Directional lamp flashes faster than normal?

This means a bulb has burned out on that particilar side of the car or truck giving more amps to the circuit to the working bulb which causes the faster flashing

Why would only one out of 4 marker lights work?


you are right all marker lights come off of one fuse, inside instrument panel, number 29, a 10 amp fuse my manual does not give a lamp number, it has a chart, head lamps (high) lamp 9005 60 w type a, headlamp (low) 9006 51 w type b, front marker lamps 5w type d, for the rear it says to use a lamp 7443 21.5 w type d, I do not use these, I have special lights on mine, hope that it helps

How to fix my right brake light and fast moving turn signal on my 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee?


The most likely problem is two burned out light bulbs. A burned out tail/stop lamp on the right side and a burned out brake lamp on the left. If you have already replaced the bulbs, then yes, the circuit boards are the next most likely cause of the problem.

I have a 1996 gmc sonoma.The blinkers quit working.I tried the flasher and it showed that both sides were blinking.I turned off the flasher and tried the blinkers and they worked,well at least one time.I turned on the flasher again and it worked.So,I tried the blinkers again.Nothing!! What could be the problem? Thank ya in advance


You have some burned out filaments. On dual filament bulbs the "blinkers" I am taking it to mean the turn signals. They are one filament. The "Flashing Caution lights, work on a relay circuit, which sends a larger amp current into the opposite filament then the turn signal. Check front & rear bulbs.

2000 taurus left turn signal flashes rapidly and the left rear turn signal lamp does not work. Does ford have burned out bulb sense circuit that would give this indication? The right side flashes normally.


Yes - the fast flashing is a warning that a bulb is burned out. Change the bulb (be careful to put it in the same as the old one as it probably is 2 bulbs in one , parking and turn/stop) and you should be fine.

Blinker blinks fast, replaced bulb, it burned out too


Most cars have separate flashers for each side now, and in fact, if it still blinks, even though faster than normal, there's probably a short circuit somewhere on the light wire where it's exposed and making contact with the frame of your car or some other metal part, which then causes the bulb to burn out.
