I noticed something strange on my 2002 Ford Tarus SEL. Everytime I get
in my car and start the car, the directional lights would come on and stay
on. If I turn the headlights on, the headlights and taillights would come
on. The panel light which allows you to see the speedometer in the dark
wouldn't come on. I drive the car to and from work everyday and in about
10 - 20 minutes on the road, the panel light would finally come on and the
directional lights would come off and stay off.
I've been having that problem for about a month and couldn't find where
the problem is coming from. I took the car to the dealer and had them look
at it. They couldn't find anything either. I must have ran over something on
the road in the dark at night without seeing it. That might have cause the
problem. Any ideas what the problem is? Any help or troubleshooting tips
would be greatly appreciated.
