There are many on here that feel 3 is not enough. You want to let others know you are going to pass so you have to initiate the blinker BEFORE you start to move over and that usually takes at least 2 - 3 blinks. I would agree 3 is likely enough for pulling back into the right lane but not so for the initial pass. On the other hand, 3 is 3 more than many drivers give.5 is too many, 3 is plenty in a lane change scenario. The Germans give you 3....
Welcome to the Forum Evanskp.:wavey:Has anyone found an aftermarket multi function switch replacement that has a more user friendly turn signal functionality? The way Ford designed this does result in many accidental high beam flashing. Its frustrating how hard you have to press to activate the turn signal.
Hi machine4321,Mine is also very stiff. The '11 i had as a rental was butter smooth. Turning right doesnt take as much force as turnin left. 5 times out of 10 i dont get it far enough to hit the 2nd detent. It is pretty annoying.
No issue with the flashing high beams though.
Hi maliboo74,I would like to see something done about this. I have not yet gone to the dealer, but I received a recall so I will talk to them when I schedule service for recall # 13S04...
Some where in this I read that it blinks 5 times in tow not 3 Do you have to have trailer hooked up as I tried my tow not hooked up and only got 3They came through. The new directional switch feels must smoother and engages much easier. It's going to take some getting used to!
For anyone else who is going to report this to the dealer this is what was described on my invoice:
"DIRECTIONAL LEVEL SEEMS VERY STIFF"
CAUSE: 13300D .50
13300D STEERING COLUMN SWITCH ASSEMBLIES
DIAGNOSIS - L
1 DB5Z*13341*BA SWITCH ASY
I don't know what it means, but hopefully your dealer will.
Thank you to Crystal at Ford Customer Service for contacting the dealer about this on my behalf and to bluex232 for starting this topic!
It is mentioned in post #57. If that is indeed how it works in 'Tow' mode perhaps it requires the connector plugs/wire to be active in order to signal to the computer that 5 'blinks' are now required. Or perhaps it senses the extra electrical load.Some where in this I read that it blinks 5 times in tow not 3 Do you have to have trailer hooked up as I tried my tow not hooked up and only got 3
