turn signal lights up tail light
weird problem is the rear turn signal crosses from turn/brake filament of bulb to the tail light filament. it's doing this on the left or right. when I turn on turn signal it crosses back n forth to the tail light. Anyone had or heard of this issue? where do I start to look? Do I have a short some where?

Bad ground would be the first thing to check.

or a bad bulb

I've had all kinds of issues like that with bad grounds. Also had bad sockets cause issues like that.

I would start by checking grounds. I ended up adding numerous ground straps which cleared up some weirdness I was having.

Also check to be sure the wiring harness isn't pinched or damaged somewhere causing shorts.
