problem #2

Oct 052005

Ranger 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 41,250 miles
Turn signals began to fail to flash on occasion. A loud buzzing sound seemed to come from the flasher. A slight pulling back on the indicator stalk will sometimes cause the signals to work. This, however also causes the headlights to flash (flash to pass). The windshield wipers also come on occasionally when the turn signal is activated. Happens with both right and left turn signal. I am awaiting appointment to have repaired.

2002 Ford Ranger, turn signal lever does not engage when turning left (blinker malfunction). The consumer stated the right turn signal did not engage at times, but was less frequent than the left. The dealer failed several attempts to fix the blinker problem before finally giving up.
