my fiance's 2010 grand cherokee

It all started with a right rear brake light out and then the rear signals went. Now the front signals still work however they flash faster than normal indicating a bad relay maybe? I'm okay with troubleshooting mechanical but electrical I have a lot to learn. Any advice or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Cheers

When one light is out the others will blink faster. If changing the bulb doesn't work check the ground of the failing signal.

Right on thanks...I was hoping that too...do I need a diagnostic for ground faults or just a visual inspection and where are the ground wires found?

visual should do the trick really. if it's in a place you can't see easily, then you might have to use a meter to check it.

So the ground can be seen near the lens where the wire harness ends or trace it back...I'm not sure how to visually check for ground faults as far as where to look...I can easily get a diagnostic at the local parts store...probably the most accurate method I assume?

Trace the wire back. You could just remove the screw, use sandpaper to shine up the connection on he body and connector.
