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.

SOURCE: pontiac montana turn signal flashing too fast

At:
http://townhall-talk.edmunds.com/direct/view/.f101976
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.

SOURCE: 99 Chevy Tahoe... Rear turn signals, brake lights, and hazards

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!

SOURCE: turn signals flash very fast,all bulbs are

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.

How can I test the multifunction switch?


Its possible both brake bulbs are burnt out.
Rare, but a wiring issue to both rears.
try the hazards. if the hazards are same as brake lights you are in luck to test alot. if the brake lamps light up with hazards then you know your multi function switchis bad.

Check your bulbs sound like one is burnt out, or it is not properly grounded. Good luck.

When i use the sighnal it flashes fast and only the front lights up the back dosent but the brake lights do light up


The fast blink signals that you have a flasher bulb burnt out, as I suspect you do in your rear turn signal. The flasher sees a voltage drop through the burnt out bulb and signals a fast flash.

2002 Pontiac Montana. Front passenger side turn signal doesn't blink but the bulb is working as a running light. The faulty turn signal connection causes the right turn signal to blink excessively fast. Do...


Need to replace the bulb. There are 2 filaments in the bulb. 1 works parking light the other is turn signal. It flashes fast to alert you that it has a blown out bulb.

Right turn signal blinks very fast I have changes the light and all other lights on the rear but the problem still exists. 2003 passat wagon 4 cylinder


I had the same problem with my 2002 Jetta. The front right bulb wasn't working. I replaced the bulb and it still didn't work, that's when I found that the bulb could be inserted backwards! I turned the bulb 180 degrees and now the blinkers are normal.

Another thing I noticed was that one of the contacts on the bulb and socket were burnt. I bought the car used in 2010 and I verified that the flasher relay was replaced as part of the recall, so I don't know if the damage was done before the relay was replaced or I still have a problem. I will keep an eye on the bulb about one a month.

Left turn signal light flashes very fast and does not make the left rear taillight blink. I replaced the turn signal relay but still have same problem. Fuses checked out okay.


Change the left rear turn signal light bulb. It is probably burnt out! The fast blinking flasher is the clue you have a blown bulb.

TURN SIGNAL BLINKS TO FAST RIGHT


The blinker usually blinks fast when a turn signal light is burnt or not contacting. Check the signal bulbs to see if they are contacting or in good condition. If that is not it. Try replacing the blinker under the dash.
