Left Turn Signal Blinks Twice As Fast

So I was driving today and while making aleft turn, I noticed the left turn singal was blinking twice as fast as it should have been. The signals (front and back), the interior indicator light, and the clicking noise, are all now twice as fast.

The right turn signal is still the same speed.

I don't think I did anything to cause this. Any help?

I saw this thread, and was wondering if anything mentioned here applied to me.

it more than likely means you have a bulb out. check all your signals and find out which one burned out. should fix it.

Yup, like everyone else said, it's going to be one of your lights, most likely in the rear since they are dual filament bulbs, just make sure you check turn signals and all on that one side.

It's a light burned out. Every car I know of does that when a turn signal burns out.

One of your lights is out. :)

Just put the blinker on in a parking lot and hop out of the car and check those lights on that side of the car.
