Rapid Left Turn signal

Just started happening this morning, I've seen it on other cars on da road. Basically whenever engaged the left turn signal will go crazy @ around twice the pace it normally does. I tested the right and all is good! Already replaced the #32 15A fuse on da dash box and still no go... However i forgot to disconnect the batt & reset the ecu b4 replacing the fuse, should i try again? If that doesn't work then is it just a matter of replacing the bulb? (btw the inhoused headlight yellow signal, left side marker bulb, and the interior display left indicator are all affected) Any help would be awesome

you have a blinker out on your left side, check it, just turn on the car put it on the left blinker and go on your left side checking the lights. the one that isnt flashing is your problem, go to your local car shop and get ya a bulb!

great stuff guys.. i checked the brake lights this morning and low and behold the left one wouldn't signal or lite up at all whenever i engaged the brake pedal. The only remaining life on that rear left side is wen i turn on my headlights and both my rear lamps will be on like normal, but again when i brake only the center + right lite up. I actually had that same brake light stop working for me about a half year ago but i cured it with changing out the fuse (i forget the #, may have been 42). It never made the left turn signal go crazy though, maybe its time for a new bulb. anymore suggestions would be great, btw what part # and price range am i looking @? thanx

You need a new bulb.
It's a dual filament bulb.
1 is for the brake light (which is also used for the turn signal), and 1 is for the running light (when your headlights or parking lights are on)
Obviously, the brake/turn filament is burned out.

Nope AutoStores are the best for the bulbs.

I find Wal-mart has the identical bulbs (Same brand, blister pack, and UPC code) for about 10-20% cheaper. Just a couple of days ago, I replaced my front turn signal (3157A I believe) and Autozone was selling them for $5.99 a pair, and Wal-mart at $5.29 a pair.
