Brake light/Blinker

Before I take it in, I am looking for any help on an issue. 2013 Patriot. When signaling to turn right we get a "chime" and then the blinker blinks 3x faster than normal. This only happens to the right side. I looked and the rear tail light/blinker are out o that side as well. Electrical issue I'm sure, but something anyone has experienced that I can fix without taking it in? Thanks for the help.

Hey BryanThu,
How long have you been having this issue? Does the right tail light/ blinker come on when locking or unlocking your vehicle using the key fob?

It just began a couple days ago. It does not flash when locking/unlocking. I was thinking it might have been the bulb and was going to get one. After you pointing out checking with the key fob, makes more sense that it may be the bulb. This now leads to the next question. I haven't looked at all but is changing the bulb on the Patriot easy enough to do? I have a Wrangler, the Patriot is my wife's so I don't/haven't tinkered with it at all. Thanks for the help.

There are instructional videos on YouTube. It's really very easy.

The ding is likely a bulb out warning chime, as is the fast flashing.

Two clips/rivets to pop out, then the tail light housing will pull free from the body.
