HI , I am having some lighting issues , I've been throwing money at this buggy since July , I am getting close to having it  back together . I have head lights, high and low , I have tail lights , I have brake lights. when I turn on my blinkers the front work like they are supposed too but all 4 of my rear lights blink at once . anyone have any ideas how I can fix this . also with the light switch off , I have brake lights , but front blinkers and all lights on the back blink at once .

Based on the description, I would look at each and every ground connection for the lamp sockets.  I think you may have a bad ground(s) and getting ghosting grounds or feeds through other bulbs.  I see this a lot on older trailers where ground have worked loose from vibration, but fiberglass buggy's also lack a lot of grounding options.  This is most common with 1157 type bulbs or housings with a single wire ground.

The ground suggestion is a good one. Especially if the rear(s) blink more dimly.

Another issue could be wiring. Did it work before and this is a new issue?

If this is the first time it has been wired what kind and how many lights do you have in the rear? Why style turn signal switch?
