What causes an indicator to flash at double the normal speed? I'm perplexed...

ifone of your globes is blown. the rest will often flash quicker than normal. Definitely worth walking around the car and checking they are all working.

It'll either be a globe as mentioned, or if you have a trailer plug the connections in that may not be touching. open it and clean it up a bit.

Dont be a a***. you didnt say you got out of your car and looked at your globes did you?

Yes, either one of ur blubs have gone bye bye, or one of ur fuses have.
Get someone to stand behind car n check all lights n front as well, if u have no blown globes then check your fuses to see if there dead.

Well, this thread really showed me how many w@nkers there are on this forum. I posed the original question because for some unknown reason (and all in one day) my fuel pump died, my CD player stuffed up, one headlight blew and who knows what else might be stuffed that I haven't found yet - so from my point of view it could have been anything, especially since as it turns out, my car has a smartbar and therefore two indicators at each front corner - so from inside the car it appeared that they all worked, but indeed one of them has blown. As well as everything else.
Of course I did get out and check all the lights while replacing the headlight globes - this is how I discovered the blown indicator.
While I can appreciate the well-intended advice of some people here, the rest of you can go f*ck yourselves for being so rude. I've got everything fixed now, no thanks to you.

and there my friend is the proof that you are a bigger wanker then every one.

you didn't give any info at all about your problem. How do you expect people to be able to give good advice with no information?

and with attitude like that, i'd be shocked if you ever get any help from here again
