Icon5 Blinker problem?

Hey everyone I just have a quick question about the blinkers, my left side is blinking faster than my right but all of my lights are working, they all have light. So what could be the problem?

Re: Blinker problem?

Disconnect and reconnect the bulbs, then recent your ECU and see if that helps

Re: Blinker problem?

Are they a dual-filament bulb? If so, one of the filaments may have burned out which could cause that, and you might just be seeing the other still-working filament lighting up.

X2^^… or your flasher could be signaling you that you need to get a new one.

If you've ever observed a flashing bulb on a Christmas tree it's a similar process your flasher uses.
Electricity is sent to the bulb. Bulb filament gets warm, reaches certain point where in a Christmas tree bulb the filament bends away from it's contact point to remove contact and therefore break the circuit. When it cools the metal straightens back to it's original shape, which in turn contacts the other side cre-creating the circuit flow. Your flasher does a similar trick internally.

If a filament in your bulb is out the current to the second bulb never performs a circuit. The current flow never occurs in the 'dead' filament portion of the bulb. This would signal your flasher to cycle closed/open/closed more frequently due to the change in demand on the flasher thereby causing the contact to be open and closed sooner.

It's a marvelous invention, the flasher. But yours is likely old and they only cycle so many times before failure occurs. And the bulb contains tiny metal 'cord' that heats and cools with each current flow cycle. It gets brittle in time. Sometimes a bump causes the tiny wire to fracture. But usually it's that "one-too-many" circuit flows that burns or breaks the wire.

I just stayed at a holiday inn express.

Pretty much got flamed for driving like a jackass and was told to slow down. And I'll be damned, slowing down fixed it.
