    I have the same problem. I have replaced the rear light assembly and the plug to this assembly. both only resolved the problem temporarily. I have gotten the suggestion that it is possible a grounding issue with the wiring. I need to find the wiring diagram to be able to trace the problem and find the solution.

    I also have the same problem.  The front right turn signal started blinking fast so we replaced the bulb but it is still doing it.

    It could be the socket. Look for water condensation on the light assembly. If there is water in there, check the socket for burning. You will need to replace the socket and make sure water cannot get into your light assembly.

    Look for water condensation on the light assembly. If there is, it could be the socket shorting out. You will need to replace the socket and make sure that water cannot get into the light assembly or it will continue to happen.

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.

Verify all front & rear bulbs are working the same as the right front. It blinks fast usually because bulbs are burnt out or flasher is bad.

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.

Left turn signal is blinking fast,where is the relay located at?


You did not say if the right signal blinks ok or not. Assuming it blinks like the left, the best way to find the blinker is to leave the engine off but the key switch on and turn your blinker on. Now LISTEN and you should hear the clicking. If the right side blinker is normal then you may have a bad turn signal bulb or ground to one of the signal bulbs. An easy way to check your turn signal bulbs is to turn on your emergency flashers and look at the bulbs, they all should blink at the same time and with the same brightness. Good Luck
