I was wondering if anyone knew which bulb was for the reverse light, brake light, and turn signal. I saw there was a top middle and bottom bulb back there when I took off the cover, but did not know which was which since I had no help to look.

There are no reverse lights in the tail lights. They are 1157 bulbs - which have two elements. The first element is the parking/driving element which is low level light and on whenever the parking light or head lights are on. The second is a high level light, which activates when you depress the brake. The reverse lights are the horizontal lights next to the license plate.

Thank you. I was wondering because I pulled out the bottom lights on both side of the tail lights cause I had one out so I replaced both. Now when I turn on the turn signal the right turn signal blinks normal while the left side blinks twice as fast. I used 2057 bulbs. Any idea why the left turn signal blinks twice as fast since replacing them both?

Blinking twice as fast because they are drawing more current. If you want to keep those bulbs, get an electronic "trailer" flasher. Any parts store will have them.

What would be the correct bulb for the tail light turn signals to get it back to normal speed cause the book said 2057? If I also left the 2057 bulb in and it continues to draw more current will that hurt anything?
