PowerWheels86 is an unknown quantity at this point
yeah make sure that the bulb is in all the way and there aren't any bulbs out... people do that in my city.. apparently those rice boys think that if their blinkers flash fast then maybe their car will "be" faster...

the reason it is blinking faster is cause your putting another load in parralle with the headlight blinkers, you need to put in a resistor in the circuit to bring it back to the same load. im not sure what size resistor it would take, but it could be calculated.
