I would say the switch. Same issue mine is having now but also affecting the headlights


Well my other rear blinker and brake lights have recently gone out as well and I've just replaced the bulbs, but the bulbs didn't necessarily look burned out. Even my rear pass speaker has been out for quite some time too.

Sounds like ground issues. Check for corrosion at the connectors or replace em
