Question about Cars & Trucks
Replace t/sig flasher
Posted on Apr 28, 2015
There must still be some burnt out bulbs. The reason they blink to fast is because the bulbs have a heat-based blink mechanism, and when a bulb is out there is more power going to the bulbs which causes them to heat faster. Double check all the bulbs one by one.

found this discussion which might be helpful:
No surprise at all! Common problem which has been discussed several times on this site.
Basically.....tail light(s) plugs (Pig Tails) were sub-standard and cannot stand the heat of the bulbs. Pull out hear tail light fixtures, remove bulbs from recepticals and check for melting plastic, usually between the black wire (hot wire) and one or more colored wires. If so, cut out old Pig Tail, get a replacement Pig Tail, soder it in (I think about 6 wires), and use electrical shrink wrap around sodered joint, install new bulbs using Di-electric grease in the socket. Test before reinstalling light fixture.
The poster also mentioned something I forgot; use some kind of grease in the sockets any time you have reason to access them.
The dielectric grease he mentioned is best but if you can't find (it is and electronic item, rather than electrical), even petroleum jelly will afford some protection.
I use it on battery clamps and it helps ****** the typical corrosion.
Since most cars use the chassis for ground, even the fasteners that hold in lighting assemblies can lose contact so I always loosen, then retighten them, to ensure decent ground contact.
Check too for corrosion in the light sockets themselves.
Dunno why it is so tough to seal a compartment but our US manufacturers can't seem to get it right.

I had this problem, and to be honest, it happened to the left side about a week later...it's the board that the bulbs plug into...it's a very common problem with this model. So popular that you can normally get the socket board off the shelf at a parts store! it's extremely simple to replace, and I replaced all the bulbs at the same time!

Buy new wiring harnesses I tried everything you did and getting new harnesses online for around $19.00 a piece fixed this issue and it sure was a relief. Search online and don't forget Amazon too. Good luck.
