Question: my rear turn signals aren't working. I I checked the Turn

my rear turn signals aren't working. I I checked the Turn Signal fuse (#6) & replaced even though it seemed fine. That didn't help.
Out of the 3 bulbs in the rear tail light only the top ones are not working at all. I replaced both but that hasn't helped.
Front turn signals work but click very fast instead of the normal slow click.
What do I do???

Your car probably isn't old enough for this to be an issue, but check the sockets for any dirt or corrosion.

Next check the sockets for power (sounds like there is none).

Start tracing the wiring back to the power source. There has to be a bad connection or short somewhere for the problem to occur as you are describing.

Double check that the bulbs are indeed all good, and the correct type. Check the connections and that everything is plugged in properly.
