Question PLEASE HELP! Turn Signal Problem

I have a 99 ford ranger. My left blinker blinks fast (like I have a bulb bad), right blinker blinks fine......Bulbs are good, Both front and back blinkers blink, I have pulled front and back blinker bulbs, flipped them, replaced them. cleaned wiring terminals. On the other hand, Hazzard lights both blink just fine. have searched for the flasher, no luck, even tho i dont think that could be it because my right blinker blinks on time. I got a ticket yesterday because of this, which isnt right because the blinker on the left does blink. Just blinks fast. Any help you guys could give me would be greatly appreciated. Thanks fellas!

Not to be a jerk, but the different color sentences are bad for the eyes, very hard to read, and unnecessary. Glad that you were able to solve the issue.

That's probably why nobody replied to the first one.

I have the same problem both blinkers blink fast but when my hazards are on they blink normal. I checked and wiring seems to be fine, no blown fuses and the bulbs are good........I dont know where to go from here.

Replace the flasher next.

Try repositioning your steering wheel. Sometimes the wiring connection to the blinker toggle switch can get "stretched" and not connect correctly.

I have same exact issue. Both side blinkers blink fast. On hazards they're normal. So more than likely it's the flasher relay?? So I can go buy one
