Default Possible electrical issues?

I experienced some hiccups for the past 2 weeks. Number one: My left turn signal goes too fast. It only happens occasionally. I'd say...1/10 times. I checked both bulbs, they are both blinking. The front left may be a little week but it's definitely still alive.

Second, the radio sometimes cuts out and turns off. It happened once when I just turned on the car, the radio kept turning on and off abruptly (lost power) over and over until I turned the car on and off. The second time it happened was when I turned the car off, but kept the key in the ignition to keep power to the radio/lights. It did the same thing described before.

The radio is custom installed, by me, but I did it right. Cables are tied tight and covered well in electrical tape. Radio functioned fine for about 7 months before this.

I know these cars (95-99 Sentra's) are notorious for electrical issues, but I hope I'm not dealing with something annoying here.
Family Cars: (Bold is mine).
