Question about 1999 Ford Escort

1 Answer

Left blinker is NOT working correctly

So stumped on my silly car. Left blinker is having a problem. When it is turned on, ALL the rear lights flash fast. Changed bulb, checked fuses and relays. Do not believe it is the turn signal switch. One of the two left blinkers work. Can not see where a short might be. Any suggestions?

Sounds like you have a ground issue.

With the left blinker on check for power on the black wire. If there is power than the ground is bad on that wire. You will need to trace it to its grounding point making sure there is no corrosion in the wire, the wire is not broken, and the ground is clean.

If that checks out you may have a bad socket. I think the sockets on these plug into the harness. You can try swapping the socket to the other side and see if the problem follows.

Left turn signal is not flashing on my 95" pontiac grand am


If both the front and rear bulbs are lighting up but not flashing, try replacing the flasher unit first, and if that doesn't do it, insure both bulbs are the correct ones and have clean sockets and good grounds.

Left blinker flashes fast and when i turn on the headlights front blinker doesn't work at all and rear is still flashes fast? thanks


Generally, when you have a signal light that blinks fast it is an indication that one of the other signal lights are out. Check all of your bulbs and make sure they are the correct ones.

Blinkers don't work: When I use my blinkers to


The right blinker issue sounds like you have one bulb out either front or rear check them both. The left blinker issue sounds like either bulbs(both out) or fuse, or worst case blinker switch has gone bad on left turn only so not picking up the signal.

You need to check your left side turn/park lamp bulbs for correct part # & installation.If that checks out you deffinetely have a ground problem.When you have other lights blinking with you turn signals you have either a bulb incorrect or a bad/poor ground.If bulbs check out check your forward lamp harness ground.Hope this helps
