Question about 2008 Pontiac G6 Sedan
The circuit that the bulbs run off of splits. When the bulb is burnt or not seated right, in your case the driver side rear bulb, the circuit requires the current to go somewhere. Which is why the blinker is working twice as fast.
Make sure the bulb is seated properly. I used a Sylvain 3057 or 3057 LL (long life) when experiencing a similar problem and seemed to work fine. Some bulbs have a coating on the glass and the oil from our hands, especially if you eat the amount of beer nuts I do, will cause it to malfunction. Long shot, but you never know.
Good idea to check the cables running into the housing of the light as well. A lot of activity may have pulled something loose. Exhaust your efforts before taking it in, especially with electrical issues. It's something you need so they got you by the beer nuts!
