Do you have a trailer plug? if so disconnect from the factory harness and see if that helps.

Rapid flashing indicates a loss of load, so there must be a broken circuit somewhere, it could be a pushed out connector or a broken wire that is still covered by insulation, I would suggest starting at the turn signal switch and head back.

thanks to both of you for your response. I Unplugged the trailer harness and it did not help as such, but while fooling with iut, the turn signal started working intermittently, so I started from the light and worked back to the front and found the main front to rear harness connector had a broken retainer clip and was backed out just enough to make the left light not work!! tied and taped the connector tightly together and it works again!! woo hoo!! so thanks again for the suggestions, gave me the starting point I needed to solve the issue.
