Passenger blinker keeps failing. Replaced bulbs several times. Is it the circuit board at the tail light? All other lights work fine. I am speaking of the rear turn signal.

Did you ever test the bulbs or the circuits to the bulbs before replacing them? Circuit board failures are very common. One can usually verify if it is a citcuit board by tapping and/or twisting a little and making the bulb go on and off.
