Yes, but it's true.
Its a warning/safety measure.
When one of your bulbs are broken, the other bulbs will blink twice as fast to compensate for the broken one, so other drivers can see it easier. It also lets you know that one of your bulbs is broken. Now if all your indicators are broken, you use the funny hand signals...
I recently switched to LED indicator lights and the computer detects it as a broken light cause it only uses up less than 1w compared to the standard 5w filament bulb. You need to buy a flasher unit to stop it from happening.
It's a voltage thing. The timing of the blinker is determined by the flasher unit and the total resistance in the circuit. As parts age, the speed will change. Blowing a bulb changes the resistance, increasing the blink rate.
lol nah i dont think thats my friend
We have a BINGO!
LMAO!!! ^^^ .........................
My Explorer Sport signals at a slow speed, my POS designed but very reliable Toyota Previa blinks super fast.
...LOL A Toyota Previa? Jeez i dont remember the last time i heard about that haha.
yes, that's it.
Yea, it's ugly as hell but an extremely reliable and cheap mini van.
Do you find yourself feeling the need to pull over at every gas station? Just curious, maybe it does have something to do with the blinker rate.
