'97 OBW 170,000 miles.

 

Right turn signal cycles really fast. Both lamps work. Hazards work normally.

 

Is this the flasher?

 

It's getting really annoying.

Probably a poor ground. Usually due to corrosion in the bulb sockets.

Pull the bulbs out and check them with a meter. Dual filament bulbs may look like they are ok but can be internally shorted.

In mine, I had to replace the turn signal stalk on the steering column.

When the turn signals flash at twice their normal speed, the cause is too much resistance in the circuit on that side of the car. As stated already, there is a bad bulb (not burned out but on its way out, or shorte), or sorrodede bulb socket or wiring harness socket on the same side of the car, front or rear. A bad connection at the turn signal switch, as previously stated, will do the same thing.

 

You need to do some digging to get to the bottom of it. Good Luck!
