When I turn on my left turn signal they flash fast. Right turn signal works fine as do emergency flashers. I've inspected and replaced the front and back left turn signal bulbs. I did notice that when I raise the hood, as soon as the underhood light comes on the front left turn signal glows faintly. I imagine there's a short somewhere but I'm not sure where to begin looking. Any ideas?
Thanks

Check ground wire for the parking light in left front it's back feeding so that is normally a ground it should be a black wire.

The parking light in front is the same as the front turn signal. The ground wire looks fine as far as I can trace it, but it quickly goes where I can't follow it anymore. Do you know where the ground goes?

It's on the left front fender shield.
