Recently my left indicator has started to flash at about twice the speed of the right one. Any ideas why. I've got a 2005 focus

So kelfoan, where do you think you should be checking first to resolve this problem :)

Just for a little explanation, if one bulb blows on an indicator circuit it decreases the load on the flasher circuit and makes them flash quicker. it's a natural side effect of how they work but also is a handy warning that a bulb has blown.
A bulb that is not one of the right side has blown.
you have a bulb s h a g g e d out!!
I reckon that one of your lamps has blown, it can't be a bulb as you plant them in the ground....
Good response Disco, bulb is a popular misnomer for a lamp!
