Have you tried jiggling your key in the ignition? Sometimes a loose ignition contact switch can cause funky things like that. Just a guess.

On my 94 f-150 my signal lights flash extremely slow. If they have been on for about a minute they almost come to a complete stop and longer after that they just stop flashing. All of my other lights work just fine so I dont think its a power issue. Anyone have any ideas?
