Left rear brake and turn signal not working

I have a 97 Expedition the left rear brake light and turn signal are not working. The front left is working but it flashes very fast. The arrow indicator on dash flashes fast with left turn but not right.

I changed the bulb with the recommended bulb 3157LL but it still does not work. It is a dual filament. The one that I removed was a 3156K single filament.

Any Ideas on how to fix?

my cousin calls that the "ricer" turn signal... you guys have blown bulbs.. when your turn signal goes ricer on u it means that on that side there is a bulb out, so goose, ure left rear turn/brake bulb is blown, it might turn on with the parklamps, but the stop/brake part of the bulb, the filament, is burnt.
