Fast blinking indicators?

Ok so sometimes when i use my left signal to change lanes it will flash really fast. I know they are supposed to do this when a headlight or tail light is burned out, but i checked and when it does this both my headlight and tail light are working normally, just flashing extra fast. Is this something to do with the wiring some how? Its only on the left indicator, and it doesn't do it all the time. But when it does it, it will do it for a while, then just go back to normal and then act normally for a while again.

Any help appreciated.

it doesn't mean that its burned out. it means its on its way to being burned out. but in my moms 2006 fusion her signal lights started flashing quickly and so we replaced all the bulbs but no fix. we had to put a new Computer in it and it fixed it.

Do you have aftermarket sequential turn signals? Mine started doing this, wiring harness ended up being bad.

Try replacing the bulb.

If no fix then replace the flasher.
It's right behind the center console next to the gas pedal

Bulbs are brand new. And I'm at camp and won't see my car for 9 weeks so I'll have to do it then.

Assuming everything is stock(harnesses,bulbs-non leds,flasher,etc)
I'd check the dimmer switch
