Blinker clicks too fast

My right blinker ticks too rapidly, the left mirror wiggles, and the mirror switch doesn't seem to work and swivel the right and left mirrors.
Experienced mechanics share their insights in answering this question :
The blinker issue is likely a burnt out bulb or a flasher relay. You can turn on your flashers/hazards to verify bulb operation. If all the bulbs work then you may need a new flasher relay.

A left mirror wiggle will likely mean that a mirror replacement will be needed. The lack of control of the mirrors is likely related to the mirror wiggle. However, you may just have a bad fuse or a switch.

If you need help with any of this, I would have a certified mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, come to your home or office to inspect your mirror and diagnose your blinker problem.

How to Identify and Fix Common car Problems ?

LEDs will make the vehicle think a bulb has gone out, due to lower power draw. This causes a “hyperblink,” or fast-blinking turn signal, which can be corrected with LED Resistors or an LED Flasher. The most basic, tried-and-true method to correct hyperblinking is to add resistors.
If the turn signals light up, but do not flash, it is time to replace the flasher. If there are no turn signals on either side, check the fuse as it may be defective. Another problem is both turn signals on one side not working. This could indicate bad bulbs or bad ground in both housings.
A bad bulb is by far the most common reason that a signal blinks faster. This is because a bad bulb alters the resistance in a circuit, sending a different current through the blinker. To figure out if this is the issue, test all signal lights to see if any bulbs are visibly out.
It is usually located under the driver`s side of the dash, and is wired in-line with the turn signal lever and hazard switch buttons.
One of the biggest causes of a faster-than-normal turn signal blinker might be a burned-out bulb for that one side. A burned-out lightbulb could be an important cog of an annoyingly excessive blinking turn signal blinker that doesn`t stop because the burnt lightbulb sends an altered current through the system.

Front blinker issues. Blinkers work but flashing fast. Front blinkers are on but don’t flash when headlights are on.
ANSWER : Hi, thanks for writing in. It seems that the new bulbs that were put in most likely were not the correct bulbs. If the bulb has higher resistance than it should or improper grounding can cause the light to flash too fast. I recommend having the bulbs checked and the ground checked.

ANSWER : Hello there. A crank but no start is a very common problem on your 2003 Honda Accord. Many faults can cause this but the first one to rule out would be the battery, a load test must be performed to check the voltage, cranking amps, and battery condition to make sure it is capable of starting the car. Other common faults are the battery terminals, starter, battery cables, ignition switch, fuel pump, or fuel filter.

Constant clicking noise from flasher or blinker when neither of them are on
ANSWER : I do not think the issue is your blinker at all, but the A/C blend door or temperature door electronic actuators are clicking. Try to change the A/C from vent to floor or defrost and see if noise changes or try to move temperature from cold to hot and see if noise changes when the A/C is on. If you notice a change when either of these are changed then that actuator is bad and needs replaced. If you are still having trouble pinpointing the noise, a qualified professional from YourMechanic can come to your car’s location to diagnose the noise and assist with repairs.

Rhythmic clicking in dash after blown HVAC fuse replaced
ANSWER : Hello. Most of the time this clicking noise is coming from one of the air door actuators in the dash. When the actuator fails, it cannot find the right position and will continually move causing this noise until it finds the correct position. I usually need to take the dash partially apart to find the location of the noise. If you need to have this clicking noise in the dash checked, consider having a technician from YourMechanic come to your home or office to diagnose the noise and make the necessary repairs.

Metallic click sound when putting car in drive or reverse from park, and another click (sometimes) when making a turn.
ANSWER : You may have damaged the axle or strut. I would have the entire front inspected and have the clicking diagnosed. When anyone hits something hard enough to pop a tire there is most likely damage to some component in the area where it was hit. A visual inspection may or may not identify the problem, but a good mechanic can road test and hear the sound and should be able to pinpoint the cause of the clicking noise and recommend a repair.
