Right Turn Signal Acting Weird!

Both signals work fine, except occasionally the right signal will operate at a normal rate then start flashing about twice as fast. Then it slows back down to a normal rate. Has anyone experiienced this phenom? Thought I would ask before I start trouble shooting.
Thanks in advance.

Check for a right side bulb being out. If front and rear ts bulbs ok, check flasher. If flasher ok, check for electrical short circuit.

Thanks guys! I was thinking one of the bulbs could be shorting occasionally causing the problem.

Since the problem is intermittent, it's definitely not a fuse. Such problems are normally from a corroded or dirty bulb socket, or the bulb socket is not getting a good solid ground connection.

It's called fast flash and is mandated by FMVSS (Fed Motor Vehicle Satefy Standards) to indicate to the operator that a bulb is burnt out. Could be intermitent, could be front, rear, side flashers. Just depends on the flasher system. Look at the side that does not do this and not which bulbs flash. When it does happen on the other note, leave it going and then check out which one(s) are not flashing. That's the one needing replacement. Care on replacing the bulb with the same on as some manufacturers use resistance(current draw) to determine outage conditions. Just my 2 cents.

I keep an assortment of bulbs including 1157s. I will try to stop procrastinating and get it solved tomorrow!
Thanks!
