    If I turn the driverside blinker on, it is fine, but when i turn the other side on, they both come on, but not as bright very dim. when I turn the headlights on I lose all rear lights? what the funk!

    I agree. Check your body ground from the battery, too. It may not be causing the tail light problem, but it may be causing problems that haven't yet reared their ugly head.

    OR

    Passenger side blinker fluid level is low. /forums/images/graemlins/ignore.gif

    To get to the tail light grounds, remove the tail light lenses, then the housings. Now you can see the ground wire on each side, attached to the body on the bottom of the opening. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
