Question about 1999 Ford Taurus
Driver side turn signal blinks fast in front and doesn't blink at all in the back, replaced both back bulbs and still not working.
Turn signals have a relay (its a small switch that charges and discharges current) which controls your turn signals blinking speed and interval. This is most likely your problem. You should be able to get a new one at your local parts store. Follow these instructions, in this order, and let me know how it works.
Step 1:Turn on the hazard lights and walk around the Taurus checking that all four turn signal lights are working. If any of them are not working, replace the bulbs. A non-working bulb in any of the turn signals will often make the turn signals appear that a flasher is going bad.
Locate the fuse box and check the fuses for the turn signals. There may be more than one. Replace any fuses that are blown and then recheck the turn signals again. If they still aren't working properly, then move on to replace the flasher. Step 3: Look for a round, silver-colored object near the fuse box. Put your finger on the object and turn on the turn signal. You should be able to feel a mechanical clicking as the turn signal blinks. This is the flasher. Step 4: Pull the silver flasher out of the socket and replace it with the new one. Each of the flashers should have two pins sticking out of the bottom side. Start the Taurus and recheck the turn signals to ensure that they work. Joel

SOURCE: rear turn signals don't work
Hello There ,
I will Try my best to Walk you through this , Ok We Need to Know If ALL that's Not Working In the rear is Turn Signals? You need a Helper to look 1.First for Tail Lights 2. Next BRAKE Lights apply Brakes and have Helper see.
This Points to A BAD GROUND in A CAR This is Usually In the Trunk Fallow Wires FROM TAIL LIGHT Assembly and Look for Anything Out of Ordinary with Wires such as Corrosion Anywhere Clean and REPLACE Section of wire if Nessesary. On GM Vehicles there Is A GROUND WIRE SCREWED or BOLTED to Trunk FLOOR or SIDE RAILS We Must RULE OUT BAD GROUND. After this Comes the Parts CO$T.This May Very well Stop Here and FixYa. If Not we make sure FRONTS are Working. Bad Ground in the Trunk happens a lot Especialy When we Carry A Lot Of Things in the trunk. LOOK UNDER TRUNK LINER and BEHIND CARDBOARD SIDE Covers. Is there a Trailer Hitch & plug if so liminate the Trailer Plug Wires as the Problem. We would Rather WASTE a Little time At a Chance of SAVING MONEY Than WAIST MONEY Now AFTER a FULL Inspection. the Problem May be Found and Repaired at this Point, if so Good if Not Problem is Most Likley The Turn Signal Switch itself or Multifunction Switch

SOURCE: Turn signal blinks too fast
Try changing the flasher, it's in the fuse box, round in shape, and either blue or silver in color.The 4 way flasher is the same shape, to be sure you get the right one, put the left signal on and put your finger on it, if you feel it clicking, you have the right one.

If new bulbs don't work, it is probably the harness that holds the bulb. I had to replace both on my car after fighting with the problem for over a year and not knowing.
