Ok,Last week I installed a remote start/keyless entry in my 95 suburban.My left turn signal now blinks faster than the right.I found a bad bulb on the left side and replaced all bulbs.All my wiring that I connected is right(took four damn days to get it right).I have checked all grounds and everything appears good.Do I need to get a heavy duty flasher and if so,what part number is it?

I'm not sure. When I had a blinker bulb go out in my truck, all I had to do is replace the bulb and it worked. I'm sure someone will chime in soon to help.

Just double check all your bulbs agian. Thats what I would think the problem is.

im not sure if the side marker would cause it, but i wouldnt rule it out if you havent checked it. it sounds like you wired something into your lights during your install. only thing i can guess is for some reason its causing your truck to think a bulb is out. like the resistance or something has been changed(or whatever the reason LEDs cause it). thats my not so educated guess.

WTF!! I just pulled the left rear taillight cover.The light works,but goes out if I wiggle it a little bit.I changed the marker lights also.The signal blinks fast even with the rear taillight unplugged(the whole unit ,not the bulb)
Do you think this is it or did I cross a wire on the remote start(I don't know how I could have though.It's only one wire that splices into the brown wire on the headlight switch).

My truck is a 95 as well, and that exact same thing happened to mine. I replaced the circuit board and everything is back to normal. That is definitely the issue.

edit: that is one of those things that just happened over time. It wasn't caused by wires being crossed. Those boards are not meant to last forever.

^^^^^^^^ there are 2 1/4" or 7mm screws holding a board to the back of each rear red plastic lamp, the board just has 3 sockets for each bulb, it is a pcb but there's not any active electronics or anything on it.


I had a dead rear signal last week, problem for me was a bunch of melted plastic inside the sockets the bulbs plug into on the circuit board.

all 3 holes on both sides had a bunch of melted plastic but it only caused a problem on the right turn signal.

I don't know where the plastic came from, the sockets themselves are plastic but they're not melted, they just have melted plastic inside them. I used a dental pick looking thing to get it all out.


edit: now I see the bulbs are supposed to have some type of plastic base to them.

mine don't it must have melted off and that's what the plastic was inside. Interestingly I had to buy a new bulb and it didn't have a plastic base at all, must have learned their lesson about that.

Merely a representation of the part.

Naturally you'll want OEM equipment.
