Check the fuse


They normally blink fast when the opposing one is faulty (front to back on same side)

where is this blinker under the dash you speak of? I've replaced the left front signal bulb 5 times and the problem is intermittent. The bulbs are never blown but it acts like it is each time. I fix it and it reappears within a few days.

Hi Jimmy. Did you ever get this fixed? I'm having the same problem. My right side blinker is flashing rapidly. The front right side signal light is working, however the rear right one is not. I've replaced the bulb twice but still no luck.
