    Left rear signal won\'t work and it\'s not the bulb.

    The other day when I went to turn left, I turned on my signal and it was clicking super fast. Ah ha, I thought, "I have a burned out bulb." I pulled out the rear light assembly in my 1997 Chevy Tahoe and didn't think I could see anything wrong with the bulb but switched it anyway. It didn't work. What should I look at or for to try to fix this? I hate not having turn signals.

    P.O'ed,

    Rod

    Turn on the blinker and check for power at the socket. Sockets are a common failure item.

    The taillight boards on your truck are noted for going out. They can be gotten at most aftermarket parts stores now. /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif /forums/images/graemlins/crewcab.gif
