Both rear blinker lights are out. I took out the housing and replaced the bulb (the one that I googled...) It still doesn't work. There are 2 possibilities going through my head. 1: that the wiring for the rear blinkers is somehow messed up. (Especially since online it seems as if the bulb has more than one function, and its the same bulb for the tail light and the turning signal.) 2: there is a second bulb on the side, which may be the correct bulb. (The 2 problems with that being, A: there is no mention of this bulb on Google, besides for one reference on a YouTube video. B: when I go to any car site, I.e. advance auto parts, when I put in the car type and model it shows the other bulb as the correct one). Basically I want to know which exact light bulb is the turning signal. So back to my original question. If someone owns such a car, I would ask them to check which bulb is blinking when the turning signal is on
Don't know anything about cars but is it possible that second bulb is a hideaway bulb

Does the brake lights work? How many filaments does the bulb have?
Brake light, turn signal and tail light outer are all 3057 bulbs.

The car manual usually has a detailed sketch of all the fuses

I have the 3057. That's what I replaced. More than 1 filament. Tail light works. That's what's so weird

No sign of the turning signal fuse though

Does your brake lights work? What about running lights?

Yeah its possible that its just a random bulb. I had such a possibility, but I still can't find that bulb online to buy. I wouldn't mind testing it just in case

Hazards most likely use the second filament of the brake and turn signal bulbs.
