Unfortunatly it is in your dimmer switch. You will need to replace it. It is fairly difficult..but if u choose to try yourself i will try to walk u thru.:)

I have a 81 chevy k10. My brake lights, tail lights and blinkers dont work in the rear. I checked the wiring and when I have the blinker on every wire shows its running of the blinkers. My dimmer switch...

When you check them, with say a test light and they work. It is because you have a good ground with the test light. Check and rerun ground wires if necessary On the back of the truck, check for ground straps from the frame to the bed..

I have a 1991 mazda 323 and the right front and rear blinker does not work however the leaft blinker does

When you turn on the right blinker does the indicator light come on? It could be a faulty turn signal switch. The turn signals are routed through the hazzard switch, sometimes you can switch on and off the hazzard switch several times and the turn signals could start working again...Hey it's worth a try..

Turning signals not working all the time

Sounds like the blinker relay. Is the emergency flasher switch on the dash above the radio ? If it is the blinkers relay is the same as the emergency relay. If the blinkers stop working pound on the emergency lights switch and if they start working then replace the emergency lights relay switch cause the blinkers is on the same relay as the emergency lights. My 2001 Grand Am does the same and I just hit the emergency lights switch and they start working again.

Blinkers work except when.......

Sounds like you have a ground problem on the lights.
I'm assuming that the front lights that don't work are the directionals.
You might want remove one then turn on the headlights and try a temporary ground wire to the black wire. If it works then either check your ground wire from the battery to the chassis or install a separate ground wire the the light assembly.
As far as blinking fast, make sure all your lights are working. If one bulb is out that could be the problem.
Replace the dimmer switch.
