Question about Cars & Trucks

The right hand flasher on my 97 Rodeo blinks fast like a bulb is out. When I checked it, both front and back were working, but the front one was really dim in comparison to the other three flashers. I replaced the bulb with a new one, but it's still dim and blinking fast. Any ideas?

SOURCE: 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.

95 Mazda 323 Hatchback - front left turn signal works sometimes. When not working, indicator blinks fast and rear left signal light blinks quickly as well. I was told it was the bulb but how can that


Could be a faulty socket too. The flasher "blinks" slow when all lights are functioning. A short to ground, to another circuit, or an open circuit can make the flasher blink fast.

1997 Dodge Neon left signal lights work great. Right side blinks very fast.


Has the car been in a fender bender ? check for wiring going to the front and rear lights to see if on has rubbed into a ground wire or the body. ( even if there has been no accident.)

2008 CTS front directional not working?


Try replacing ALL directionals for the side that is not working properly. That fast blink in the back usually means bad bulb, but could also mean bad relay.

Can you elaborate? You say emergency flashers work, but FR directional does not. Does the bulb-in-question light when the E-flashers are going?

When its blinking fast look at both front and rear to verify which bulb isnt flashing. If the right works OK, then the flasher is OK. The flasher is INSIDE the front control module/integrated power module. If you cant find the problem, you may need a dealer to check it.

Left hand turn signal is blinking too fast. However, the lights work fine,front and back. Right hand side is fine.


normally when that happens its one of two things,, one of the bulbs has gone bad and the filament has arched over the other filament , so check the bulbs with a tester not just by eye , and if thats all ok, check the flasher unit itself, which I doubt in this case since its just one side is the problem clean the base of each bulb so you know they h ave a good ground

if you look at the fuse box you will find a yellow or a silver round canistor plugged into the front of the fuse panel this is a flasher and they (2) control your flashing usually the second flasher is plugged in the back of the fuse box almost exactly where the one on the front is located. these are usually the cause of flashing problems. be aware that it also can be the multifunction assembly inside the colum this is usually fairly expensive to have fixed these assemblies can cost a couple of hundred for the part

Problem with directional signal on my 97 Camry


Bad ground. You will need a diagram to figure out where the lights ground, but look around the radiator core support and see if any ground wires are loose, or corroded. Even if they look good, loosen and tighten the wires while the flashers are on.

Left blinker blinks faster than the right. which the back left blinker does not work and front left blinks really fast.Right blinker works normal?


Flasher relays relies on bulb wattage for the speed of the blink.
You probably just have a blown bulb in the left rear blinker.:)

Jeep Liberty 2002 - I get a fast blink on the left turn signal (but a normal blink on the right). Where is the flasher located?


Normally when this happens you have a blown bulb on either the front or rear the fast blink is because with only one bulb working the flasher clicks it faster less of a load means faster blink.
