One of the lights one side the Ford Escape tail light assembly don't work, while the same light on the other side does. How can this problem be solved?
Answer: Everything electrical that should point to the Ford Escape tail light assembly should be found passing via the "Smart Junction Box" or "Battery Junction Box". Both pertain to the same thing. There are a couple of fuses there that should be removed. If new fuses don't do the trick, it may be necessary to replace the whole junction box.
What are some of the options for Ford Escape Tail Light assemblies for a customized rear look?
Answer: One of the popular modifications for Ford Escape tail lights is installing an LED assembly. The housing can also be changed to a Euro/Altezza style lights. Not only do these look cooler on the car, but these upgrades also give a brighter light compared to the stock ones. This will really be helpful for other drivers to get a better sight of the Escape. Some Ford Escapes that are used on trails and treks have tail light covers that serve as protection against any debris that may damage the lenses.
Why do the turning lights flash at a fast rate after I modify the Ford Escape tail light bulbs to LEDs?
Answer: LED bulbs use less energy compared to the original ones on the Ford Escape tail light assembly. When these are installed on an Escape, the extra energy that used to go to the stock lights now go to the turning lights. These lights become too excited and in turn flash too quickly. To solve this, extra resistors or new special turning light bulbs are necessary to be able to handle this extra energy. Doing these adjustments should return the turning lights back to its normal rate.
