today i was driving when i hit a pretty hard bump on the road and my left blinker started to blink real fast like i lost a bulb or something. so i went and replaced the front dirctional bulb but it still does the same thing? the real bulb is fine.
is there any bulbs that i should check to or maybe it could be some thing interinal.

thanks

true that, if one bulb is out, the other will go insane.

sounds like loose wiring and hwen you hit the bump it moved it and now its shorting... any aftermarket wiring on the car? also try replacing the blinker switch. does it do it on both sides?

the only after martket wireing is the CD plaer and speakers, but those have nothing to do with the lights. it only does it on the left side.

Mine does this occasionally too... only on the left side. When it happens, the indicator for 'License Plate' lights up on the overhead check console. Since this only happens maybe once every two months or so, it's been impossible for me to track down the cause. I'll be running through all the bulbs and electrical wiring in general this summer so if I find it, I'll let you know!
