Unhappy Turn signal clicking like mad

My turn signals and flashers work fine, but after I use them I hear a fast double-clicking for up to several minutes. Bulbs are okay.
Anything else to check?

Thanks,
HB

Back in the old days, in my cars, that used to mean the silver flasher box under the dash was going. Sometimes it was a small cylinder shaped, sometimes a box. I don't know what the D90 uses.

Flasher unit is behind the speedo panel. (I believe in all 90s)

If you hear the noise from behind there, the person that pointed out your flasher unit going bad was probably point-on.

Just my opinion ... mind you

Just trying to make sure I have it right.....

When you use them initially, they are fine. But after you turn, the thing keeps clicking rapidly for a few minutes? I would also suggest replacing the flasher unit.

If you need a flasher, I have a stock one I can spare.

After a really wet drive, the bulb would be fine but the bulb holder contacts break. Over the last year I most have bought 6 of them.

From the description it sounds like Dredd's is something else but I would know I had a shot holder when I heard the rapid blinking when I used my turn signal.

Correct Hans. The bulbs are all fine.

New flasher is on the way. Thanks for the offer Andrew.
