another problem.....

The front right blinker blinks too fast and the rear right stop light doesnt work at all. I checked the bulbs in the rear right and they seem fine. Could this be a short somewhere? where should i check?

Usually when it blinks too fast it is because the other bulb is burnt out. Check both bulbs and the connections first.

other bulb as in which one? the other side of the car? because all the bulbs work except the right rear and those bulbs look new.

It could be low on blinker fluid. Check your fluid before changing bulbs.
