Right side signal lights flash fast

When signaling a right turn the signals flash at "normal" speed for two flashes then they flash very quickly until turned off. I have a number of people tell me that I must have a bulb out but the work fine is there something that can be done to remedy this. Vehicle is a 2008 XE AWD

Re: Right side signal lights flash fast

Apologies for being repetitive - have you checked both front and rear turn signals? Do your side view mirrors have turn signals on them and if so are they working?

Does the car have OEM rated bulbs in it - ie no LED or incorrect wattage bulbs substituted? Any recent electrical work done (stereo, alarm system etc)?

Another thing it could be is the multi function switch itself. On a 2000 Alero I previously owned the turn signals would go crazy like this and it was a known issue with the switch.

My '07 does this when a bulb is out.
