    The flasher operates for both left and right, are you sure the bulbs are good?

    The left side flashes if i keep tapping this part lightly with with the end of a flashlight handle while the left turn signal switch is engaged

    Also nobody seems to carry the bulbs with the original bulb numbers

    Would you know what bulb numbers i can use to replace the front and rears?

    Thanks so much

    That's the flasher. The bulbs should be 1156 for the rear and 1157 for the front unless yours are different from 2001+(which I don't think so).

    Try swapping the bulbs from one side to the other, if you have the same result there's an issue with your wiring.

    But isn't it weird that it starts to flash if I tap on the side of the flasher?

    It is odd, I don't have an explanation for that.
