Normally, it means either the front or the rear bulb is burned out. If front and rear bulbs are good, and that means both lamp filaments in both bulbs are good. It could be the flasher, a bad ground, a bad bulb socket, or the turn signal switch.

2000 taurus left turn signal flashes rapidly and the left rear turn signal lamp does not work. Does ford have burned out bulb sense circuit that would give this indication? The right side flashes normally.


Yes - the fast flashing is a warning that a bulb is burned out. Change the bulb (be careful to put it in the same as the old one as it probably is 2 bulbs in one , parking and turn/stop) and you should be fine.

My left turn signal goes too fast when i want to make a left turn but my right turn signal is fine... how do i make the left one normal again?


Replace the burned out bulb. It is flashing fast to alert you that bulb is burnt out. Turn on the side that works properly & note all bulbs flashing in front, rear & side. Most likely there is at least 1 burnt out on the other side.

I am pretty sure there is a relay bad on my focus for my signals. the left turn signal flashes faster than the right. Which one do i change?


Howdy,
First look for a burned out bulb on the side that flashes faster. Look carefully. Go to the right side that flashes normal and see how many bulbs flash front side and rear. then turn to left side and look, you may find one bulb burned out.
Good Luck !!!!!!!!!!

Rear turn signal and hazard light don't flash (left side only)


The rear left turn signal bulb must be replaced immediatly before it melts the light socket, if it has'nt yet. Also please verify that the correct light bulb is being installed. because even though many bulbs look the same they are not identical. Installing the wrong bulb can be the begining of many, many problems in the particular circuit

I have exactly the same problem on the same molel car 2001 Accura 3.2CL , could this be a relay problem? The problem is, let me repeat, "Left turn signal flashes way too fast. front and rear, bulbs are are good and lighting so it is not a bulb. the right side is fine and the same bulbs are lighting on that side .....". (This is my question rather than an answer, I hope this will help to find a solution)
