Question about 1993 Mercury Villager

1 Answer

When I turn on my right blinker, the side

When I turn on my right blinker (in 1993 Mercury Villager), the side headlight comes on steady. Also, the right brake light works fine except when the headlights are on. The tail light works (this is only the right side) and the brake light works. But when the headlights are on (therefor the tail light) the bulb goes completely black when brake is engaged instead of the brighter brake filament lighting up.

This is an older vehicle and I've heard of the EXACT problem of the side light coming on with the blinker. I know electrical problems occur in old vehicles, but since I'd heard of the side light/blinker issue I thought I'd throw it out there to see if anyone had run into the same thing.

I looked in the fuse box but since the lights work and this is only an issue on one side I thought it might be a connection or corrosion issue rather than fuse. Looks like fused relays mostly in this one.

Hope to get some sort of insight before I start ripping out panels and wiring harnesses.....

I have a 94 mercury villager. My back yellow blinker lights come on whenever I turn on my headlights. They just stay on like running lights. I've had cops stop me thinking I had my emergency lights o

Hi Wendilynn
This will depend on what country you are from and where the car is from also as in the USA the blinker lights are running lights that stay on i do not think you can get red covers for them as then you will have red blinkers and they should be orange, the only way i can think of a work around is, disconnect the wires for the blinkers ( do not know if yours are red or not you did not say ) and swap the wires with the proper blinkers, if however the orange blinker lights that are staying on are your proper blinkers then you should have a permanent live wire going to them, you will have to remove this permanent live wire from them and if they do not have a live feed have an auto electrician fit some wires from the flasher unit to them and that should solve the problem hope you understand what i mean
