Most of the lamps and lenses shown on this page can be installed in 5-15 minutes without the need of any special tools. If you are having problems with a rapidly flashing turn signal flasher, the most common cause is a burnt out bulb or corroded wire connection.

Check and clean the bulb socket, if the problem persists, then it's most likely a corroded or broken ground wire. While we're on the subject of checking for bulb function, here's a handy little tip for checking brake light light function by yourself. Cut an old broom handle or other suitable scrap into an 18" length that can be used asa  wedge between the seat cushion and brake pedal to hold the brake lights on while you check function or make repairs.

Adjust seat as necessary for brake light activation.
