb to be sure it is not defective, trade it out with the side that works properly to test. If the bulb works well then My thought are you may have a shorted wire. The turn signal flasher works by heat build up within the flasher the heat is caused by the load of the bulbs, the load heats the metal spring causing it to open the circuit then as quickly as it cools down the circuit closes again lighting the bulbs.
There is also a possibility of a defect in the turn signal mechanism on the steering column. The turn signal switch on many models does three different things on many models that use the same bulb element / or bulb for brake and turn on rear of vehicle. It controls the circuit for brake light by sending power both left and right side rear when turn signal is in neutral position then when turn signal is in left turn the switch cancels brake light power to left side rear and supplies flasher power to left side while maintaining brake light supply to the right side rear, and so on opposite when the right turn is chosen on turn signal switch. The turn signal indicators on the dash normally run off the same circuit as front turn signal bulb only which is also controlled by turn signal switch. Front has turn signals but no brake light.
I think there is an additional load on the left side rear turn circuit and it could be either a wire that is shorted or the turn signal switch if the same bulb element is used for both functions.
Often times if trailer lighting is connected the flasher will also blink a little faster because of the extra load of additional bulbs.

Right turn signal possible short


the wire is shorted.

trailer hitch hack job.

collision damage to rear.? wrecked the harness.



why would the flasher be bad, if left side front and rear works perfectly

we use a 15amp circuit breaker to replace the flasher fuse.

then find the short, (beaker keeps popping) when right turns are selected.

is this car under warranty?

did some one put in an illegal larger fuse in this circuit? dont

its a simple shorted line

we have a thing (real edison like) called an ammeter

we can measure the actual short, all look here its 15amps

just as the breaker trips, bingo city

then all we do is start pulling all inline connectors to find the section that is shorted, front or rear.



does that help?:

2012 Camaro: Why does the left rear turn light keep going out? I have had to replace it twice now. I have never had to replace a turn signal in any other cars I have owned.


You may be just unlucky with this particular light. Sometimes we will "fix" something and the replacement part may have had a flaw which makes it confusing. Anyone repairing usually will do troubleshooting to eliminate systematically what is not causing the problem and usually in pursuing the cheapest possible cause to the worst case senario. In this case, bad bulb, to a major short in the wiring harness (probably not the later). To find out you should take your vehicle in to your dealer, a highly respected mechanic or to an electrician that specializes in auto electronics. The wiring to your taillight may have a short in it which could cause overheating of the filament. The light going off and on consistently can cause the filament to break. Your dealer or electrical expert should be able to check the impedance (best to know specs but could check with the other taillight to see if they are the same)... Hope this helps you... cmilton111

Rear turn signal does not work


If the indicators on the dash are staying lit all the time, it is because you likely have a bad ground to one of your running lights, causing the running lights to ground through the turn signal circuits. This is often caused by either a bad socket assembly at one of the bulbs or an incorrect bulb is installed in one of the sockets. You need to check FRONT and REAR lights to see which one is not working correctly. Also check the running lights and marker lights on BOTH sides of the vehicle. There will be SOMETHING that will not look the same from one side to the other if the left side is working correctly and the right side is not. Please keep in mind that you cannot use the right REAR turn signal without also using the right FRONT turn signal. The problem could be at EITHER end.

My right rear turn signal stays solid, won't blink, in the vehicle the right blinker light blinks excessively fast, I have a 1999 surburban


Sounds like a bad ground to me, although i am no expert.
i would be checkinh all connections and take it from there, a little wd40 might just solve it short term.

1996 chevy 1500 truck when i turn left turn signal on back up lights come on and when i turn the right turn signal on the emergency blinkers come on. The front blinkers work correct.


Hello: There are two things that could be dausing this: One is the board that holds the bulbs in the tail light assembly, it could be shorted internally. The other thing is on the rear right fender on the inside there is a electrical distribution box for the rear lights it also could be internally shorted, also the connectors to that box could be corroded and causing your problem. Hope this helps.

Why would the brake lights stay stuck on in a 1992 toyota when the headlights or just the parking lights are turned on but work properly when no lights are turned on?


The most likely causes are either a short or a bad earth/ground in one of the rear light clusters.
Remove the bulbs and check to make sure the bulb holder and contacts are clean and not shorting out with verdigree, also check the earth/ground to chassis connections on the back light clusters.
A bad earth connection in a lighting circuit on a car can cause all sorts of weird and wonderful symptoms, the bulb will look everywhere for an earth just to make itself work.
How many times have you been following a car, it has indicated to turn and then when the brake lights come on the back has lit up like a christmas tree?, that is a sure indication of an earth/ground fault.

Both rear turn signal lights flash


I did 15a and electrical for over 30 for chevrolet and seen some pretty weird stuff.To me you still have a ground problem.your idea of checking the brake light switch is a good start.both rear lamps flashing to me means the hazards are shorting across the turn and brake light circuits,because hazards stop flashing when brakes are applied.The brakes light switches in the 90's were really weird because they also incorporated the abs system.Good luck,let me know what happens.Thanks
