Signal Light Blinks like 100
#1300404 - 08/14/06 09:44 PM

When I put my left signal on it blinks like theres no tommorrow.. FAST and LOUD.. What might be causing it, all the lights work, just really fast blinking.

I got the same damn problem but have been to lazy to fix it or attempt to fix it but my problem is CONSANT ticking, unbelieveable. someone here told me its the multi function switch dieing and needs to be replaced, or something along those lines, oh well, the ticking demons haunt me still.

Interesting, did you check the turn signal bulbs to make sure they work?

my car did this once before too. i took out the taillight bulbs and noticed that one of my taillights was filled with water. the connection was just coming off and on when i would hit the brakes hard enough or accelerate hard enough for the water to slosh into the bulb connection. drilled a super tiny hole in the bottom of the light so it would drain, and cleaned off the bulb and voilla! no more ubber ticky.

(fyi, the car ticks faster when there is a break in the circuit, or that switch is broke, for those that dont know this common knowledge)
