3 Answers


Burned out bulb, bad socket, bad grounds bad turn signal switch, just to name a few problems you could have.


Changed bulb already. Front signal works. Lights work. What is the best place to start for looking for a short?


As you are not blowing a fuse you don't have a short, more like a open circuit. I would start with the turn signal switch, make sure it is switching in and out of cancel brake mode when it is used, if that checks out then you will have to start from the switch and check the wiring all the way back until you find the break in the wiring.
