Default fast blinking turn signal

My left turn signal blinks at a faster rate than the right. Why would this be? I don't even know where to satrt looking. Do blinkers go bad? I figured they just went completely.

I think this means your flasher is going bad. Don't know if that is the right term? My ford had these things in the fuse box that were what I call a flasher and they needed to be changed to heavy duty when I towed etc. The other thing it could mean is that one of the bulbs is out

Check all of your bulbs. You most likely have one out on the problem side

Usually if its the flasher thats bad neither blinker flashes, it just stays illuminted when you hit the switch. the emergency flashers work fine as long as youre off the brake and if you push the brake pedal the flashers stop flashing and stay lit...usually

You're low on blinker fluid. :tonka:





Honestly, you probably have a bulb out on that side.

I changed my blinker fluid out when I greased my muffler bearings, so I know it can't be thet. I'll check for dead bulbs.

It was dead bulb. Thank you for the pointers though, I never would have known to look!
