We have a 2001 V4 Ford Escape, and while driveing today the seatbelt light began to rapidly flash. The owners manual does not have any indication as to what this means, and the seatbelt for the driver was done up at the time. Is there someplace I can find out what this is indicateing?

There is a TSB to replace chafed wires on the seat belt pretensioners. Most common cause.
Both front seats have to be removed to perform the TSB. It involves replacing the male and female connector to the seat belt buckle pretensioner. In an accident, it fires and temporarily tightens the seat belt to take up slack. I think TSB 05-17-5.

I HAVE FORD ESCAPE NO MANUAL WANT TO KNOW MEANING OF DASH BOARD LIGHTS


I think what you are seeing is an airbag readiness light. Here is what the owners manual says about it:


Air bag readiness
Momentarily illuminates when the
ignition is turned to the RUN
position. If the light fails to
illuminate, continues to flash or
remains on, have the system
serviced immediately
Here is the link to download the owners manual for your car.

Right read blinker/break light dont work, turn signal blinks rapidly


It's the bulb. There are two filliments in the bulb. One is for when you turn your lights on and the other is for breaking and blinker flashing. When the break filliment goes bad it causes the blinker to flash very rapidly. 100% the bulb. Change it and all will be good again. P.S. if it were a fuse none of the break lights or blinkers would work.
