Hey everyone I am new here and looking for a little help. Recently purchased a 2003 mustang gt that is a slight project car. It is also my daily driver for now to. Any how upon checking all the lights noticed my turn signal was blinking fast when I turned it on to go left. Found out the driver front wasn't working so I bought a new bulb and tried that first didn't do any thing tried another new bulb just to be safe with the same results. Does any one have any suggestions of where to start looking??

Thanks

Could be the socket isn't making good contact with the bulb. Do you have a multimeter?

Just wanted to say thanks for all the help. Today I borrowed my dads multi meter. I first ruled out bad bulb and bulb housing because it worked if I switched it to the other side. Then I tested the wires which was getting power I found out that the wires just had been not pushed in enough in the harnes that plus into the bulb housing. So I just pushed the wires in deeper and it works cheap fix.

good job. Working as a tech I was often amazed how easy a lot of fixes are often just a good look can tell you alot. I had a room mate that kept complaining that his car had a rattle at 3400 rpms or something strange. "Not 35, not 33, but 3400.", He told me about it for months until finally one day we were both outside and I told him to pop the hood and lets take a look. He popped the hood and held it up still telling me about how its been driving him nuts and as I went to grab the prop rod I found the problem, the prop rod was not latched down under the clip. Took 3 secs and even if he didn't realize that was it if he would have taken a look he probably could have fixed it.
