I removed the TIPM and cleaned it like in the video. Sprayed some silicone on it for good measure and about to reinstall

nothing looked corroded and the C plug I looked very close at. It looks perfect.

probing it with an ohm meter soon

Hello!

Will someone help me solve why my right turn signal is blinking fast like the bulb is out but the bulb is fine/replaced? Also the front right DRLwon’t light up

When I engage the right blinker. It blinks two or three times normally. Then it chimes. Then it blinks fast.
I had the same problems with my 2008 in March. Reground the ground point G110 by stripping approximately 7 wires at the grounding point it will solved all the weird issues. It’s take about an hour to work on a confined space near the accessory belt. Good luck!!!

ok... so, I've removed, disassembled, and thoroughly cleaned the TIPM. No improvement although it's nice to have clean wires.

I've checked the resistance in the fog lamp circuit and it is 0.01 ohm no issue.
Headlight circuits checked out too...
It is very hard to get to the right turn signal bulb and connector.
I will be checking the front right turn signal connector and re-crimping the ground G110 over the coming days.

I will certainly keep y'all posted on what solution I discover.

If anyone can refer me the proper procedures for gaining access to the front passenger DRL bulb... I ripped the bumper off last time there has to be an easier way to access the bulb and socket.

Anyways it's a head scratcher!!! I will keep at it thanks!

Did you mean right turn signal bulb?

Okay it is indeed a bad ground. 🤷🏻 I suck at electric but it’s the ground 😂

does anyone know the wire gauze at g110?
And maybe the hole size though I’m sure it’s standard

If I remember correctly, there are some 18ga wires and some 20ga.

looks to me like a 10 gauge eyelet will work but im getting 8.10.12 to be safe idk

I have no idea which wire It was. Haven’t touched g110since the other day when I cleaned it. I’ve read it’s the pink andblack wire but I will be sure to takemany photos for you when I cut into it to inspect the “failure mode”

I jumped the ground pin on the light socket and it fixed it. That’s how I kbow. And yes I feel stupid this was the first thing you told me to do but I must have done it wrong. Bad jump idk

Here’s what the ground looked like. Partial success.

Crimped and soldered new terminals on… it seems to have fixed the right fog light (which went out after playing w it. And the DRL. However. The front right turn signal does not illuminate at all and it blinks fast still. Maybe the bulb is in backwards???

^^ thanks I’ll do that. The blinker now sometimes works so I’m thinking maybe I didn’t make a good enough connection. I didn’t cut the wires back. Like at all. I cut them at the crimp and then cleaned them up in alcohol. Melted them a bit with the map torch like an idiot. And then soldered crimped.
So I’m thinking I will first re do my shoddy work and then see if the now intermittent problem becomes resolved. I appreciate the help looks like I’ve got it from here :D

Thanks for sharing all this information. Great thread that I am learning lots from. Glad to know I am not the only one challenged with the diagnostics part. Great job of "keepin' at it" weffy. Most of us have "been there, done that" - pros have the advantage of hundreds/thousands of hours experience under their belt.

For re-terminating G-110, or any other ground terminal, I'd recommend using the linked terminals and crimper (or similar), as well as heat-shrink tubing and liquid electrical tape. Snip the old terminal off, strip back about a half inch of insulation. Clean the wire ends really good with terminal cleaner. Crimp on a new lug, then solder it. After it's cool, apply some of the liquid tape, then put some heat-shrink over it.

Overkill? Maybe, but is should last forever.
