Customer Question

I am having problems with my brake/turn signals. I added a 1969 - 71 Olds Cutlass bumber to replace my damaged one. At first all lights worked except for the far left found that the receptical was bad. While troubleshooting it I shorted one of the contacts to the ground. I still have my original turn left operation, but my right side works twice as fast/w the two lights in the bumper operating while the left has no operation, ????
