I have a 1997 and im having problems with no rear blinkers the fronts work. I have checked the fuses they are fine the only thing i can think of checking is the wiring from the front to the back was wondering if anyone else has had this problem and can help me figure it out,also the passenger side brake light doesn't work.
Thanks

Do you have a trailer hitch ?
If you do it maybe a problem with the way the taillight converter was hooked up may be acting up or it could be as simple as the bulbs crapping out

Are you the original owner? Is it possible it had a hitch at one time?

I would dig around in the back to see if there are any trailer hitch wiring remains? or poorly spliced wires.
