    you guys will know this right away.
    for me it was too simple! i missed it first time.
    my right rear lights acted funny under different conditions.hard to describe. like turn signal on lower and upper lights would alternate.backup sometime was weak but on. brake on but not always.
    im certain i once checked the three grounds and found them connected, and grounded?
    i let it go till a friend said my brake light was out. it was.
    i dug in again and as b4 i cliped in a ground from a good point. this time it fixed it!!
    i stripped a short section of each ground wire and soldered a new wire to all three and screwed it to a shiny new spot . my FIRST ever ground problem!
    to be sure i repeated the new ground wire on the left side. i feel good and safe from tickets now.
    intermittent ground inside rear fender?? dont know where they ended up grounded?
    new ground is solid and visible.
