How do you adjust the speed of the turn signals?

The speed of the turn signal flasher relay is directly related to the overall impedence of the system. If you want them slower, increase the impedance (resistors). If you want them faster, it's a little harder. The easiest way seem to be to use lower impedance bulbs - LED bulbs. There are also relay kits available on E-bay, but I wouldn't trust them.

:D I tried taking one out on each side but do to the fact that there is only one bulb that makes it a little difficult. Any other suggestions?

lol i was actually jokeing, when a bulb burns out thats a warning to fix it. (when the blinkers blink fast) On the other hand i have no idea what else you could do.

You cut what black wire? If I recall correctly, there are only 2 wires...so if you cut the black one, you killed one of your signals. ;)

If you want a faster blink, you can just put in some smaller bulbs in the back (or front)...like the reverse lights. Just swap the bulbs and the sockets from the reverse lights to the turn signals....might need a little modification to fit the turn signal housing, but it works. I did it before....my mother thought something was wrong, so I switched it back. :p

I actually cut my ground cable to both of my front turn signals.. cuz as i recall in the front there are 3 cable running to each signal...(one is ground one is power from lights and the other is the turn signal power)......but mine blink fast in the day time and at night when i turn the lights on they blink normal...but yeah it works and dont forget to tape up the ground cable and dont just let it sit there dangling...

are you sure your front signals are working???without the ground, I dont see how you're getting this to work. (I can almost see since the turn signal wire doubles as a ground wire, but if that's the case, both filaments are working durring signals and when your parking lights are on, and this is bad b/c the excessive heat is going to make your bulb holders melt).

tell me, when the lights are on, are you using both filaments at the same time all the time?

from what i have heard there is a "flasher". i can't remember the technical term but you can get one working at a lower resistance say you have one rated at 80 if you get one rated at 40 then it's twice as fast. I'll be honest in saying this might be manufactorer specific and totally not right at all but I think I remember it being something like that.
