Electrical problem?

Asked by Jul 08, 2015 at 07:43 AM about the 2012 Ford Mustang V6 Convertible

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hey guys I'm having some issues with
power to the rear end of the car.

First symptom was the back up lights no
longer work. Second is my brake lights
pulsate instead of remainimg steady when
the brake is being pushed. Third, and most
wierd. The turn signals flicker and dont
work for a minute after starting the car but
begin working fine shortly after. Also during
this period I wasn't able to open the trunk.

This is on a 2012 mustang convertible that I
bought used a few months ago. I believe the
trunk is leaky so could it be a short causing
this? Thanks

Check wiring in the trunk and pay close attention to loose or corroded connections including the grounds.
