Default Blinker/ tail light problems

so my right blinker started to blink really fast, i get out of the car to check and sure enough the one all the way on the right was not blinking only the one in the middle was blinking so i figured a bulb was blown, i went to the store to pick up a replacement. when i took off the tail light assembly i noticed the bulbs were not blown but replaced them anyways. now both of them dont blink or light up brighter when i step on the brakes, they do however come on when i turn on the lights. any one know what the problem could be?

Did you get the right bulbs - i.e. do they have a major and minor filament? When you turn on the turn signal do the signal indicators on the dash still light up?

p.s. Love the sig!

Hey, i just got the same problem this morning. The right blinker was going a lot quicker. I thought it was because of the Diablosport Predator.

Is it because the bulb went out or the wiring?

I was thinking of getting sequential tailights, would that solve the problem while getting a cool look at the same time...kill two birds with a giant rock?

Thanks,
-Jun-

I agree, check to make sure you have the correct bulbs!

my bulb was out for like 2 days(was also blinking fast), took it to dealer under warranty, and the bulb started working again(they never even replaced it) no problems since.

Sometimes resolving issues is all about having good karma
