WTF is wrong with my blinker???

soooo... recently my left turn signal has started going nutso, i replaced the bulbs and it still does it... the left front side blinker/marker flashes insanely fast and the running light goes out making my car look like a spyclops... Ill turn the car off and turn it back on and it goes away.

anyone know what the problem is or what i need to do to fix it?

And only the rear blinker blinks fast, the front DRL and Blinker doesn't even come on.

thats wierd. do your running lights (also blinkers) both come on during normal driving? do they both blink when you turn on your blinker? or is it just that everything works fine, just the light in your instrument cluster is blinking fast?


and steve...that was uncalled for

Mmm Yessah masta, resizin' da signature, masta

Switch bulbs, if the problem moves to the other side the bulb wattage is incorrect. I find the BCM is sensitive to the wattage of these bulbs.

The bulb sockets take a beating from the driving light heat that is generated, try switching sockets if the bulb isnt the problem.

I don't know if that's the problem though because the one ad for the blinker fluid says it's good for "slow blinking" or "sluggish blinkers" Doesn't say for fast blinking or nutso blinkers.
But just in case there is a website that tells you just how to change it

could be a bad multifunction switch... take off your steering wheel cover pieces and check the connector from the harness... see if it's black or chard or even if the wires are stripped..

Fast blinking means the bulb circuit is malfunctioning. Check your connections, fuses, and relays.
