EXTERIOR LIGHTING: TURN SIGNAL

3/11/2006 - KENNESAW, GA
EACH REAR TAIL LIGHT ASSEMBLY CIRCUIT BOARD HAD TO BE REPLACED. THESE OCCURRED AT DIFFERENT TIMES (APPROXIMATELY 6 MONTHS APART). NOW, ABOUT A YEAR LATER, THE RIGHT REAR NEEDS TO BE REPLACED AGAIN. THIS WAS FOUND DUE TO THE BLINKER AND BRAKE LIGHT FAILING, SO I SWITCHED THE BULB FROM THE OTHER SIDE, WITH THE EXACT SAME RESULTS, SO I KNOW IT IS THE CIRCUIT AND NOT A BAD BULB.
