2007 Suzuki XL-7: that has burned out both BACK turn signal bulbs

Resolved Question:

I have a 2007 Suzuki XL-7 that has burned out both BACK turn signal bulbs today. Of course the flasher blips quickly. Where is the flasher located? I hear it, but can't find it.

Is there a trailer hitch on the vehicle?
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
Yes, there is. And I had a brake job done on the rear brakes today at a dealership.
Expert:  Tom replied 6 years ago.
That's the issue they damaged the harness which is grounding out and causing this issue. Follow this harness and fix the wire that's broken or shorting to ground and this will fix this issue . Hoped this issue . Positive feedback and bonuses greatly appreciated.
