    Angry 1994 Deville tail light wires crossed?

    I am having trouble with my tail lights. when my turn signals are on the bulbs will light up the proper filament on one bulb, but the other bulb will light up the wrong filament and they blink fast. is it possible that there are wires crossed? and when the headlights or park lights are on they seem to act normal? wtf

    Common for a corroded socket. You are seeing feed back into another socket. Blinking fast is an indicator of a poor ground or corroded bulb. With the lights off and the 4 way flasher on, walk the car to determine which bulb is either dim or not working. Investigate that bulb and that socket. You can buy a new socket from most parts store in the HELP line of products.
