Front turn signal not working

The front drivers side turn signal is not work all of a sudden. The rear and mirror turn signals still work though. The relay is is clicking but doing it faster then if I were to turn on the passenger turn signal. Any Ideas?

Never mind, for whatever reason it started working the right way again.

Ryan...this might be the sign of a bad bulb, I had one on a car one time that would work...then stop...then work again.

The bulb did not blow, but the filament actually broke and the two halves of the filament would make contact and then separate making it an intermittent problem. Drove me nuts until I finally changed the bulb and could see what was going on.

I went and checked the bulb and could find nothing wrong with it. I did swap the bulbs from the right side when it was doing it and it did not change anything. I dont care as long as it does not do it again.
