Yes under the hood, in the fuse box. All the relays in there are identical, just try to swap a couple of them to see if anything changes.

I had a similar issue a while back (it was the relay) and it was almost like double speed. You would see it on the front and back of the truck as well as the dash.

hard to describe exactly how fast. lets just describe the signals as the first flash is normal speed, the next about ten flashes go at about the rate it is when you have a bulb out. the remainder of the flashes can only be described as a feeling oh holy hit this thing is going to have a heart attach or explode or somthing. I have strobe lights and becon lights, but for a turn signal I am impressed

The easy way to accomplish this is to just pull out your front turn signal bulbs. They back ones will flash like crazy!

hah, kidding of course

Just have Johnyred send you his relay after he fixes his.
