Default RE: turn signal acting up need help asap!

Tail Lights have two filaments in them.
One for the blinker and one for the lights.
The system is set up so a change inelectrical load will cause the blinker to blink at a rapid rate to let the driver know that a bulb is out.
Sometimes the bulb may look like it is working but the resistance has changed enough that the system will see it as a burned out bulb.
