      Hey guys,

      I have an 05 Mountaineer that just this morning started having an issue. Whenever I turn on the right-hand turn signal, it flashes really fast. The left-hand signal works fine. The first thing I checked were the light bulbs, and everything seems to be on. The front-right bulb flashes, but the rear-right does not, although the bulb is on.

      I can hear the flasher relay or whatever clicking under the dash, and it clicks really fast, at the same speed as the signal indicator and front-right signal. Are there any bulbs that I could have missed that would cause this, or could a bulb be working but somehow faulty, or would it more likely be that the flasher relay is going out?

      Thanks!

      Not sure on the 3rd gen. but on the 2nd it would be the multifunction switch assembly on the steering column. This is a common problem on the 2nd gen.

      Ok.. I just had someone watch the lights while I tried the ones I couldn't see myself (brakes & reverse), and the right-brake bulb doesn't brighten. The bulb is lit when the driving lights are on, but it doesn't brighten up when you press the brakes. Could this still be a bulb problem, or would it be something else? I didn't know since it still lights up, just doesn't get brighter.

      Thanks.
