The other day I turned my right turn signal on and it started blinking very rapidly on the console guage which is usually the sign of a bad bulb. I checked the bulb, it looked good. Replaced it anyway. Still blinks twice as fast as left side.
Right rear turn signal and brake light not working.
Bulbs are good.
Found a fuse for the turn signal and one for the brake - both looked good.

I'm stumped. Any ideas?

I replaced the flasher module yesterday. Problem still exists.
No right rear turn signal, no right rear brake light.

I went ahead and replaced the main bulb even though it looked good, and for good measure I also replaced the 194 side marker bulb as well.

Tried to do a volt test at the taillight connection, power doesn't seem to be getting to the lamps. Are there any other fuses to check?

Any suggestions?

Get out your manual and go to the schematics. Get a multi-meter and check for Continuity along the entire wire path. Shouldn't take but 5 minutes. You will be able to find a break in the wire or maybe a short.
If you say the fuse is good then most likely you have a bad connection or broke wire somewhere. Inspect it all. Its a very simple system and you should be able to find the problem in no time.

Just to follow up for posterity:
Turns out it was the tail light socket had gone bad.

Thx for the help and troubleshooting efforts. Very Happy
