    I recently removed my bumper because I got long travel. My battery was disconnected for about a week and a half because we were welding. Currently the fog lights aren't plugged in, but I doubt that is why.

    My driver side blinker blinks really fast and the front bulb doesn't blink. The back one does however. The passenger side blinks at the normal rate. Any ideas?

    Either your front bulb is blown or its not plugged in all the way.

    The back blink fast because the front one isn't working. Get the front one working (either replace the bulb or make sure it's plugged in well) and they'll both go back to the normal rate.

    when a blinker isnt working, the blinking sound is really fast to alert you. Its kind of like a check engine light for blinkers. i doesnt mean the blinkers that are working are blinking really fast. Go to autozone and pick up some synthetic blinker fluid and you're good to go :thumbsup:

    I prefer Royal Purple's blend. They formulate it to blink in temps from -20*F to 140*F.

    Just check your bulb. I bet one or both of the filaments is out.

    I did, but only to find another ridiculous item that does not exist...kinda like the good ole pipe stretcher.

    On another note, it wasn't plugged in. Never will I leave it up to my roomate to plug my head light in. No wonder the passenger side worked..I put that one back on.
