Question about 2004 Ford Thunderbird
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.

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.

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

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.

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
