fast blinking turn signal?
I haven't even begun to check it out, except for glancing at a reflection of my left turn signals as I'm driving. It appears that the front is working and the back is not. It blinks normal speed on the right side, but twice as fast on the left. Is this because the rear light appears to be out, or is it a bad relay? I'll probably just buy a new bulb and figure it out for myself before y'all get a chance to answer, but I figured the thread might help someone else, the next time their turn signals/blinkers start acting up.I like you.

x2 on the bulb. Just replace it and you should be fine if not, I did have a similar issue with my 02 silverado. I traced it down to the connector for the rear wiring harness. It is located on the frame crossmember above the spare tire. It was corroded and the clip was weak. I cleaned it up, put some electronics grease on it and put it back together. Then I used zip ties to hold the connector together. I never had an issue after that.

I too have the same problem w/ the fast blinking turn signal but mine is on the right side rear. First thing I did was replace the bulb which did not fix the problem. Turning on the headlights and the rear lights (brake, running lights) work perfectly so I am at a loss....
Any other ideas?

Fixed my RR blinker not working! All I did was clean out the connecter where the bulb slides in and viola! working blinker and brake light! Maybe this fix will resolve the OP issue...
Thanks to all!

I'm still having this problem
I count 3 bulbs -- all 3 of them are good bulbs. However, when I turn on the right turn signal, the rear turn signal light doesn't flash, and in the vehicle meanwhile the turn signal flashes/clicks very fast.
I tried braking, using the headlights, etc. and all the bulbs seem to work on their own. It's just the turn signal that's messed up.
