Question about 2004 Ford Thunderbird

1 Answer

What would cause 2004 thunderbird left rear turn signal to not work and bulb is o.k.

When I turn on the turn signal the 'clicker' noise goes fast as it does when a bulb is out. I bought a 2-pack of bulbs. I replaced the bulb with new one. I still didn't work. I replaced the new one with the other new one...still didn't work. The front one works fine and flashes at the normal speed even though the 'clicker' is going faster (bulb warning)

You need to check for power to rear light if none start to check wiring in reverse. Usually at turn signal switch or under drivers side carpet.

SOURCE: drivers side rear turn signal and brake light not working

I've noticed the same problem with my 2001 Ford Exployer Sport Trac. When my girlfriend drives my truck she raises the steering column, and when I'm driving, I lower the column. I noticed when I was driving recently the left front turn signal kept flashing quickly, thought it was the bulb, but changed and still happening. Today I took apart the steering column cover and noticed the wiring for the turn signals and hazards were loose. To fix this problem I pulled the wires out of column more as to not stress the connection. So far this has fixed the problem.

SOURCE: need to replace rear turn signal bulb 2002 thunderbird

I just did it last week. You have to remove the 2 nuts( in the trunk) that hold the tail light assembly to the car . One bolt is long and is against the inside fender, the other is easier to get at. Once the nuts are removed yank at the tail light ***'y from the out side and pull it loose( it may stick a little because of the rubber seal. . The light bulb then is removed from the ***'y by twisting, a locking bulb holder. You can get the bulbs at Wal-mart. They are sold in 2 packs. Len Florida

SOURCE: Right turn signal not working. Blinks very fast.

the fast blink means your bulb is burnt out back there.

You may have some wiring 'grounding' problems in the areas of concern. Remove each connection, and clean any rust. Place a light film of grease and a fresh star washer next to ground point, then the wire connector and other washers. Tighten firmly. Check the lamp sockets for any corrosion and replace same if found. The front lamp flashes rapidly because the rear light not working causes the flasher unit to switch faster.

SOURCE: 2003 Ford Explorer Sport rear turn signal acting up

if it's only the rear turn signal that does this, check the plug where the bulb snaps in. if loose or bad connection to bulb, it will sometimes work and sometimes not. if its both the front and rear turn signal bulbs, could be the combination switch. these were common failures on fords

2004 buick lasabre, right side turn signal blinking fast.


Check the front turn signal bulbs. This will affect the resistance in the circuit and cause the working light to flash at a much faster rate.

Turn single goes really fast on left side only


Soounds like you have a turn signal bulb out on the left side of your vehicle, most trun signals will flash rapidly if one bulb goes out, check your turn signals on the left side and make sure all the bulbs are working, front and rear..

Hope this helps...

Left turn signal blinking fast in front of vehicle, but not blinking in rear of vehicle 2004


That is an indicator that the bulb in the rear is burned out. Most vehicles built since 1995 use this method to tell owners that a blinker is out at a location on that side of the vehicle. Replace the bulb in the rear and it should work fine.

My left turn signals don't work.you can hear the clicker working normal and the courning lite come on. If you leave the signal switch on the turn lite will flash once in a while and also the lite on...


You most likely have a bad bulb, if the front bulb goes the rear wont work and vise versa both bulbs must be good to complete the cirrcut. Even though you have no lights you should still hear the flasher relay. Bulbs are cheap just replace both and you'll be good to go. Good luck

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.

2004 Dodge Durango: Left turn signal blinks fast


Check the bulb socket for a burnt or a shorted condition. Remove bulb and try another bulb, if it does it again then you have a short in the socket or wiring to bulb. Turn on the 4 way flashers and see what it will do. If it continues then look for any burnt wire connector or wireing to bulb. Check the wiring behind the light for any metal that has cut into the wiring insulation. Hope this will help you.

Left turn signal flashing fast, bulbs are OK, can't find the flasher unit


you said lights are working fine on rear but generally when they flash fast there is a turn signal light out on the side they flash on. Did you look at the turn signal light on the front of the vehicle?
