Beck & Masten Buick GMC will discover what is making your turn signal blink rapidly.

The second you jump in your car, you’ll be able to tell if something feels different while driving around. Whether it’s unusual smells, performance ability, or the general feeling of the vehicle on the road, you’ll quickly feel that something has changed since you were last in your car. In this case, you’re preparing to make a left turn, and you see your signal to turn is blinking faster than usual. This is where a list of different causes could be the main cause of the turn signal blinking so quickly. There could be a number of reasons, anything from bad wiring throughout your vehicle, a burnt-out bulb being used, or you could be using custom LED headlights that aren’t right for the vehicle to use. We will help you through the process of figuring out why your turn signal blinker is flashing faster than usual and how to get them fixed.

This cause isn’t as simple as the other reasons mentioned previously, but solving this can help prevent more problems from happening inside your car. No matter if it’s faulty wiring creating issues for the turn signals circuit or a lack of power, these could bring about similar issues. However, in most situations, this turning signal problem may be the first warning of a bigger issue your vehicle may be having. In the end, it’s better to bring your vehicle to our service department and have our service technicians look at the issue.

The Turning Signal Lightbulb Has Burned-Out

The Lightbulb Has Burned-Out

One of the main causes of a faster-than-normal turn signal might be a burned-out lightbulb on that side. A burnt-out lightbulb could be an important part of an annoyingly excessive flashing turn signal blinker that doesn’t stop because the burnt lightbulb is sending an irregular current in the system. While you can see if the two turn signals are flashing faster than usual. However, it’s probably better to bring it to our service department to let our service technicians have a look at it and solve this problem.

The Aftermarket LED Headlights Aren't Compatible

Added Incorrect Customized Headlights and Taillights

If you’re a car enthusiast that loves to personalize different parts of your vehicle, you might buy car parts that aren’t suited for your car, this might cause many issues.
