    My dad had the same problem with his 86 accord. Do not really know any solutions except to buy one of those things ricers use alot to speed up or slow down there blinker.

    One of your bulbs is out (most likely) or your flasher module is fried (less likely). Check all your signals to make sure the bulbs are good, and if those are all working, try replacing your flasher module. It's located in the in-car fuse box below your steering column... and costs about $10 at Auto Zone.

    the flasher is on the fuse pannel under the steering wheel. The fuse pannels has a list of everything on the fuse board.

    It also looks like a little black plastic square shaped module, about 1 inch square...

    this could definatly cause it ...
    also the fried blinker module could make your lights do anything it feels like ... its the God of your blinkers ... a fucked up one can cause them to blink fast, slow, not at all, sometimes, in morse code signaling to other blinker modules that the time has come for them to take over the world, etc.... :) faulty blinker modules could be the end of us all... so get the right bulbs then if that doesnt fix it get the module replaced :)
