Might try some bulb grease on the new bulbs to insure a constant good connection.

the contacts might be weak. They may need bent together a little to be more snug on the bulb contacts.

When the one bulb flashes fast, does the other bulb work at all? If not and the bulb is good, it may be a lose ground, bad ground or lose connection. WD-40 into the connection will help cleanit up and give it a good connection. Is there any chance water is getting into the bulb socket?
