The tick tick tick when my turn signal is on is very soft and inaudible at highway speeds. Does everyone else's act the same way?

Yes it is quiet. I'm on vacation now and have a rental Ford Escort. If I feel drousy.....all I have to do is turn on a turn signal. That will wake the dead

hahah is that how loud it is in the Escort? If it is thats loud enough that i'd consider it annoying.

too bad there's nothing that can be done about how quiet the PF's turn signal is but it's also a good thing, helps for a quieter ride.

The ticking sound is a thing of the past, why would you want it to be louder anyways. It used to actually bother me cause it was so loud. But i guess to some people they want to know that they have the signal on cause depending on your turning radius it wont switch off the indicator and its too soft to hear.

yes, it is quiet. i do like the "bump" position where if you hit the arm halfway, it only click 3 times. good for a last minute lane change that probably wouldn't trigger it to turn off anyway.

Two thumbs up for that.

Personally, haven't noticed the turn signals were any quieter than my last vehicle. In fact, I haven't noticed the noise at all (or missed it).

Quieter is better - I had my wife test-drive a Ford Explorer Sport (kinda liked the twin-turbo V-6, 365 HP). Her biggest dislike, enough reason to NOT buy one? The loud turn-signal!

I'm willing to bet the Explorer shares the turn signals with the Escort. Is anyone here old enough to remember when, on certain brands, leaving the turn signal on too long, would trigger an annoying buzzer, bell or other loud alert to cancel?

I have the same complaint about the turn signals being too quiet. On a lane change, if they don't cancel, you can't tell unless you're staring at the instrument cluster. I remember when you could get flasher modules, the bi-metal clicker type. They were great for loud cars. I'm guessing the PF's light timing is all electronic.

I think the dab-the-lever method for lane changes is way too short at 3 flashes. I think that the signal is to warn to others of an impending change. About the time others are warned with three flashes, the light goes off, and they probably think you changed your mind. This isn't a problem for my wife, though, who sweeps the lever a the same time she's turning the wheel, essentially confirming that she made a lane change with a signal.

This seems to be a common annoyance - there is nothing you can do about it.

Definitely it's not loud enough. The sound we ear is from a tiny speaker hidden in the fuse box. They should add a volume option in the instrument cluster computer.
