Turn signals flashing too fast

On my 1999 Buick Regal, my turn signals are flashing very fast. The front-left actually flashes as does the rear-right signal. The front-right and the rear-left light up, but don't flash.

I'm wondering if this is one or two bulbs that are bad, or if there's a flasher control that's bad that's causing everything to flash rapidly. I know on other cars that I've had, there's a little silver flasher that can be replaced to fix the rate of the turn signals, but I can't seem to find one on this Buick.

Any ideas? I'd rather not just start replacing turn signals if it's the flasher control.

It is amazing that people have not learned that very fast flashing of turn signals is because the filament of the lamp that is not flashing is broken. Replace the bulbs. While you're at it, replace all of them at the same time if you haven't replaced any recently.

Fast flashing turn signals


I would change out the turn signal bulb on the right front. A blown bulb can cause the fast flash issue. The signals staying on is not related to the bulb being blown. That is most likely a problem with the multifunction switch, the knob you use to signal.

Check the front turn signal bulbs. This will affect the resistance in the circuit and cause the working light to flash at a much faster rate.

Left blinker flash fast, hit brake left blinker goes out left taillight goes out but both backup lights come on


Usually a fast flashing signal is because one of the bulbs is burned out or shorted out. If the signal and brakes use the same light which many cars do then check the wiring to it and replace bulb. If burns out again then it has a short between the signal switch and the actual light or the brake wiring to it is shorted.

Turn signal left front won't flah


I dealt with a similar problem on an 01 Alero (very similar car) and found that the wire that grounds the signal filament of the bulb was broken inside the harness. I tapped into it and grounded it to the chassis and resolved the problem. It's no guarantee but if you have a multimeter, check each wire's continuity to ground as well as the impedance between each of the wires on the harness, on both front signals (for comparison purposes), and it'll show you if you have a problem such as the one I dealt with.
