I have a 2007 Focus SE sedan. About a month ago my rear right turn signal quit working. I was a slacker and didn't fix it right away. Today my left one went out. I bought replacement bulbs 3157 and replaced them but they're still not working. The front signals are fine. Any suggestions on what could be wrong?

The sockets can get hot and the metal contacts then warp further apart to not contact the bulb. Take like any sharp object and go in and pry the metal bulb contacts in socket closer together to guarantee they contact the bulb wires. After that it will be a wiring issue.

Afew questions as it is a bit vague in the description of the issue.

1: Do the rear lights turn on at all (ie is it just not signaling?)
2: Have you checked the fuses?


I am just asking as you said the turn signal doesn't work, but made no mention of if the light itself is completely dead.
