ok and im sorry but that blinker fluid thing is a joke right? lol
My original was black, the replacement I got was blue too. Just a colour change for the relay cover. Guess newer rangers have the blue ones.

BTW, make a signature (year, model, engine size, etc...) Just makes it easier to help.

Make sure you get the RBF600, the RBF500 doesnt brighten the lights up as much as the RBF600. I heard that the RBF600 is a synthetic blend and thats why the lights are a little brighter.

And like I mentioned before, there is the teflon stuff, RBF500T and RBF600T, which retails for a few extra bucks, and helps resist corrosion and debris in the sockets and wiring harness.

get your blinker fluid here..

http://kalecoauto.com/index.php?main...&products_id=6

i've always used kalecoauto for my problems.. sometimes you have to call can see if they have the fluid on hand, as their website isn't updated too well. but the kind on their site is synthetic and works great for me!

Sorry for reviving a dead thread.

Anyways, I had this problem too. My left turn signal wouldn't work half the time for the past week. By luck of good timing, my new tail lights came in today and in turn it pointed out the problem. I installed them and as I was checking to make sure everything worked it began the quick turn signal blinking. I pulled the left taillight out and the blinker bulb was dead. Replaced the bulb and problem solved.

His bulb did something weird that caused this. One of the filaments detached from it's post and re-attached itself to the other post. The bulb ' worked ' so he didn't replace it. Finally he looked closer and replaced the bulb. Problem solved.
