Default Blinker Messed Up?

Hey, i was on my way home today and for some reason my right turn blinker goes way faster then the left one. The left one still blinks normally and the hazards blink at the same pace so i dont understand why the right turn is going alot faster. Any ideas? Thanks

One of your bulbs are out. Inspect all your lights. Have someone look at the rear of your car as you step on the brakes. Although a rear bulb lights up when you turn it on, there's a possility that one doesn't work when you step on the brake.

That's usually a sign of a burned out bulb or less likely
wire short.

Interesting cause from time to time I get the same thing, right one goes about 2x as fast as the left. Even more interesting is all of my bulbs seem to be perfectly fine?

That happened to me one time, and I checked and one
of the bulbs was out, I've also seen a lot of other stangs
with bulbs out and even the lights blink faster. If all your bulbs are
fine then its probably a short or something.

Well after a long nights rest the blinker is back to normal. Checked for the bulbs being out and there wasnt any so i guess it was just some kind of thing that happened Either way im still happy cuz now im not annoyed when i make a right turn

Sounds like you're low on blinker fluid, you should check it and top it off if necessary.

Has the car been in the rain? Maybe just washed? If so one of the connections probably got wet. If it happens again unplug the wires from the front and rear lights and look for moisture. If you do not find anything, check the wiring under the hood.

If the plug is corroded you will find a white powder at the connection. Clean it with a wire brush or maybe a toothbrush-then apply a dielectric grease. This will protect it and stop the corrosion.

Good Luck....
