Progress Thread My 16's rear turn signal indicator

A couple of days ago, I went to turn left and my dash turn signal started rapidly blinking. I look back at the rear blinkers and the middle bar in not blinking the during the 3 stage blinker that the mustangs are famous for. The weird thing is that the middle bar running lights still operate. I normally I would just change the bulb, but there are no bulbs because the assembly operates with LED's. I went to an auto parts store (Auto Zone) and they told me that I had to purchase a new rear indicator assembly for ...$1000! Please say it's not so.
Has anyone else had an issue like this?

There are a few places that will repair them but it would have to be shipped to them. The other alternative is aftermarket tail lights. has them for under 300 a piece in a light smoke finish.
