    My right turn signal is not functioning as it should. There's no clicking sound and the taillight itself flashes rapidly. I've rebooted several time to no avail. Any suggestions or is this a SC issue?

    burnt out front signal bulb on that side... or side marker bulb on that side?

    most cars rapid blink when there's a burnout. You can thank Australians for this.

    tell us, does dash indicator still light up, does it blink rapidly too?

    Thats what it means on a classic ICE - I would check the front right side marker and quarter panel light too

    Yes, the dash indicator blinks rapidly. I'll check everything when I return from Denver. Thanks for the suggestions!

    Since everything is LEDs I didn't think a burnout was possible so I didn't check -- foolish me.

    While my car was in for the Nav fix my SC also addressed this problem by replacing the entire right rear tail lamp.
