Question about 1995 Ford Contour
The right rear brake/turn signal bulb burned out. When I replaced it acts as if the wiring had been reversed. Both bulb elements light when using the turn signal. When the driving lights are on they are continually lit indicating braking. The left side is working OK. It's not the bulb. Has anyone ever encountered something like this? We've never had any work done to the electrical system.
Hi go back to bulb and make sure the bulb you have fitted is for indicator? this has only one element and has only one centre contact for power also check the side pins on the body of bulb they should be opposite one another and on same level as you look on side however here in uk some of these bulbs are the same as above but for the locating pins as described above the pins are on same level but not opposite each other so if you try fitting should not be able to fit easily bayonet suggest you check the other side rear light bulbs one at atime to ensure correct type are what you have fitted stop and tail light bulbs have two elements one for brake and one for tail light these locating pins are oposite each other but not on same level offset to ensure the elements are on correct circuit when fitted hope you understand ?
