The fast flashing is just an indicator that one of the bulbs isn't working. It could be as simple as a bad rear bulb.

SOURCE: right read blinker/break light dont work, turn signal blinks rapidly

It's the bulb. There are two filliments in the bulb. One is for when you turn your lights on and the other is for breaking and blinker flashing. When the break filliment goes bad it causes the blinker to flash very rapidly. 100% the bulb. Change it and all will be good again. P.S. if it were a fuse none of the break lights or blinkers would work.

SOURCE: 2001 S60 Right Turn Signal Blinks Rapidly compared to Left Signal

Gregg -

I had the same problem. It was a defective lamp socket on the driver's left side, Volvo Part Number 8662985. Costs me $11.24 to replace the lamp socket, which included the bulb. If you've already replaced the bulbs yourself, you will find replacing the socket pretty easy, just use a thin flathead screwdriver to delicately pry off the metal retainer clip which holds the lamp socket in place, as you'll need to reinstall the existing metal retainer clip once you've replaced the lamp socket. Two minute job.

I have sourced out all fuses and bulbs, yet continue to have a rapid right turn signal. I don't know where else to look. help?


replace the right rear bulb. the quick flashing indicates a bad bulb. it could be a wiring problem to the rear for the signal light that you will have to check out starting at the socket and working forward.

The dash board lights and internal lights on my 2002 Toyota Echo did not turn on while driving home tonight. Also, the left side turn signal is flashing rapidly. Is this a blown fuse and wear is it?


The first thing to do for your dash lights is to verify the fuses, if ok check your lights dimmer next. Sometimes, dimmers fail to provide good contact due to wear or poor filament contact. Otherwise, there is a poor connection somewhere.
Usually, a rapidly blinking turn signal is due to a burnt bulb on the side in question or a bad ground connection either in the front or the back of the vehicle. Turn the left signal on and check if front and back turn lights are on and working if one doesn't work check the bulb. If it is poorly lit and not blinking check the socket and ground connection.
Hope this helps you!

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.

2003 Jeep liberty right front turn signal


why skip RR lamp? what does IT DO? be like 1st 1st look.
dim, out, fast?

the rapid is talking to you
it means current is wrong,
shorted, or open lines. to the right.
its the wiring
if the bulbs are like 1157 brass base bulbs
why not replace them first , they can short inside,
asking online for guessing is silly, why listen to 10 examples for this.
but is cut wires.
shorted wires.
keep i mind the blinker asks funny for both opens and shorts
its a feature, that.
low current or too much.

the acid test is connect 2 TEST bulbs in parallel to the multi-function switch output right side,
blinks ok now, bingo bad lamps or bad wiring, from there to the right side.

if the hazard fails you never said????
if rigth front is dim or dead the bulb is blown or shorted
if new bulb there , then the wires are shorted.
to it.
the only help on line worth squat is how to test and use your meter.
you can, check for voltage
you can check continuity on that line (its just 1 wire)
and check for shorts on that wire to ground (lamps pulled right side to do that, lamps read 0 ohms cold)
look for collision damage RF? behind lamp sockets?
be first.
in my book.
looking is always first. sure.


I have your SM book open now, chapter 8w-50
the haz/blink module has just 2 pins, left and right out.
pin 3 on the module runs front and rear blinks, (a fact to know)
RF is BR/RD, brown -red stripe?
all comments USA on USA forum. USA car.
ok?

the right side lamp (sidemaker) only blinks turns if parks ARE oFF

Id try 2 new blinker lamps front and 1 rear.
that be first. or test the lamp on a battery , and no not get burned fingers hot wring a shorted lamp.

wish i knew
what rear did
and what both did on HAZ
out, dim or to fast.

Rapid right turn signal on dash but no right rear turn ligt at all


What that rapid turn signal on the dash means is, the rear turn signal tail light is burnt out. This is how you know the bulb is bad. Replace the burnt out tail light bulb and you will be back to normal.

Rear lights work when turned on. No brake lights or rear turn signals. Front turn signals flash more rapidly. Replaced both rear bulbs with no change


if you're getting a more rapid flash in the front you have a possible blown relay to the back. Check fuses first and see if those are out.

Flasher


When 1 is inop and the other rapidly blinks that generally means a bad ground to the front light if you can't find it just attach another ground wire to the bulb socket and see if the light blinks normal.
