signals flash fast?
Monday, February 20, 2012 1:21 PM
OK so when I got the car the signals were wired flash with the fog lights. So I disconnected that and made the fog lights fog lights again. I taped of the wires that he had added and now my signals blink very fast. Any ideas?

means one (or more) of your turn signals are not working. at night, turn the headlights on, and one side of the turn signals. then walk around the car and see what's flashing. then the other, and see what's flashing again. you'll find something not flashing. then go from there.

Have the bulbs been replaced with LED bulbs? If they are the wrong resistance, it could cause this issue.

someone told me to change the signal flasher. he may have put a bigger flasher on because he added 2 more lights on to the circuit. so when i took the 2 extra lights off the it lessened the load there for making them flash fast. so i just need to change it back to a smaller one.

make any sense? and no they are not LED bulbs.

ok good.

But the car does have mirrors with lights on them, so if i hook them back up then it should slow down as well right?

Cuz when he made the fogs blink he said he took the wires from the mirrors and brought them down to the fogs. I was gonna do it i just couldn't find the wires coming from the mirrors. I'm gonna have to take the plate on the inside of the door behind the mirror off and see where they are.

Generally, no... the mirror lights will not affect signal flash speed. However, given the previous owner's creative interpretation of wiring, it may very well be. I'd first start by putting in the proper flasher and see if that fixes the issue.
