Blinker and hazard issue

Well my blinkers act like there is a bulb burnt out on both sides. They flash way too fast and my hazards do the same thing. I dont have any burnt out bulbs, i replaced the turn signal CB with a known good one. I thought maybe my TBC was messing with it since its plugged in to the factory plug but nothing. Any ideas for me? Thanks

Fuses? Led bulbs?

No led bulbs on my truck. I cant see it being a fuse since they work just not correctly

Wire short to ground will hyper-flash the system too. With the hazards/turn switch activated are any of the bulbs brighter or darker than the others? The fuse is bigger than the flasher unit so the flasher unit will cycle before the fuse burns.

Could you have bought a flasher with more flashes per min? I grabbed one that flashed more per min, so my flashers and hazards flash at different speeds.

By the way, hope this doesn't come off as I'm insulting your intelligence. More asking if a common mistake of grabbing a part in trying to get the problem fixed quick.

I catch mine around the drivers battery area or where the wiring bends up to the bulb at the rear of the bed. Check your pigtail for loose wires and nothing that would carry a current in the 7-way pin area.
