How did you do the wiring?. Closest turn signal? If so, Which wires did you attach?

Side note:
when i put everything back together and tested i noticed that they all blink at the same time(no lights were on; parking or headlights) fast forward to later that afternoon I was cruising with my parking lights on and got ready to turn and saw on the truck in front of me that they were alternating( turn and corner lights) I was like WTF??? so i when i got home i messed around a little and heres what i found on mine. They blink together with no lights on and alternate with parking or headlights on.

Have you tried new bulbs? Not just one but both?

Did this mod to my 2011.

Wire colors were different, so I used a mutimeter to be sure I was cutting and tapping the right wires.

I haven't see the wires colors for a 2011 MY posted, so here's what I got:

On the left side, cut the Black/Yellow wire on the corner light, and run it to a tap on the Purple/White wire on the turn signal lamp.

On the right side, cut the Black/Gray wire on the corner light, and run it to a tap on the Gray/Yellow wire on the turn signal lamp.

DO NOT use wire nuts in automotive wiring!

Scotchlocks are okay for this mod if you seal them from moisture. They're not great, but if the Scotchlock fails you only lose the corner light. Soldering and shrink tubing is the best method for more critical electrical connections.
