I had a SIMILAR problem for months. I thought the solenoid in the emergency blinker button was broken (because that was where the abnormal blinking would come from) but that wasn't the problem.

Take the top cover off of the steering column.

Remove the three screws from the underneath side of the column and remove the bottom cover.
(this may be a pain in the **** to get back on later!)

there is one screw on the top of the column that you must remove and then the whole blinker assembly will slide right off the top.

Disconnect the harnesses at the back of if it and take it to a workstation...here's where your problem is.

On the blinker side back side remove the cover screws and notice that the copper plate the blinker switch moves across is probably full of dirty grease that is probably preventing good contact or abnormal blinking. Take care to remove the grease from the plate and from between the different gaps along it's path.

Re-assemble and take care to push in a couple little switch/buttons when placing the blinker assembly back on the column.

I hope this helps. Since you are having a problem with irregular timing on your issue then, IN MY OPINION, you have something that must be making irregular contact. This really isn't too bad of a repair and if you'd rather just buy new parts (though I don't know why you would) it's about 60 bucks at autozone or probably around 15-20 at a U-pull-It type auto salvage.

Good luck!!!

Turn signal flasher relay location in


Turn signals use what is called a flasher to regulate the speed at which the lamps turn on and off. Usually mounted in the fuse box. I have attached the replacement model for a 1996 Roadie. Should take all of 15 seconds to replace.

I have a 1991 mazda 323 and the right front and rear blinker does not work however the leaft blinker does


When you turn on the right blinker does the indicator light come on? It could be a faulty turn signal switch. The turn signals are routed through the hazzard switch, sometimes you can switch on and off the hazzard switch several times and the turn signals could start working again...Hey it's worth a try..

Blinker works intermittently


more than likely u have a bad flasher. to use it in the meantime, do this: push the lever just enuff to see the arrow flashing (before it starts buzzing), then hesitate briefly and slowly move the lever into the full position. or if u prefer u can hold the lever at the flash until your turn is made.
