I had the same problem with units I bought at an autojumble. And it took me 
just as long to sort it.!!

A few days ago, I posted a request for ideas on where to look for bad 
etc. that would cause LH turn signal to flash very slowlly compared to RH,
and to slow down even more when electrical accessories (headlights, brakes,
wiper motor) were switched on.

After considerable searching with and without my multimeter, I found my
problem: the front signal bulb!  Apparently it was the wrong 
It worked, but was not allowing enough current flow.  It was not a corrosion
problem either since wire brushing the base of the bulb did not help.
Swapping bulbs instantly corrected the problem.

One day I'll learn to check the easy things first!
