Replacing Flasher Relay
Since many folks have had fast turn signal flasher problems after replacing the stock signals I thought we needed a How-To in this forum. Maybe this will help the ones that don't know this easy fix; Here goes
First you will need to go to your local parts store (ie.autozone, napa or whatever is near you), pick up a EL12 flasher relay and some crimp-on connectors(female type, I used 14-16 gauge, 18-20 will also work)
As far as tools you will only need a 10mm socket, 4mm allen socket, ratchet and extension, a pair of electrical crimping pliers and some electrial tape.
Take your rear seat or cowl off, then remove the small plastic piece behind the seat, it's held by two 4mm allen screws, just lift up it slides out from under the seat.
Next remove the one bolt holding your seat on, it's a 10mm, the seat just lifts off.
The flasher relay is in the back of the area, it's a small black box with a rubber strap like thing on it
