you need to add a quart of blinker fluid you will find your resevor next to your blinkerMake sure you have the right bulb. And make sure the bulb is in the socket correctly. I believe the bulb is a 2057 (not positive), but anyway the bulb has two offset teats if this is the bulb I think it is. If you put it in backwards, I believe you can have this problem.

this is a common problem with all 4th gen, F-Bodies, the problem is the one of your taillight sockets has shorted out.

Normally the Black wire of the three wires which is the ground wire. Some can be fixed most can't it is inside the socket. Best bet is to find a 93-97 f-body,(camero, firebird) in a junkyard and cut the sockets out, and splice and replace one at a time til you find the bad one.

You can test for a bad one if you have an ohm meter. Inside the socket there are 3 metal strips, 2 in the bottom, 1 around the inside, check to see if the ground(black wire) is 0 ohms from more than 1 of the strips, if 2 strips show 0 ohms, that socket is toast.

Make sure when you cut the wires on the junkyard sockets you have at least 4-5 inches of wire. The more the better.

I am not sure what all of the symptoms are, but if your turn signals work at times, or flash rapidly at times, the problem may be just like the one I had with my 1999 Century. I found after gaining access to the dash thru the removable panel on the driver's side, that the flasher assembly was bouncing around inside the dash compartment. I could recreate the symptoms every time I moved the flasher assembly and attached wires. I secured the flasher to the inside of the panel using a zip-tie, and have not had a problem since. I could not believe how easy it was to fix, after spending hours checking all the bulbs and sockets and wiring.
