Right and lest turn signals blink normal 3 times then turn to rapid blinking. Receive message that rear turn signal lamp out.
Cannot replace bulbs. They seem to be okay.

Hi, the bulbs themselves may be ok, however the electrical contacts in the bulb holder may be corroded. It's worth giving them a clean. Other than that, it would just be eliminating other possibilities such as; broken indicator fuses/relays, another bulb blown somewhere, or the battery running low can bring up all sorts of issues!

The blubs/LEDs are good. The only bulb that can be replaced has nothing to do with the turn signals. The brake/turn signal lights are sealed inside the tail light assembly, and can't be replaced. There are only 2 plugs on the tail light assembly, one plug is for a small bulb that has nothing to do with the turn signals, the other plug goes to wiring internal to the tail light assembly for the turn signal/brakes. Both left and right turn signals went bad at the same time which makes it hard to believe that the problem is the turn signal connectors inside the assemblies. Both sides would have to go bad simultaneously.

You can just put an LED light bulb there. The process of replacing the lamp is quite complicated. If you do not know how to do it correctly, it is best to seek professional help. I recently decided to install https://www.amazon.com/Flagpole-Energy-Battery-Illumunation-Vont/dp/B00YBDA7DC/. I thought it would be easy, but it turned out to be much more complicated. I spent a lot of time and decided to seek help from specialists. Moreover, I had some problems, and I am glad that I asked for help. My neighbor once decided to do the same thing on his own, and fire almost happened...
