I have an odd situation. I have a 2000 S10, and recently I noticed that suddenly my left turn blinker blinks real fast. Sort of like one of those hyper blinker things you can get put in. My right one still blinks at the normal speed. I haven't touched anything, it just started doing it on it's own.

Anyone know what could be causing this? It's not really a problem, but it does look odd to have one going faster than the other. It does look pretty cool going at that speed, and it'd be nice to have the other going just as fast =] Thanks for the help.

Well, my uncle-in-law (?) has a shop. I think I'll bring it in just in case and have it checked out.

Same thing happened to my 88 sdime. It was the relay for the blinker going bad. Just a couple of bucks fixed it. Hope it helps.

Eh;

That happened to me a few times, and ever time it was one of the bulbs on that side of the vehicle that was burnt out.

Sounds to me like all you guys need to check your blinker fluid. It's probably running low and causing your bulbs to overheat and consequently blow.
I know for sure mine blinker fluid is full. I check it every few fillups to be sure.

Have you tried switching to synthetic blinker fluid instead of the old Dino stuff? That helped mine.
