Ok I checked all connections under the hood in the fuse

Customer Question

Ok I checked all connections under the hood in the fuse panel, and all were good . The fuses for the rear clearance lights was good, and I didn't find any bare wires going through the firewall. However they are still being intermittent. Could the wiring to the marker lights to make them turn signals have something to do with it ?
Because now the left rear marker goes off, and stays off sometimes and still flickers.

O.k.,yes I did see that after reviewing the last question here.

Just to be sure again here which lights are flickering and which are not working properly?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
The rear left marker light is the one flickering, and the rear clearance lights work intermittently. They stay more than stay on.

Can you test and see if the LR park and RR park fuses are losing power intermittently when this issue occurs?You would want to test to see if one terminal that each of these fuses seat into lose power intermittently when the fault occurs.

I'll try that as soon as I get back to the vehicle

O.k.,let me know when you can.I think we are leaning on a possible internal fault with the BCM (body control module) but I want to see what signals we get here.

Thanks Pete
