signal and marker lights.. help please

Hey all,



My drivers side signal light blinks quit fast compaired to my passenger side. I have also noticed that drivers side front marker light also flashes, but not bright, when the signal is on when the passenger side does not.



I did some research and confirmed on this board that I must have a blub burnt out. So I replaced all the marker bulbs. I used the same blub for the rear marker lights as I did the front because i did not have a part number for the rear lights. I also replaced a back up light.



Good news, the back up light works.

Good news, the front marker lights come one now when the lights are on.

Bad news, the drivers side signal is still way to fast

Bad news, the drivers side marker still blinks as well, but not very bright

Bad news, the rear marker lights don't come on.



Suggestions?



Signal light:

My thought is a bad ground for the drivers side signal light. I suspect it is around the front somewhere since the marker light tries to blink. Any idea where that drivers side turn light grounds?



Rear Marker:

My thought is that there is no current at all as both sides don't come on. I have no problems with any of the other lights.



Any and all advice is greatly appreciated.

Thanks.
