I hate fast turn signals. I often locate electronic flashers in a junk yard, though they are not too expensive to buy. Every vehicle requires 2 one for the turn signals and one for the hazards. The bi-metal strip (heat activated) style that you have now changes speed with the number of lights on it so are replaced with electronic flashers when towing a trailer. Look for the flashers under your steering column or on your fuse panel. Sometimes they are in the glove box or behind the radio... just listen for it to locate it.
the blinker control under and to the right of the steering column under the knee panel is out its a cheep part you remove the knee panel an turn on the turn signals listen for the ticking you find that part unplug it and replace it yours is bad worn contacts this is a cheap part easy to fix don't let people rip you off good day
sounds like you have a pinched wire inside the column,, or a wire is being stretched and the shielding could have come off and it could have shorted out. if it shorted out - then yes a fuse may be blown or the wire contacts are toasted. check the fuse and trace the wires through the steering column and provide slack where needed.
There are 2 common things that cause this. 1. the hazzard flasher is faulty. the hazzard button and the turn signal flasher are all in one. Sometimes pushing the hazzard button in slightly will get the noise to happen, and is an indication it is faulty. 2. The turn signal switch in the steering column is bad. Turning the turn signal from left to right- very fast and harshly, will sometimes clear it up for awhile. Tech JK --------------
