I assumer you're getting a a "check left turn signal" error message too? The rapid flash is the car's way of letting you know you've got a bulb out. The front bulbs can be tricky since they're double filament. If one filament is out the light may look dim. Set the hazards on and inspect. Last time this happened to me on my 2001 S60, the bulb was fine and the socket was flaky. You may need to clean the contacts and check the resistance from the plug to the socket. Mine is working now - for the time being. I hope it's not your front bulb because you have to remove the air filter to get to it. Good luck!

There could be several things that will cause your blinkers to stop working. Most will have to be diagnosed by a QUALIFIED automotive electrical shop but there is one thing you can try first. Step one is to turn your blinker stalk rapidly between right and left turn. Don't damage anything, just go back and forth several times real fast. Next, turn your emergency flashers on and off. Rapidly, like you did with the turn signal stalk. Again, don't damage anything, just do it as rapidly as you can, several times. What you are trying to do is clean the contacts inside the switches. Those two circuits work together to operate the turn signal lights and the emergency flashers are rarely, if ever, used and the contacts get a little corroded.
odd speed blinker is a message to tell you that a light bulb has burned or is disconnected. All front lights can be replaced from the engine compartment EXCEPT the turn signal :( .Unfortunately you will have to pull the headlight assembly out in order to reach the turn signal bulb. If the light was off since the assembly was replaced, there is a chance that the socket was simply left unplugged.
If the left turn is flashing fast then this is a sign that either the front or rear indicator bulb has blown and will need replacing once you have done this then you should find it will work properly if not post me a message back then i can assist you further ok
the rapid blink is because there is a bulb outage some where, Pull Over turn on left Blinker Get out of your car look at the front left blinker hen walk to the rear of your car and look at the left rear Blinker light then do the same for the right side blinkers if all are working rapidly your left right switch is bad
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.
