Strange Flasher/Turn Signal problem !!
Had my 04 Overland for a little while now and so far i'm loving it after coming from an 04 X5 4.8is. Never again !!!
Anyway this evening the car developed a small problem. The turn signals or indicators over here in the UK have started flashing faster than normal,i checked all the bulbs first and all were working fine. The emergency or hazard lights work fine and are at normal speed.
Can anyone shed any LIGHT :lol: on this for me ??

A burnt bulb or open circuit will increase the flash rate for the turn signals, but not the rate for the hazard lights. Is not one of the bulbs burning less bright then the others? Is the flash rate the same for left and right?

id say the flasher relay is starting to go bad.

Thanks for the input but i managed to find the fault eventually,there was a fault on the tow hitch electrics.

Good to hear you have found the LIGHT:lol:. Was there a short or something in the tow hitch electrics?

Re: Strange Flasher/Turn Signal problem !!
I don't know about the US but in the UK the original JEEP towpack electrics have a little microswitch mounted in the electric socket. I presume this is to disable the rear parking sensors when towing. But anyway this switch had somehow come apart. Hey presto,disconnect the microswitch and all is good,i don't even have parking sensors !!
