Weird turn signal problem

Ok my turn signals work, and all the bulbs are good, BUT when I switch on the signal for a right hand turn, I get a fast blinking indication as if a bulb is out. Like I said before, though all the bulbs are good.

Suggestions?

Ohhh also what is the square red light on the back of the vehicle on the right side for.

The square light is a rear fog light as required in europe. Are you SURE all the bulbs work?

Interesting they require and extra "tail light" as it were in Europe? Where are the controls for it located?

Yep I just checked again and both the front and rear turn signal bulbs are good and lighting, albeit at the faster rate like a bulb is out.

Also where are all the fuze boxes on an OLDER 110 located?

It may be a bad connection, or the wrong bulb. Sometimes the bulbs with the gold base trip the system. I would start by making sure you have the silver based bulbs in there. Also, clean up the contacts in the sockets, and the connections where the sockets meet the harness.

Did you replace any bulbs when this started happening or did it happen spontaneously?

It is brighter than a normal taillight. Not sure where the switch is as I don't have one. The fuse boxes are under the hood and behind the panel down low in the middle of the bulkhead (the one with the two thumb screws)

Fog light switch is generally like the main headlight switch but on the other side of the steering column. It probably won't activate unless the headlights are on and please don't use it to improve the visibility of your truck in the rain as it just dazzles the card behind. They have the same brightness bulb as a brake light. I'm amazed that fog lights are not a requirement in this country!

Sounds like you may have a set of mismatched bulbs for the flasher unit. Both the bulbs and the older bi-metallic flasher units are sold as either regular or heavy duty. Regular bulbs with an HD flasher causes slow flashing. HD bulbs and a regular flasher cause fast flashing. LED's and old style flashers just don't flash at all.

Newer solid-state flasher units are based on a timer circuit, and don't give a damn about the bulbs.

Yeah or the relay is going, just put in a solid state one and save yourself potential headache down the road anyway, had no end of intermittent troubles on the tractor due to two selectively bad relays.

Thant sounds like a heck of idea, who has the solid state unit?
