Yes - the fast flashing is a warning that a bulb is burned out. Change the bulb (be careful to put it in the same as the old one as it probably is 2 bulbs in one , parking and turn/stop) and you should be fine.
Replace the burned out bulb. It is flashing fast to alert you that bulb is burnt out. Turn on the side that works properly & note all bulbs flashing in front, rear & side. Most likely there is at least 1 burnt out on the other side.
Check the bulb socket for a burnt or a shorted condition. Remove bulb and try another bulb, if it does it again then you have a short in the socket or wiring to bulb. Turn on the 4 way flashers and see what it will do. If it continues then look for any burnt wire connector or wireing to bulb. Check the wiring behind the light for any metal that has cut into the wiring insulation. Hope this will help you.
Hello Durant. Your rear signal lamps are turned on by the body control module (BCM). You could have some broken wires from the BCM to the rear signals or the BCM isn't providing power to them. The BCM must be getting a signal input because the front ones are functional. If you want to trace the wires here are the colors you are looking for. Left rear wire is white/dark green. Right rear wire is white/brown. You may need to have your BCM scanned to verify. If you would like more information to solve this yourself ask me.
I believe this car has a bulb with two fillaments for side and brake lights, it is unlikely that they are both burnt out at the same time but possible. It is more likely that the bulb holder or a ground connection is rusted or loose. The fuse generally covers all rear lights.
What your describing sounds like incorrect bulb positioning. If the socket is not located correctly then water can enter the light housing and blow the bulb, sometimes in pieces. This is the only condition that a bulb blows to pieces, when a hot bulb meets water. If needed remove the entire lamp assembly to make sure it is properly located in the socket. Good luck.
Usually this is caused by a burnt and melted bulb socket (look inside the socket at the bulb contacts), you have to replace it with a new-revised bulb socket, which entails cutting the wiring harness and splicing a new socket. This is a factory deffect which GM refuses to acknowledge.
