    Hopefully someone here can help me. Like I said, no brake lights or rear blinkers. Fronts work but blink quick. Hazards work only up front but blink normal. All fuses and bulbs are fine. Very confused.

    Also, I replaced both circuit boards 6 months ago.

    Have you checked the brake light switch on the brake pedal??

    Would that affect the rear blinkers?

    yep. no power to them can. I would also check the wiring junction back by your spare tire.

    I am assuming you have done this.
    But checked all fuses?

    Reason being...
    On my Corolla I lost the ability to shift out of Park and into any gear....the gear shifter was totally locked out.

    Turned out to be the rear brake light fuse had blown......changed him out and it worked 1 time.
    Blew again....so I started looking.
    One of the bulbs in the rear light assembly had melted the contact points, thus creating a short in the circuit and so it kept blowing the fuse.

    Replaced the rear tail light assembly and the thing has worked fine since.

    Might sound silly but the rapid blink indicates burnt bulbs in back. Also, a common problem with your series is burnt/cracked sockets. These are designed as a circuit board and can be found at most any parts store. Fairly inexpensive. Check which bulbs are needed for new circuit as they're probably not the same as original.
