Pull the light back out, turn the turn signal on, take a test light, ground it. stick down into the connector. A lot of times, the little metal tabs on the bottom don't make contact and it will cause this problem. Somtimes, you have to replace the connector. Also, if the front light blinks fast, check the bulb in that one - it could be shorted. Hope this helps. Phil

I got a 2002 ford taurus and when i go to turn my headlights on the interior light dont work and the blinkers light up but they do blink when im turning, i was what it could be thats causing that thank...

Many turn signal lamps will have multiple bulbs in them. If "one" of the bulbs is faulty, the interior lamp or lamps will come on, indicating a bad bulb. You will need to turn on your left blinker and view the bulb and make sure all bulbs appear to be blinking on front and rear of the car, then repeat with the right blinker. If you find one that doesn't appear to look right or blinks faster slower or dimmer, then replace the bulbs in that turn signal. The interior light may begin working properly when you replace the "shorted" bulb for the turn signals. If it does not, check the fuses to make sure the "shorted" bulb didn't damage your fuse for the interior lights.

Signal lights dont work when breaking

No,this is not normal,this normal when the emergency flashers are on,but not the turn signals.Check the bulbs(all of them)in the rear tail light assembleys.If you can not tell which bulbs are bad,replace them all.Does this vehicle have a trailer light plug?If it does,it could be in it.After the bulb replacement(look at bulbs in your hand to see if filiments are burned)replace the turn signal flasher.To find it turn key on,and left or right turn signal on,and listen,and feel for it under dash around the steering column.

Right read blinker/break light dont work, turn signal blinks rapidly

It's the bulb. There are two filliments in the bulb. One is for when you turn your lights on and the other is for breaking and blinker flashing. When the break filliment goes bad it causes the blinker to flash very rapidly. 100% the bulb. Change it and all will be good again. P.S. if it were a fuse none of the break lights or blinkers would work.

Left rear turn signal is not working

The tail light assembly might have to be removed to gain easier access to the bulb. The socket to the bulb is mounted to the assembly. The socket usually takes a 1/4 turn to line up the guide pins on the socket for the assembly. The the bulb inside the socket either pulls right out or push down and turn a little to the left. When you purchase a new bulb, then you can tell what type is in it.

2002 ford taurus right signal and brake light does not work

If the bulb taken out had a plastic base on it, it might have melted a little in the socket. Take the new bulb out look in the socket if there is black on the contacts then just clean them off with a small knife.

Change rear signal bulb on 2002 ford focus wagon

Open the rear tailgate There are 2 screws that hold light housing in place.. Remove the screws then pull the housing outwards till the clip behind it springs. You then need to knock the housing sideways (outwards) to free the 2 prongs that attach housing to the car body.
Unclip the rear housing from the back of the light unit & change the bulb.
