Nope. A couple weeks ago I put red bulbs in my front turn signal/DRLs, but as far as I know the rear turn signal bulbs haven't been replaced yet. I have had to replace the brake lights though. After 8 years and 104k miles they probably do need to be replaced. I'll have to run by Advance here soon and get a new set. Thanks guys

I fixed this a while ago but my right front turn signal bulb was loose. I took it out and put it back in, made sure it was in all the way, and now everything is fine.

Good to hear. That would be the same as the bulb being burned out in that it would not provide resistance that a good plugged in bulb would, resulting in the fast flash.

Being a part of this forum group has paid off already, my left turn signal started flashing really fast too so I checked the bulbs. The drivers side was out. Changed the bulb works fine now. I did notice though that the back up bulb I replaced on the passenger side is not the same bulb on the drivers side. Anyone know the reason on that ? Thanks guys.

NEW SITUATION

I just replaced my turn signals/DRLs with LED bulbs, and now both of my turn signals are flashing quickly. I can't get the LED bulbs to go in their socket any more than I already have so I know they aren't loose. Anybody else have this problem?

Someone will chime in but led bulbs don't have the proper resistance and that why its flashing fast.

It will require the addition of a resistor. It's an easy fix, but I don't have the details...one of our experts will chime in here soon.
Not to worry, though, you won't hurt anything in the meantime.
