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.

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.

If you go to Wal - Mart, I'm sure you wont spend more than five dollars, give or take, that's where I went when I replaced mine. That was well over a year ago, so I can't be for sure though.

Replaced it last night, thanks everyone.
It was $2.49 (for 2) at K-Mart, and of course I bought the wrong bulbs - I got the ones with the round connector as opposed to the rectangular slotty type ones.
So I had to go back and exchange them (and pay an extra 50 cents).
I considered replacing both bulbs at the same time, but I figured I could just leave the other new one in my glove compartment.

My next thing to do is figure out why my brakes are squeaking.
When I get to LA tomorrow noght, I'll see what I can do about getting new brake pads and changing the oil while I'm at it.

I've never done either, and I know chaging the oil is doable by just about anyone, but what about brake pads? I'll probably just end up having a shop nearby do both.

I have done the brakes and oil myself, the oil I did with a lift at my school though, and I have done the brakes with and without a lift, and they are quite simple. My recommendation unless you have access to a lift, is do the brakes yourself and pay for the oilchange, or find somwhere that may have some deal for both.
