Default turn signals flash like strobes

I have a 94 ram 2500 and the turn signals on both sides flash like strobes. All four corners work but but flash extremely fast. Indicator lights inside truck flash as fast as exterior lights. when i turn on the 4 way hazards all four corners flash at normal speed. Any help would be great. thanks

Your flasher relay is faulty, hence the quick blinking.

1+ check the relay. If you think its bad you can swap out one of the other relays in the box to check it.

I'm not sure about our trucks, but I know on my grand prix I used to have there were two flasher relays. One for the standard turn signal usage and the other one was specifically for the hazard lights. I would check the flasher relay. Rather than buying a new one right away you could just swap the two that you have and see if the problems switches over to your hazards.

Some might think that "hemi orange" grill inserts are "****ing stupid!!" but if thats what you like then thats cool. If thats what he wants to do with his flashers then let him. To each his own.
