When the turn signal is engaged the sound is normal, however, only on a right turn (currently), when the turn signal is engaged and the brake pedal is applied, the interval between the "click" increased interval duration. In other words it gets faster. When the brake is released, it returns to normal. Has anyone else experienced this? I am leaning towards the technology indicating the bulb is needing replaced.

Thanks

Usually, this is some sort of wiring short.

I've seen it when there's a fault in trailer wiring. Do you have a hitch and trailer wiring? I think most of them were pre-wired; perhaps the connection got moisture in it.
Thanks - All fixed now! Turned out to be the brake light causing the issue. Changed the bulb first (to double check) and this seemed to sort the issue.

Excellent!! Perhaps there is a redundancy built into the turn signal so that it let's you know the brake light bulb on that side is burned out...I'll check it out today and see if that's the case.

Exactly what I’ve been trying to find out. If that’s the case then Bravo Ford.

On a different note - does anybody know of any issues with the clutch when reversing up an incline?

It is 100% a redundancy within the brake light circuit, which is awesome. I just pulled the brake lamp assembly, pulled the brake light bulb, and checked...which, by the way, is really overengineered. Two screws on the outside, a wingnut INSIDE behind the trim, a terminal that is really difficult to get loose, then four tiny screws on the back of the housing to get at the bulbs. I mean, I guess I'd rather it be over-engineered than under-engineered.

As for the clutch question, I don't know. We only got the automatic gearbox here in the US. What is the issue you're having?
