You have a bulb out. Just change all the bulbs on the side that is flashing fast.
So I have a Ford Focus 1999 T-Reg.
When I indicate, on one side it goes "click. . . . click. . . . click. . . .click" but then on the other it goes "click click click click", kinda twice as fast. Sorry, I know that is fairly lame, but you will (surely?) know what I mean. The question is, what causes it?
I have read (on another forum) that it means one of the bulbs have gone. That is fair enough, I just hope it is the front one However, further down the post it says perhaps a fuse is blown? I haven't investigated very much as I have had a lot of work on recently, but when I put on my warning lights, it flashes as normal, so it only faults when indicating.
Is there something I can check and fix rather than taking it in to the garage?

Is it really?
Like jeavis stated, one of your indicator bulbs is out. This is a feature designed to advise you of a fault in the system. Just check which one it is and change it out yourself. You should be able to find the 'bulb change' section in the manual and follow along. Takes less than 5 mins to replace.
This only works when you use the indicators and will behave normally when the hazard lights are used.

Is it really?
This happened on our shitold Yugo and pretty sure is has no such features
We thought it happened due to the power being allocated too much on one side since the other side was dead..
