Well after chasing a front turn signal issue for a couple of weeks I finally solved it and thought I'd share both the issue and fix.

Had the fast flash issue and traced it to the front bulb, I thought. Pulled the bulb and saw it was good after having replace it. It would flash correctly for a day or two then would go back to no flash. Thought it was the socket or wiring and after playing the game of wiggling and shaking and swapping bulbs around. I took a good look at the contacts in the socket. There was pitting in the primary contact - so a little cleaning and a little prying to add extra pressure on the bulb and alls well again.

So I hope this helps others with intermittent flasher issues.

Yeah, I had the same problem once with my old '02. Also using some dielectric grease on the base of the bulb will help prevent any recurrence of the corrosion and pitting.
