Could left turn signal would go on 'fast blink' often, and on occasion work only 'manually', and then sometimes not at all. Did this for a year; I cleaned the socket and put in a new bulb, (knuckle buster). It worked ok for awhile...then started the above mannerisms again. When I was into my Indie for other stuff I had them change the turn signal relay.

If yours works for awhile/forever, great. But, I suspect it will glitch again sooner or later. A new relay harness will cure it, imo.
