    I have the same problem, but it's my right rear brake and signal light. I replaced the bulb, because it was the most likely cause; however, it didn't fix it.

    what? it's not a quick fix, I have the same problem with my left turn signal and left break light. I check the fuse and replace both taillights. And 2 days later it's doing it again! I may have to replace the flasher relay and both turn signal bulbs in the front. If this dont work I just dont freakin know. what else to do. I have a Haynes repair book #30034 chapter 12 sec 7.

    Same problem. I was thinking it was the bulb when I noticed turn signal didn't work, but after seeing the brake light not working also I don't know. Is it all the same bulb?

Both of you have a bad ground. Ground points are under the car, close to the tail lights.

My neon was doing the same thing. the left turn signal and brake light in back went off. then it went to other side and flasher started going really fast. I have replaced brake light switch, bulbs and turn signal flasher. I still have no brake lights or turn signals in back. front ones are working. the flasher is normal speed now but no turn signal. I'm at my wits end. If you find a remedy, let me know..

Left bleaker and break light not working. Turn signal works bleaks faster than right side.

Has the vehicle been in an accident on the left rear side. First check the bulb to be sure it is not defective, trade it out with the side that works properly to test. If the bulb works well then My thought are you may have a shorted wire. The turn signal flasher works by heat build up within the flasher the heat is caused by the load of the bulbs, the load heats the metal spring causing it to open the circuit then as quickly as it cools down the circuit closes again lighting the bulbs.
There is also a possibility of a defect in the turn signal mechanism on the steering column. The turn signal switch on many models does three different things on many models that use the same bulb element / or bulb for brake and turn on rear of vehicle. It controls the circuit for brake light by sending power both left and right side rear when turn signal is in neutral position then when turn signal is in left turn the switch cancels brake light power to left side rear and supplies flasher power to left side while maintaining brake light supply to the right side rear, and so on opposite when the right turn is chosen on turn signal switch. The turn signal indicators on the dash normally run off the same circuit as front turn signal bulb only which is also controlled by turn signal switch. Front has turn signals but no brake light.
I think there is an additional load on the left side rear turn circuit and it could be either a wire that is shorted or the turn signal switch if the same bulb element is used for both functions.
Often times if trailer lighting is connected the flasher will also blink a little faster because of the extra load of additional bulbs.

Tail lights not working

ck fuse for rear taillights tis under the dash lower left of steering wheel. or if you still have the manual look in there under fuses.
also look for a bad ground but i doubt that.. if it's both rear out.
fast flashing well here's a chart with all sorts of info.
Problem What To Do Turn signals light, but do not flash Replace the flasher No turn signals light on either side Check the fuse. Replace if defective.
Check the flasher by substitution.
Check for open circuit, short circuit or poor ground. Both turn signals on one side don't work Check for bad bulbs.
Check for bad ground In both housings. One turn signal light on one side doesn't work Check and/or replace bulb.
Check for corrosion in socket. Clean contacts.
Check for poor ground at socket. Turn signal flashes too fast or too slow Check any bulb on the side flashing too fast. A heavy-duty bulb is probably installed In place of a regular bulb
Check the bulb flashing too slow. A standard bulb was probably installed in place of a heavy-duty bulb
Check for loose connections or corrosion at the bulb socket Indicator lights don't work in either direction Check If the turn signals are working
Check the dash indicator lights
Check the flasher by substitution One Indicator light doesn't light On systems with 1 dash indicator:
- See if the lights work on the same side. Often the filaments have been reversed In systems combining stoplights with taillights and turn signals
- Check the flasher by substitution On systems with 2 Indicators:
- Check the bulbs on the same side
- Check the indicator light bulb
- Check the flasher by substitution
hope this helps. may want to print for future reference. :)
hope this helps.

because of no light flasher on left side the front one will go faster .maybe the left rear light is burn. and brake lights are control by the brake switch on brake pedal hardware, might be unadjust

95 dodge neon brake lights and rear turn signal will not work,

The fast blinking is usually a bulb burned out. Replace the rear bulbs. If this is not the problem , it may be a ground issue, but it really does sound like a bulb issue. Also inspect the light socket while you are there. Look for any bad corrosion Good luck

Rear turn signal does not work

If the indicators on the dash are staying lit all the time, it is because you likely have a bad ground to one of your running lights, causing the running lights to ground through the turn signal circuits. This is often caused by either a bad socket assembly at one of the bulbs or an incorrect bulb is installed in one of the sockets. You need to check FRONT and REAR lights to see which one is not working correctly. Also check the running lights and marker lights on BOTH sides of the vehicle. There will be SOMETHING that will not look the same from one side to the other if the left side is working correctly and the right side is not. Please keep in mind that you cannot use the right REAR turn signal without also using the right FRONT turn signal. The problem could be at EITHER end.

99 Chevy Tahoe... Rear turn signals, brake lights, and hazards

I had this problem, and to be honest, it happened to the left side about a week's the board that the bulbs plug's a very common problem with this model. So popular that you can normally get the socket board off the shelf at a parts store! it's extremely simple to replace, and I replaced all the bulbs at the same time!

1998 Lincoln Town Car: No turn signals, 4 way flash, brake lights

If only your brake light in middle of rear window works then your other bulbs are bad. If brake lights all work in the back than bulbs are good. If you put turn signal on right or left and the bulbs light in front and back then you need to change multifunction light control box under dash. My understanding is it cost $600 new. So I would try used.
