Could possibly be tied in with the ecm or it may just be a bad relay. If I were you I would call your local ford dealer service dept. and ask to speak with the service manager most of them will share their knowledge free of charge to give you an idea of what it maybe.

Side lights at back dill just ever so slightly when the indicator is on


could be a short in circuit somewhere because Daytime running lights don't have to be separate lights - some car manufacturers combine them with the front position lamps (side lights) in which case the daytime running lights will dim when the headlights are turned on.
If daytime running lights are located very close to indicator lights then the DRL on the appropriate side of the vehicle must turn off while the indicator is operating to avoid masking its signal.

Turnsignals normal with headlights off.But , blink real fast when headlights on


Check you running light bulb.. some of those have two elements in them and one side could be blow inside the single bulb. The blinking is how the car tells you that you have a bad bulb, or maybe a short. Mostly likely it just a bulb.

They are supposed to stay on. Why would they blink? Are you referring to the turn signals? They're the only ones that should blink.

Check for head light (daytime)relay to be bad,this might have to do with the turn signals also,if the turn signals on this car,also have running lights in them,If this relay is not bad,replace the body control module.

This is normal operation. The DTRL's turn off so on coming traffic can see your directional lights blinking. Your daytime running lights are so bright it is hard to see your turn signals during the day.

Also did you know that if you press in/out your dome override switch 3 times you can turn off your daytime running lights. After you hear a "ding" your lights should be off. Do the same to turn them back on.

At night your DTRL's are your highbeams.
