Question about 1996 Ford Contour
I'm on my third combo(turn signal) switch @$90.00 a pop. This problem started after a brake-in through the right front passenger window and now that power door lock operates much slower than the other three. I'ts too my knowledge that the power source for the door locks also power the brake lights. I have already had the Contour in to a reputable auto electric shop and they diagnosed ''no power coming through the combo switch from the brake light switch on the pedal''. I told them the story of the brake-in, but they could not find anything else wrong and suggested a new switch. I bought one from Ford,,Installed it,,,but it only lasted about a couple of weeks. Who knows when it stopped working???only until I noticed no brake lights in reflection on the ground behind the car in my rear view mirror. The bulbs are good, it's not blowing any fuses or links,,,just the combo switch is being taken out!
Please explain if this switch is the type that knocks out the brake light for the indicator ?? american style as i am a bit confused here as this system is illegal here ,if your having all this problem then rewire it and fit two auxilery lights for the indicators ,or new rear lights with seperate indicators in them
