    Hi, Paul I would really love to help you with your bike question but due to the magnitude of yesterday's solar flare the batteries in my crystal ball are dead and my mental telepathy headset circuitry was melted.

Instead of being a H-D ick like you know who I would suggest that you start by checking your bulbs for resistance. Sometimes they look okay but the thin filament inside may be broken. If the front turn signals work, then your rear signals should work, so your push button and Flasher is okay. Check the wiring at the bulbs for voltage. Test the bulbs as you depress the turn signal button. Use the metal of the bulbs base for ground and check the other wire for voltage, if there is no voltage, you may have a bad ground at the base so attach the ground to the batteries ground. Still no voltage? Most likely there is an issue with the wiring towards the rear where the harness connects the positive line from the Flasher. If there is some voltage at the bulbs (assuming your battery is fully charged) then be sure to check for corrosion on the inside of the turn signals base and also where the ground wire terminates at the frame. Next, locate the wiring harness lighting circuit for voltage. There may be a break in the line leading to the bulb. There are 12 volt 'wiggies' that will help you locate a break in an electrical line.

What would cause the blinker to blink very fast and the left rear blinker doesn't work.


You obviously have a bad connection somewhere in the taillight. Some trucks it is a common problem and the taillight circuit board is the problem.

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.

Using a test light check to see if there is power to the wire at the plug where the bulb is for the blinker. if so the socket is bad. if not check to see if the light assembly is working for ex. the parking lights or the brake light ect If those lights dont work then check the fuse for the right rear tail light. Hope this helps.
