'6 Escape Right Blinker Not Working After Towing
I have an '06 Escape AWD with a self installed tow package. The wiring kit is the $45 from etrailer.com. Shortly after installation, my right blinker was working intermittently. ie It would blink fast on the dash panel, but the actually blinker light itself was not blinking. I reconnected/tightened the connections and it was working fine for a few weeks.
Yesterday I was towing a trailer and the blinker worked fine on the way down, but on the way back, the dash light and the blinker lights were not working. I tried disconnecting the trailer wires and the wiring module but it did not help. After much googling I found an old forum post which someone had the same problem, unplugged their battery for 10 mins and it was fixed. I am going to try that, but if it doesn't work is there a flasher module located somewhere that can be replaced? The owner's manual wasn't very helpful. Thanks.
