Fast Turn Signal

2001 325ci. My drivers side turn signal likes to change from a normal flash speed to very fast and then back and so on. Does anyone have a thought on what to check for? None of the bulbs are burnt. Also, the drivers side tail lights seems to be less bright with the running lights than the passenger side. dont know if thats related. Thanks

Sounds like a loose wire or bad ground on one of the indicator bulbs. Does the flashing rate problem vary on whether or not other lights are turned on?
Are all the lights on the left side duller than the right, or is it just the tail lights? If its only the left tail lights I'd start by checking the wiring connection and earth of that assembly.
Let us know how you go.

i ended up installing LED taillights and that fixed it. must have been a short in the factory tail light.
