You need to locate the blinker switch.. This it the switch that tells it to blink and at what rate..
I forget whre it is on this car.. Might be in the relay compartment or fuse compartment..
Or somtimes they are alone under the dash some where..
You know that "blink-um blink-um" sound ? That is the switch.. If you can hear it good enough to track it down - replace it.. That "should" take care of the problem..

Hope this helps !!
rate me good ;o)

Town and counrty front right signal light flashing faster, rear light stop flashing


the signal indicator lights are suppose to flash in perticular time interval which is connected to a timer relay when the light flashes faster that means the other light is not working and the relay is getting double the current and moving faster so check the other light either the bulb is fuse or the current is not reaching up to the bulb

4wd 4wdlow light flashing


Hi there:
That flashing is a signal from the GEM computer that indicates a failure in the Control-Trac system. Typically it is one of the Hall-effect axle speed sensors (located in the t-case) that has failed. In the auto position on your model the system monitors relative front and rear axle speeds, increasing the period of engagement of the clutch pack in the transfer case to eliminate the rear moving faster than the front. If it gets to full-lock, for example, and the rear still seems to be turning faster then it reverts the system to 4WD (locks the transfer case in 4wd as it does in 4wd-lo) and flashes the lights to tell you of the problem (in 97 and later models it reverts to 2WD in the default, auto position). Some have reported cleaning the contacts on the speed sensors has helped, but you may want to get to a dealer if the problem persists. Watch that they dont automatically try to replace the computer or the transfer case. Usually it is just a sensor problem, which is relatively easy and inexpensive to replace. There is a shift motor on the t-case on these models, but it is only used to select 4wd-lo and yours seems to do that OK.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

Indicator issue


It could possibly be that one of the indicator bulbs has broken , when this happens there is a higher voltage drop going through the remaning bulbs which makes them blink faster.
Try switching on your hazards and walking around to see if all the indicator bulbs are working.
