On my 2002 Wrangler SE the left turn signal has developed a new "feature." Starting a week ago, when I activate the left turn signal after the Jeep sat for a period the left green dash panel indicator arrow flashes fast for a couple of seconds (like when a bulb is burned out), but then it slows back to normal. The actual front left side amber marker and the front left turn signal outside blinked fast as well for a couple of seconds and then returned to a "normal" blink rate. The right turn signal works normally and does not start in the "fast" mode.
I also noticed that if I retry the left turn signal immediately again a 2nd and 3rd time the signals blink at a normal pace. However, if the Jeep sits for a while and then I start it, the left turn signal again blinks fast before slowing to a normal rate.
Is this possibly a flasher relay issue? I'm not sure if there are two separate tur signal flasher relays (possibly in the same metal container) since the right side seems OK.
If it is a flasher relay, where is it typically located on the 2002 Wrangler?
Thanks in advance.
