One of the front blinker bulbs is burnt out. Replace the bad bulb and the blink should function normaly. you have a front right turn signal bulb that is burned out. the resone it blinks fast is there is less load on the flasher .

Usually an airbag light blinks to signal a problem. The number of blinks tells the driver the code number, which informs the driver of the problem.

Check the back signal light. Usually if the front blinks fast the back is out or need to be replace. Vice versa

Your turn signal flasher needs to be replaced. Note: there is no such thing as "blinker fluid".

It means that a light bulb is out on the side where the light solid (not blinking) it could be in the front or rear of the vehicle.

Does the turn signal also blink? If so, you have two wires touching. What happens when you put the vehicle in reverse and the backup light is supposed to come on? If the turn signal lights up and the backup light doesn't, you have the bulbs in the wrong socket.

I really need to know how you read a 700... i have never heard of it and cannot find it. if your check engine light shines a long signal that represents a 10, if it is short blinks they represent 1. you take your long blinks and add your short blinks. example two long blinks and three shorts is a code 23.

to differentiate it from a brake light or running lights. Its the only one that BLINKS at a regular rate when looking at it from the back.

Replace bulb Check socket for power & ground Check socket for corrosion

means there is a bulb burnt out on left side. check side marker/blinkers

if you have a "chipped " key, the security system is not recognizing the signal. Have you tried a spare key.?

Usually when ones turn signal is blinking fast its telling you that a turn signal bulb (and in some cases a brake light bulb) is out. If it blinks fast when you turn on the the left signal the burnt out bulb is on that side of the vehicle (could be front or rear bulb so you'll have to check). And vice versa

Sounds like you simply have A burned out bulb, Turn the signal on and look at all the lights to see if any are burned out. Could be A marker light if its in the turn signal circuit.

User Avatar

Could be a bad bulb (dual filament) and they are touching each other sending signal through parking light circuit or a bad ground sending signal searching for ground to the path of least resistance

User Avatar

get it checked, because if the ligt blinks, something is wrong.

It is important to know why a Check engine light blinks. In many cars, when it blinks so many times, it is indicating a code, which is indicating the problem number for the specific car.

User Avatar

Yes, its a burned out bulb. The dash light will always work and in the case of erratic flashing that is just an indication that it is in fact the bulb that is burned out.

Firefly light is a mating signal. Only the males fly - the females are wingless and wait in the grass, answering with blinks of light of their own. They find each other this way in order to mate. ^^

There is a CEL, Check Engine Light, on the 1989 Thunderbird.

My light usually blinks when I start the car and then stops later on, I usually take it in when the light is solid. You should check your owner's manual if you are concerned.
