Does the right rear turn signal still operate?

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
actually both turn signals work. I've been talking w/people, something to consider this Yukon had a factory tow system installed and I had to tow some trailers earlier this year. It was a month after that I became aware of the brake light issue. could this be some sort of ground issue?
Expert:  Dave Nova replied 2 years ago.

Looks like all of the rear lighting shares a common ground, so not likely that a bad ground would affect just one light. If you have access to a test light or voltmeter, have someone press the brake pedal while you test voltage on the light blue wire at taillight connector on right side. Let me know what you find there.

I'll have to try that tomorrow and see what I find out and get back to you then or next time you're available.

Sounds good. I will look forward to your response.
