Has anyone had any issues with their turn signals going fast while on. I have aftermarket headlights and was wondering how i would find the source of this issue because its not the lights. Its something with the wiring.

If the turn signal speed changed immediately after the headlight install, then its the headlight. If the signal speed changed after, there is a chance a bulb in that circuit is burnt out.

To further clarify, the turn signal relay in our Accords looks for a certain level of current flowing through the circuit. With aftermarket bulbs and headlights, they might use less current and the flasher relay thinks that a bulb is burned out so it flashes at double speed to let the driver know that there is a problem.

No I had it checked out the light worked on my friends accord, and it started before I installed my headlights. Had all the fuses checked multiple times and all my lights work.

If its a regular bulb and blink fast, it means one of the bulb is out. If it is LED turn signal bulbs, you need a resistor to stop the hyper flashing.
