RIGHT TAIL LIGHTS AND TURN SIGNAL

1987 Volvo 240

Electrical problem
1987 Volvo 240 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 260, 00 miles

Started having problem with tail light and turn signal not working sometimes. Bulb indicator light is on when you brake or have head lamps on. Now the tail lights and signal fail all the time. Rapid blinking on dashboard when
right turn signal is turned on but no lights on in the rear of the car (right side only). Checked bulbs and fuses, they look to be okay. Could it be a relay switch?
Any suggestions? Thanks.

See this alot short in tail light assembly. Get an OHM meter start checking wiring and circuit. With assembly unpluged operate turn signal should stop blinking fast cause of short that make flasher go into snizzlefrits.
