On four or five separate occasions over the past year the left turn signal and brake light has stopped working on BOTH of my 2010 and 2012 Escapes. However in the past it will then begin randomly working again a few days later. The bulb is not burned out, and it always occurs on the left side, so far never on the right. It happened again a month ago on the 2012, but so far it hasn't begun working again, so I need to figure out what the root problem is.
Any ideas what the cause may be? Perhaps a relay??
