Hows the alternator, belts etc. On our Big Ford the signals were getting slow when the battery was under heavy load, heater, headlights, wipers.

The belt was slipping "just enough" that the battery wasn't getting the full charge so there wasn't the capacity to run everything all at once.

Flashers are easy to replace and cheap enough, but if that ain't were the trouble lies ??
