fast blinkers

All my lights work, the only problem is the blinkers are fast. I have the correct flasher (552) but maybe it needs to be replaced.
Oh yea, my courtesy lights are on all the time, bulbs are out right now,could this be connected somehow?

Thanks, John

Re: fast blinkers

Try replacing the flasher with a heavy duty one.

Re: fast blinkers

Most likely that's a 4-way emergency flasher.

Re: fast blinkers

Turn signals flashing fast is a sign of worng bulb(s) 32 watts each, or broken bulb, or wrong flasher. Park/turn (front) for a '67 is 1034, rear turn/park/stop are 1157. Indicators are included in the circuit also, 194. So you have to have the load, three bulbs per side, to have a std flasher work correctly. The more total wattage of the lamps, the faster the flasher flashs. As suggested, a heavy duty or trailer flasher flashs at a predetermined rate, regardless of load, up to six bulbs.

Interior lights, ORG is power. White wire to door switches is ground to complete circuit. Be sure headlamp switch is turned CCW to turn off manual dome light. Full CW headlamp switch turns on dome light with doors closed.

Turn signal flasher is metal case by steering wheel. Four way flasher is plastic and plugs into fuseblock.
