you have a bad ground connection.

If one bulb is flashing fast, then that bulb is obviously OK because it's working. , it's gotta be another bulb that's burnt out on that side of the car , try the front turn signal bulb, there might be more than one..

X2 on the front bulb burnt out

It may also be the turn signal repeater on the front fender that is burnt out. More than likely, it is a burnt out bulb, rather than a ground problem, knowing the Bosch electrical system.
