I can't view YT at work, but have you checked to see if you have a bulb out?

x3--It's very likely that it's something with the bulb. My B5 and my dad's Honda does this too, it's sort of a diagnostic thing.

Make sure that the bulb is both good, and touching the metal panel with the rest of the bulbs on it--usually the big panel goes in first, then the turn bulb.

Put your hazards (car can be off) on and check front and rear left bulbs to see if they are flashing. One will be out. The bulbs are dual filament, so the marker light function on that corner may still be working.

It blinks faster because of the change in load the circuit sees, since it is only lighting one bulb.
