    you should find and print yourself a wiring diagram for the turn signals. just trace the wire back because your rear blinkers working meaning everything should be fine but the wire going to the front blinker.

    are you sure you got the correct bulb for the one you changed?

    that or take it out and re-insert it, may not be making a good contact.

    I've had a similar problem once in the past on another vechicle. The problem turned out to be the bulb that was blinking faster than normal, it had a short in it. Try swapping the bulbs to the other side to eliminate them as the cause.

    You mentioned it happened after you installed the hid.??

    you may have lost a ground, pulled a wire, nicked a wire, etc.

    the point being the blinker worked prior to hid, so something may have happened.

    may have to get a multi-meter and check grounds and for voltage
