I just started having an issue with the tail lights on my 2006 F-250 today. The turn signals began flashing fast so I assumed that I have a bad bulb, but then sometimes they would flash at the normal speed. When I got home I investigated and found these symptoms:
Brake lights would start out working, but would go very dim shortly after the pedal is pressed.
When I use the turn signal both tail lights will flash (although they are also somewhat dim).
The tail lights do not work at all when the headlights are turned on.
I've read quite a few posts and found that many people have had problems with the flasher or the multifunction switch (or both), but none with my specific symptoms.
I've also found the recall #11c18, but my VIN does not qualify.
There is also this guy who seems to have the same issue, but no replies.
F 450 TAIL AND BRAKE LIGHTS NOT WORKING
Anyone experience this?
Don't know if it's relevant, but it's been cold (0-20 everyday) and icy here the past week or so.
Thanks for any help.
