just bought my 02 ss a month or two ago. ive noticed the turn signal blinks really slowly. there is a line lock on the car. could the wiring of the line lock possibly affect that? i dunno how he wired but i didnt know if that would be the culprit or not. any ideas on what it could be?

Mine blinked realllyyyy slowly. You probably just need a new turn signal clicker thing.. i forget what it's called, capicitor or something? They're cheap.

check the lights themselves, sometimes if a bulb is out, it will do that.

prolly just need a new flasher, they are usually a cube or cylinder metal near the fuse box a little smaller than a golf ball.

Nah. You just need to change your blinker fluid. It is recommended that you change it every 150,000 blinks.

If both sides are doing the same thing (blinking slowly) then it's probably the turn signal flasher. The flasher is a small cylinder about an inch in diameter and about the same in height. It is clipped to the back side of the dash panel just to the right of the opening when you remove the knee panel under the steering column. It is a standard 2-prong flasher that is available at any parts store (even WalMart) for just a couple of bucks.

Now, if only one side has the problem then the flasher isn't the cause (because both sides use the same flasher). In that case you've probably got a bulb burned out on the side that doesn't work.

How slow is it? I mean compared to most cars F-Bodies do blink a bit slower... (at least my opinion)

I have a 2001 SS with the same problem only on the driver side it blinks slow. Haz light blinks normal. on both sides. I'm thinking it's the flasher.

Now, if only one side has the problem then the flasher isn't the cause (because both sides use the same flasher). In that case you've probably got a bulb burned out on the side that doesn't work.If only the left side has a problem then the problem is one of the bulbs or sockets on the left side - not the flasher.
