Weird sympton/blinkers

Ok...so ALL four blinkers work.

However, they are flashing fast (like there's a bulb out)

WTF?

EDIT: Sorry for Typo in Subject line.

what year, had the same trouble on a friend b4000 2000. After looking at the evident cause (light burned), tried my flasher relay in his truck. Turned out the relay was bad.

Did you change your bulbs to LEDs, that may cause the problem, special flasher needed for LEDs.

Since it is all lights then there has to be a common cause.

As stated check the Flasher Unit in the Fuse Panel.
