For the last few years, my 2011 Toyota Corolla's left turn signal shared the same blinking rate as the right side. This morning the left turn signal started blinking at a more rapid pace than the right side. What could the issue be?

    Welcome to the site. This used to be a sign one of the bulbs had gone out. Check ALL the bulbs on the left side to see if any of them has gone dark. Commented Jul 20, 2017 at 18:20

This usually means that one of the left bulb indicators has failed. Inspect front, rear and side indicators with the indicator stalk engaged in the left position and replace the offending bulb.

    Usually easiest to turn on the hazard lights rather than the turn signal, as you don't need to have the key in the ignition. Commented Jul 20, 2017 at 22:10
