Replace the flashers with electronic ones.

Yup. Replace the electronic flasher relay in the fuse block under the dash. Its the round thing in the bottom corner. If you so have led bulbs. You need an led compatible flasher relay.

I've got the same problem in my 96! Just never got around to fixing it. Let me know where you get yours from.

Mine blinks normal for 3 flashes, then blinks fast for about 10 seconds, then repeats. Crazy. I figured the flasher is getting weak, but haven't got around to replacing it. It still shows up fine at night. If someone finds a solution, please post. in the meantime, I'll try to pick up a new heavy duty flasher

Mine just flashes really fast but if I have it on for too long, it'll just stay lit and stop flashing. Then i have the choice of not using it at all or having to make it flash by manually turning it on and off multiple times lol. Gets pretty annoying.

More then likely all flasher issue. Replace it and be done with it.
