2005 Spectra5 Fast turn signal
Just purchased a 2005 Kia Spectra5. Wouldn't you know, after a week of driving, the left turn signal blinks twice as fast as normal. Checking outside of the vehicle, both front and rear signals illuminate, but are much dimmer than the correctly functioning passenger side.
Doing a forum search, I saw it suggested that this could be a ground/current issue. Thus far I've:
Replaced all four turn signal bulbs (front, rear, drivers and passengers), cleaned the battery contacts, and cleaned both ground contacts where the wiring harness is bolted to the hood.
I've also noticed that the headlamps do not illuminate until the car is cranked. I'm not sure if this another symptom of the problem, or just normal operation for the vehicle.
Any other ideas as to what I can do to narrow down the issue? Thanks!
