Here is the problem:

The metal shelving was touching the trailor that was touching the S-10.  
The shelf transferred an American car disease that doesn't affect 
American cars, because they are immune to it due to prolonged exposure.  
The Audi had no such immunity and became infected.  OR...

When you hook up additional lights to a flasher circuit, as in the case 
of adding a trailor (no correlation to tralior experience BTW), the 
normal turn signals will flash very rapidly, I believe because of 
increased resistance in the circuit...ergo:

There could be increased resistance in the given turn signal circuit, not 
enough to blow a fuse, but maybe a weak wire, that is causing the flasher 
to flash more rapidly.  Check the wires, particularly the ones on the 
given side, that might have been crushed/broken/maimed by the falling shelf.

Note: the part about the transmission of disease was the Anthropologist 
in me speaking.  Maybe the engineer types on line can support the 
legitimate answer?
