Fast Blinking Turn Signals

Add resistance in series to the circuit. Make sure it's a power resistor also and not one of those little 1/4W ones...

The turn signals usually start to blink fast when the flasher is going bad.....don't know why you would want to do that....I was thinking it would be cool to mount some more lights to the reflector bar and have them blink in sequence......like the old Mercury Cougar I think it was.....

I like the sequential idea... very cool! My mom had a '68 Cougar, it was the car I learned to drive with. Had all the good stuff, manual steering, manual brakes, hand powered windows, levers under the dash to open the vents... oh yea, buy a high capacity flasher, one for towing, that usually makes the lights flash faster. Last time I bought one, I think it was $2 or $3.

Actually, the most common cause for flashers to flash rapidly is a burned out bulb, not a bad flasher...

i'm talking about the blinking like on rice burners. the turn signals blink fast az hell. I heard it could be done by doing something with the wiring of the cigarette lighter.

Why would anyone want to do that? Those "pulsating" lights drive me nuts.

Sorry kinda trolling here..but I'm really baffled.

Just replace all your turn signal bulbs with LED's and leave out the recommended resistor, they'll blink faster...But like everyone else above, I have to ask WHY????

I love chinese food, but I hate RICE!

My buddy just bought a Trep after seeing & driving mine & he wanted to do that with his. Thats why I asked. I told him not to but he's a ricer so he's going to do it anyways.
