Tailights

Front headlight blinks super fast on left and back doesn't work at all right works normally the problem isn't the relay because both of my relays have the same problem

Idk why that would happen all of sudden and changes in speed with the switch of relays :/ I'm baffled it stopped doing it when I turned the steering wheel a certain way while driving

If I'm not mistaken the multifunction switch is located under the steering column

Multifunction switch = wiper/turn signal knob/switch. They cause funky electrical issues when they start to fail. I just replaced one in my explorer. Takes all of 5 minutes to do. If all your bulbs are good and you dont see any obvious wiring issues, it might be worth picking one up cheap at a salvage yard and trying that.

Sounds good I may try that because I just put in new sequential tails with new wiring harnesses recently and the lights are def. working and the wiring by the relay seems intact so it must be the switch

It adds at least 10hp

It lower the resistance in your wires so it flows smoother

Check your wiring first, use a multimeter amd test the leads.

Then check prices at rockauto.com.

Local autopart stores will have em from between 50-75 bucks usually. Dont buy the bwd garbage or any of the cheapy store brand ones, always spend the few extra bucks and get oem replacements even more so when dealing with electronics.

Something you send your girlfriend in the parts store for. If she can not take a joke do not tell her.
