perhaps you not getting the amount of current needed to activate the flasher fast enough,or your flasher is located in a place where it gets too cold, you may try changing the flasher or insulating it.'''here's how a flasher works.'''

the flasher contains a bi-metal strip and a heating element. when the heating element warms up the bi-metal strip bends making contact, and allowing current to go the current goes thru the heating element cools down and breaks the circuit that's how you get the blinking effect.'''(all happens repeadedly in milliseconds)

Before replacing the flasher you should check the fuses inside the car and in the engine compartment including fuseable links, then check for voltage in the flasher connector with the switch on, it may be that your switch is the problem. Newer cars use lighting control modules which would be the next place to check.
