does the right hand turn signal keep blowing the fuse. if so, remove one bulb (back) and see if it still happens. if not replace the bulb and remove the other bulb (front). if it still happens it sounds like something in the signal light wiring is shorted. best place to check for shorts and easiest is the connectors itself.
James: Most signals flash fast like that to tell you the signal light is not working. Usually replacing the bulb fixes the problem. Since replacing the bulb is the easiest thing to try, maybe you should try another bulb. After that, you have to suspect a wiring problem or a problem in your turn indicator on the steering column.
The easiest way to me is to remove the bumper and then the headlight is held in with 3 small bolts. Remove them, then the bulbs are easily accessible.
You *might* be able to snake your hands in behind the headlight but you will curse a lot. It also help to know exactly how it looks in the back (maybe google some pictures of the back of the headlight) so you know how to reach and untwist the little bulb holder.
Or drive in to the dealership and ask them to replace the bulb for you. Sometimes they just do it then and there.
I would guess that you need a new bulb. Many of these tail lights actually have two filaments inside them, one that is used for a dimmer light (running light) and one that is used for a brighter light like (brake light, turn signal). The easiest thing to try (and probably the cheapest) would be to buy a replacement bulb and change it. Most places that sell automotive light bulbs will have a large catalog where you look up the make model and year of the car you need a light for and it will tell you which replacement bulb you will need. Then look in your cars manual to see how you access and replace the bulb.
is turn signal plugged in? if this is a new bulb try the old one to make sure bulb is not at fault then need to check the voltage at the connector. A test light is easiest way from a good ground to each terminal. if flashing the ground connection could be corroded. if nothing at connector try the connection at the turn signal switch.
Please check if you have the correct part number bulbs? The front and rear bulbs are dual filiment, one for the signal and the other smaller one is a running light. If the bulb you have are correct, does your 4 way flasher function work and or left turn signal work? If the remaining rear flash ok, then your flasher unit is OK. You can also check the bulb running light by turning on the headlights. You might have a faulty or incorrect bulb if it does not light up.
I just recently had he same problem with mine. I replaced the front right turn signal bulb, but after a week of it working correctly, my wife complained that the turn signal did a double time fast flash. I found the rear bulb signal/ brake bulb was out as well. So I decided to purchase a dual pack bulb set and replace both the rear brake/signal bulbs (bulb number 4135) Your auto part store person can look up the correct number for the bulb brand you choose for the van. Since all the bulbs are about the same age and wear, I would recommend replaceing all of yours. Good luck.
