dandewitt97 I had a problem earlier with the brake lights and head lights going out so i replaced all the bulbs and used the grease which fixed it, that was probably 2 weeks ago and ive driven the car everyday till this taillight problem started (like 4 days ago). so id think the bulbs should all be good.

POS YJ Check ALL of the bulbs. Usually, when your indicator blinks extra fast, you have a burnt out turn bulb which lessens the resistance that the flasher sees, and it will do that. If the filament is actually broken inside the bulb, it can make contact with the bulb base (ground), or with another filament in the bulb (short). Make sure that all of the connections are clean and put a dab of di-electric grease back in to prevent future corrosion. Electrical gremlins are no fun, but start with the easy consumable parts first. Let us know what you find.

dandewitt97 There isn't any trailer wiring. The two wiring causes I could think of would be 1) accidently closed the hardtop wiper chord in the door and some of the wires are exposed. I dont see how these could really be related but i figured it was worth mentioning. 2) I did some radio work recently that involved cutting some wires but i have triple checked everything that was involved.

Really weird turn signals? Delay?

My turn signals are acting strange. Ill be coming up to a turn, flip my turn signal on, it will blink continuously. Then I push the clutch in and it will stop blinking and just stay on. But then when I start pressing the brake, it will go back to blinking consistantly. Then when I put it into 1st gear it will stay lit.

Its not always that exact way. I just made up an example but its a combo of in or out of gear, pressing or not pressing the brake, clutch in or out. Im thinking its the delay and the pressure change is throwing the timing off? Any other ideas?

On top of that (whole new problem) the left turn signal blinks extra fast on the dashboard, when i check the left turn signal is very faint in the back. I replaced the bulb and the fuse. The brake lights are equally as strong and it is the same blub and a single wire running to the light.
