Right turn-signal flashing very quickly.. how to fix?

Right turn-signal flashing very quickly.. how to fix?

Postby carsonhowe22 [OP] » Jan 12 2012, 3:41am

I noticed tonight while driving through town that my right turn-signal is ticking/flashing twice as fast as it should be. My left turn-signal is at normal speed. I heard that this is caused by a short circuit? I'm not totally sure and am very uneducated when it comes to wiring. How can I go about fixing this?

Check your right side turn signal bulbs. They will flash about double speed if one or more is burned out.

Try changing the bulb first, it could be a double filament shorted out in the rear

Check the front as well, lots of people forget they can affect it as much as the rear ones.

I just changed the front ones, so they should be good to go for a while. But it's not just the light flashing quickly, on the inside of the truck in the dash where you see the green arrows flash, they're flashing at twice the speed they should be as well. Would that mean that it's just the bulb or does that mean it's something else?

turn on your turn signal on the side you having the prob with, look at your rear turn signal, these guys are correct, when the signal/clicking noise does double duty it usually means a bulb is burnt out.. on that side..

And yes, the inside display will flash at double speed too. It's probably a bulb.
