What is going on?

Asked by Sep 03, 2016 at 09:11 PM about the 2013 Kia Forte EX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have replaced the blinker as is started
blinking rapidly. I replaced it 4 times within
a month before looking for further answers.
After replacing the bulb, it will work for
about a week. If I take the bulb out, grease
it and put it back, it'll work for a few days.
It only does it on the passanger side. I had
it looked at today, the fuse isn't blown, no
other lights are out, just the blinker... It
seems to stop working when I hit bumps.
The only way it'll blink again(for a day or
two), is if I take the bulb out and put a new
one in or just put the same one back in.
Does this sound like a short? Do I maybe
need a new headlight?
