hyperflashing is caused by a bad bulb, a bulb that's about to go out, or a loose bulb

some times also when a light is dual purpose, like a turn signal and brake light. if one part of the two functions is broken or burnt, it'll do this. replace that bulb if it's not loose or if it doesn't right itself after being tightened.

10$ says it's a bulb issue, what probably happened was the filliment in the bulb got caught on one of the other things, and it's a shorter piece of wire now, which causes less load, and a faster blink, they will all still work, but blink faster

Also check your muffler bearings. They are directly wired to the fluid sensors and sometimes throw codes pertaining to the blinker fluid being low. Don't overfill it though, you'll risk seizing the flux capacitor.
