Tail Light Problem

So today i put the tint on my tail lights. In order to make it easier i took them out. After putting the new tinted lights back on i turned to lights on to make sure everything was working properly. My left rear tail works normally, braking turns on the outer two lights and signaling does the same. However the right one is acting funny. Braking only turns on the middle bulb and putting the signal on only turns the middle bulb on as well and it flashes twice as fast as my left turn signal.... Could i have accidentally switched some bulbs around or what?

You didn't blow a bulb did you? That's what it sounds like. Just replace the bulbs and see

why would that make the one bulb flash twice as fast? does it just compensate for the blown bulb?

It's an indicator, on every car i've ever seen, when your blinkers start flashing faster like that it's an indicator that you have a blown bulb. i agree with 1shotkllz, try replacing it first, its like $2 or so for a pack of 2
