Most blinkers are reliant upon resistance for speed.... There is a small resistor that controls it (I don't know where it's at on your exact model) you can see this by simply removing a blinker light and watch the other one on the same side start blinking faster... So you need to figure out a way to decrease the resistance or get a different blinker switch thingy (how's that for technical jargon!)

your flasher in the steering column controls the rate of the blink. i dont think you should mess with it, any speed shop should be able to mess it up though.

9 out of 10 times when your lights blink really fast I swear it's a light out or a bad ground.... the last possibility is the blinker relay as far as I'm concerned... or on occasion it could be the wrong bulb...
