Turn signal wiring problem

The drivers side rear turn signal doesn't operate as well as the brake light. Reverse is good.

While in the process of tracing wires, passenger side quit working altogether and now the reverse lights on drivers side has quit working. When operating the turn signals to check for operation the drivers side dash indicator works with the front light winking and blinking. The passenger side is steady. I have verified the fuses are in good shape.

Do I have 2 issues here or is this just one large one. I am at a loss of what to do outside of ripping out all the wires and running fresh wires.

Any help would be appreciated

you have a ground issue. Clean the mounting studs and the tub where they mount on the rear lamps.

Thank you. Cleaning where it mounted fixed the drivers side. Doing a full bulb check, the passenger front running light was out and after replacing it, all lights are operating as they should
