    Double-time turn signal

    Hey everyone,
    I had a weird thing happen this morning, in my 2005 9-5 Wagon.
    My right turn signal clicks at twice the usual speed.
    It didn't happen at first. I have a long commute by highway, and at first right and left were normal as I changed lanes etc.

    However, about halfway through, I noticed that on the right signal, it clicks twice as fast. I can't figure a knob or switch or similar that I might've knocked to make it so. Everything else seems OK.

    You've probably got a bulb out.

    You have almost certainly got a bulb out.

    Very unlikely as it is only on one side.
    Edit: Extremely unlikely given that there are no relays in the circuit.

    Thanks everyone! Was indeed the bulb. I ordered two replacements - only used the one. I can haz matching turn signals.
    It was v easy using household tools. First time I've wrenched . . .ever. I think even in college the most complicated thing I did was an oil filter change . . .and even that was done mostly by someone else showing me how it was done

    Good work, now, if you are running Windows, Google WIS and EPC and you can find a means to access the workshop manuals.

    They aren't available for Mac
