vehicle sold and factory equipped with trailering package which includes factory trailer wiring. turn signals & hazard flashers do not flash in accordance w/ 49cfr, 571.108 when trailer attached to factory wiring. dealer has found electronic flasher from ford is not sufficient to operate with trailer. flasher is rated as "2/4 flasher" (2 turn/4 hazard lamps). ford does not offer heavy duty flasher sufficient to operate vehicle & trailer turn / flasher lamps. no aftermarket manufacturer has been found that makes a flasher unit that will operate in this vehicle. standard "heavy duty" flashers blow all turn / flasher / brake light fuses. creates extreme danger as turn signals and hazard flashers fail or are insufficient to operate in traffic with trailer attached. only remedy is to convert trailer lamps to led lamps. cost $150.00 - $250.00 per trailer.

Littleton, CO

the turn signal does not stay engaged (click into the on position) when the steering wheel is turned slightly in either direction.. the problem may seem minor, but i cannot let others know my intention to turn into a driveway or street when the steering wheel is turned slightly (as is the case when rounding a bend). this has been reported to ford's service department and they state that "operation of signals is normal" on a repair order dated 02/24/2000. they also told me that this happens on the ford ranger too. my concern should be investigated because i have had to either take one hand off the steering wheel to "hold down" the turn signal lever, or not signal to other drivers. with the popularity of ford suv's , the number of potentially dangerous incidents is very high. a massive recall might be in order to allow drivers to operate their vehicles more safely. *ak
