Both reverse lights blink when using the right turn signal

Strange problem here.. but here's what I know.

2000 S-10

When my headlights are off:
Left and right turn signals work fine

When my headlights are ON:
Left turn signal works fine. Neither reverse light is lite.
The problem: Right turn signal triggers the reverse lights to blink. The right turn signal also blinks.

Suggestions? Plz help.

Dead on. That was it.
The side that caused the blinking to occur had the wire frayed. I cut the wire, found a solid ground wire and re-ran it. I'm in business again. Thanks!

I had the same problem. I just used some sand paper and made a nice new ground on the frame and used an eyelet to ground each side. Haven't had any problems since.
