fast turn signal problem, answers here!

my right turn signal (the larger orange corner) flashes excessively quick and wont run when the night lights are on.

ive searched this before and it happens to many people but i couldnt find an actual solution, just that a lot of people have it.

is the problem with the bulb, or electronics, or a fuse

easy fix or no?

mucho $$$$ or inexpensive repair?

THANKS

I think I've heard that this happens when there's a bad connection either between the wiring and the bulb socket or between the bulb socket and the bulb itself. You could try replacing the bulb and socket. Maybe it's a good time to upgrade to clear corners?

It blinks fast because one of your bulbs are out. Probably the rear turn signal.

i guess that could be since it doesnt turn on, i thought that was just related cut out or something.

but then the warning light that comes on is on the front of the car, not the back

Not necessarily, i have this problem and i have no bulbs out. Another member on the forums had the same problem and found out it was corrosion on the connectors. He took all of the connectors and cleaned them and hasn't had a problem again. I'm going to do this real soon. Just my .02
