Rear Turn siganls flash fast, both front signals will not flash
1998 Olds intregue: Replaced both front bulbs, did not solve issue. Turn signals get brighter, but do not flash. Any ideas ? Rear signals both sides flash fast, front only gets brighter, does not flash.

The blinker sockets on most olds cars are bad. Pull out blinker bulb from your car and check if the plastic is melted; if it is you must replace the socket along with the bulb. Chances are it will melt again someday but not soon I think.- COACH....

Does the left front flash fast as well? Make sure the correct bulb is installed. It should be an 1157 bulb number. If bulb is correct and installed properly you most likely have a ground issue. Check socket for corrossion. You can also try wiggling the wiring at the plug while the signal is on to see if it flashes/lightts up correctly. If it does, the socket may be at fault
If the front and rear bulbs flash fast also, replace the hazard switch or you could live with it. As they are working. If one doesn't work, check grounds. I just run a new ground, much easier than cutting open the harness to find the break.
The wire feeding the front left turn signal is likely crimped or stretched and touching the body somewhere. Do you best to trace the left front turnsignal wire back as far as you can - even just jiggling it might give you short term solution (although it will probably come back).
The fast flash of the rear light is because the short up front is letting too much electricity run through the flasher module. This makes it run too fast. Find the short up front, and both problems will be solved.
Gday mate, we had a problem with another late model vehicle similar to that, the bulb that was put into the reverse light was not exact brand product ( ohmage was slightly wrong ) and fowled up computer, correct bulb in place and disconnect battery to reset K A M ( keep alive memory) problem solved, BEWARE, some vehicles cannot have KAM reset except for dealer computer tethered reboot , just try putting the factory correct bulb(s) in and see how it goes, geoff. hope this helped.
Remove the bulbs one at a time and check for dirt and corrosion at the contacs inside the sockets.The corrosion will cause higher than normal resistence and will make the signal to flash rapidly.As this only happens to the right side only check the right side.
