2001 Toyota Avalon - Rear signals

2001 Toyota Avalon - The left turn signal started flashing rapidly. The left rear turn light and brake light were not working; backup light was OK.
To troubleshoot, I replaced the 3 left side bulbs with the right side bulbs but the problem continues.

Check the front lights. Usually if i flashes fast it indicate a bulb is out on that side.

No rear brake lights and rear turn signals not working either front turn signals blink rapidly 2001 chevy HHR all fuses good all bulbs good no power to rear sockets 3rd level brake light works


Your front signals flash rapidly because your rear ones aren't working and that is normal and shows that a bulb in the circuit is out. At least that means the problem is not with the operation of the signal....good. Also your 3rd brake light works which shows the brake switch is working. Again...good.
Everything so far points towards your rear light clusters being at fault, although both at the same time is somewhat unusual.
You don't mention rear lights that come on with headlights or the reverse and fog lights. If nothing is working I would check the earth/grounds and the connection blocks that carry the power to the light clusters, but again both at the same time being faulty is suspicious and if the reverse, fog etc is working then why not the others?
I don't know about your model, but is there a separate fuse for the rear lights that are out? Probably not but worth a check.
Have you recently had something changed on the vehicle, or inspection work done? Maybe wires/connectors/grounds etc have been damaged or disconnected/reconnected wrongly in that area.
Try running a live directly to the cluster to see if that makes anything work as it may show a circuit break as the problem.
Sorry I can't be of more help.

I have sourced out all fuses and bulbs, yet continue to have a rapid right turn signal. I don't know where else to look. help?


replace the right rear bulb. the quick flashing indicates a bad bulb. it could be a wiring problem to the rear for the signal light that you will have to check out starting at the socket and working forward.

My left turn signal flashes rapidly after applying the break


Check your bulbs sound like one is burnt out, or it is not properly grounded. Good luck.

My signal lights in my dash both light up when i apply the breaks and only works when i let go of the breaks


Usually this is a short in one of the sockets that holds the bulb, your brake lights are back feeding power causing your turn indicators to glow on dash when you hit the brakes and will stop the turn signal from flashing when you step on the brake pedal also. Start with sockets on rear and look for any shorted or blackened socket ends.

Sounds like a burnt out bulb, that fast blink is to tell you a bulb needs replaced.

Rear lights work when turned on. No brake lights or rear turn signals. Front turn signals flash more rapidly. Replaced both rear bulbs with no change


if you're getting a more rapid flash in the front you have a possible blown relay to the back. Check fuses first and see if those are out.
