Default Blinker Blinks At Double Speed

My front and rear left directionals sometimes blink at double the usual
speed. Can you tell me what this means?

Thanks!

First guess there are bad lamps, second is that there is a electical
connection problem in the assembly. Been through rain or snow lately?

Double speed blinkers are meant to be an indicatin you you have a burned out
bulb. If all your bulbs seem to be OK, then likely it is becasue of
excessive resistance in some part of circut for the lights that are blinking
at double speed. I'd suggest replacing the bulbs (be sure to get the correct
ones) and while you are replacing the bulbs take a good look at the bulb
sockets and make sure their is no corrosion. If the problem still persists,
you'll have to start looking at other parts of the system for problems.

It means there is a bulb out someplace on the side that blinks fast. Turn
the blinkers on on one side, look at all of the blinking lights. Turn the
blinkers on on the other side and look for a light from the first side that
does not blink on the second side.
