Question about Ford Escort

2 Answers

I have a 2000 Ford Escort. My left turn signal inside is blinking real fast. Outside it isn't working. Also, the brake light and Haz.Flasher isn't working on the outside either on the left side. Running lights are fine. Pulled both bulbs and they look good. Also looked at all the Fuses inside the car and none are burned out. Not sure what the common problem could be.

    there is a short, usually happens at one of the sockets. Probably the left rear. Remove the bulb and inspect the socket for damage. If the socket looks good, trace the wire as far as you can to check for a short to the chassis/frame.

In the fuse panel with the fuses inside the car there are two big round units plugged into the fuse panel, one is your turn signal flasher one is your hazard flasher. I would start with those and move to other things if that doesn't fix it. Hope this Helps.

Brake light trouble right side brake light will not come on but both flashers work also turn signals work older ford truck what could the problem


I have to think the problem is inside the turn signal switch, a poor internal connection. You know the brake signal first goes through the turn switch before it goes to the bulbs. That is why the brake lights and rear turn signal lights share the same filament in the bulb, and the same wire going to those lights. The only difference is the turning side light is affected by the turn signal flasher, causing blinking, while the other side- the non turning side-does not go through the flasher relay, but straight to the bulb from the turn signal switch. Change your turn signal switch and I believe you will solve the problem. Let me know, okay?

dont break the brakes..... TURNS & HAZ
many blinker, modules , internally flash with any load.
1: check all fuses first... (SOP)
2: then remove the blinker loads from the timer.

see it here
http://www.jeep4x4center.com/knowledge-base/index.htm?utm_source=cj#service

see WIRING, (end)
8w-51/52
chapter 8w, page 51-4 shows the switch. (complex it is)
note how brake and turns are shared, resources. (blub elements)
now 8w-52-6
see the flasher module.
see C305 pin 2, any load on that pin will cause it to flash.(inside)
that would be any switch in the combo switch stuck on.

Turn signals went out


replace the fuses first. for turn/hazards.
the HAZ fuse 10 amps ., do hazards fail?????????


old car, very old. 1980 corolla.
first off, the lamps are brass based lamps. 115x lamps
they can short so replace them all or remove all of them
and put only 1 new lamp in (of the 4) if this works, good.
if not use a voltmeter to find the cause.
12v during a flash is good, 0v dead, 6v is shorted wires.
this is easy, dont panic, get the schematic for the car is best way.
The FSM has this but are rare for such and old car.

i looked online , alldata.com
and the schematic is there.
the path is from battery to ground as follows
10a haz fuse and 5am turn fuse. (2 fuse!)
the fuses drives the HAZ module
the HAZ module drives the lamps directly in HAZ mode
in blink mode the HAZ module drives the combo turn switch.
a bad flasher module KILL BOTH, (did it?)
the comb drives left or right side and the lamps are all grounded
completing the path of electrics, and the lamps glow.
current flows, and the lamps glow.

lamps
green-black is left
green-yell is left side.

the best test for this car, is to cycle the HAZ button over and over
until they work, most switches this old. 33 years are dirty and fail.
so cycle it. 10 times, if the HAZ fails.
it must work on HAZ or its all a wasted effort.
because the HAZ module feeds the binkers...

1994 Chevy C1500 truck. No rear brake lights


Most likely this is a brake light switch issue. Replace switch.

If your emergency flashers don't work, all flasher bulbs are fine, but flashing too fast, then check and replace Hazard light switch.

Need to replace left turn signal flasher


This is weird! It seems to me that the left turn signal is getting 12v from somewhere at all times.I don't think the flasher is the problem(most GM systems use a single flasher for left and right)You probably have a crossed wire somewhere(or an add on accessory was connected to the left signal wire,allowing 12 volts to bleed through to the circuit)

2007 cadillac dts passenger side rear brake light is not working


If the turn signal is blinking fast on the dash then this means that the bulb is blowned outside of the vehicle. Check to see that all of your exterior turn signals are lighting up and if not then it's time to replace the bulb(s). Hope this was helpful to you
