Left Turn Signal Flasing Very Fast

I have an intermittent problem where the left turn signal will flash very quickly at times. When viewing the outside turn signals, the back and side lights are flashing very quickly, however the front singnal lamps appear to be on but do not flash.

Any ideas on what the problem may be ?

Thanks,
john

Have a 2009 chevy cobalt. the left turn tail light even though not fused will not blink, and the left indicator light flickers too fast. the right though is working perfectly


Buy a two pack of turn signal bulbs. Change the front and rear left bulbs and try it out. If you're lucky, you're done and got away cheap. If not, start chasing electrons. Not an overly complicated circuit, the signal is quick flashing because you have an inoperative lamp.

1994 3500hd front left turn signal won't work


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.

Left turn signal works intermittently.


Hello. You may have a faulty turn signal switch or an expensive relay module. A turn signal switch is way cheaper than a relay module.

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.

My left turn signal goes too fast when i want to make a left turn but my right turn signal is fine... how do i make the left one normal again?


Replace the burned out bulb. It is flashing fast to alert you that bulb is burnt out. Turn on the side that works properly & note all bulbs flashing in front, rear & side. Most likely there is at least 1 burnt out on the other side.

Turn signal flashes repeatedly


Could be several things but generally this happens when one of the turn signal bulbs is burned out (front or back), especially if it is fast on one side (left vs right). Once the burned out bulb is replaced the flashing returns to normal.
