Any thoughts on this would be appreciated. I've been having an intermittent problem with the rear driver's side blinker on my 2003 SVT. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. Believe it or not I think it's temperature related. Everything works fine when the temps are 40F and above, but in the morning or evening when the temperature dips I get a rapid blink in the dash and the rear bulb doesn't flash. Left brake light doesn't work either. Started 4 days ago.
I ran out and bought a bulb, but I haven't replaced it because it started working again. Any ideas??

its the bulb for sure, it started to work again because the fillment in the bulb hasnt fully burned away, its blinking extra fast, because the other working bulbs are doing the work of the one that blown, so replace the bulb and you should be good to go! [thumb]

Actually focusman the rapid blink was designed that way each blinker relay is set for a number of lights, lose one or add to many it will rapid blink as a warning somethings wrong/or bulbs out

I'll replace the bulb and see what happens. Usually when bulb blows, that's it, it's done. Never had one come back from the dead before. The filiment looks like it's still intact, but I'll replace it anyway.
Thanks,
WES
