describe what its doing, same for left and right?

Quite possibly a flasher relay starting to fail but more symptoms will help diagnosis

you got to be kidding, they won't repair it, go buy a universal flasher relay and plug it in yourself.

You may want to check the ground for the turn relay as well. I donít know the location in the Sport - in the 1.6 itís just above the fuse panel under the dash.

A bad bulb will cause slow flashing also.
What are the odds you will have a bad bulb on two sides at the same time?
A zillion to one, but I have seen it.
I found a front bulb and a rear bulb diferent sides bad bulbs.
Just replace them all to save yourself from needing to do it again shortly.
Yes, a generic flasher.
It would be a good time to go LED's, more light is a good thing.
If you do remember to do the center brake, dash lights, interior overhead and backup lights plus a flasher for LED's.

Did both of mine and the truck, I like em!

Manufacturers safety specs mandated that a blown lamp shall cause a fast flash, post about 1990. Most countries adopted this around this date as well.

If its an ancient bi metallic unit then a blown lamp will cause a slow flash, but as far as I know, these units had the "internally compensated" version that went fast if a lamp blew.

Default Slow turnsignals

They still work, just slow. So I would check the connections, make sure tight and clean. Check grounds. Check what the battery voltage is and if the charging system is putting out the correct voltage.

the blinker relays do die, they are a mechanical device and have a finite life, its got to be getting towards 20-25 years old
