Brake light and turn signal
When I first start driving car left turn signal and brake light don't work. If I drive about 2 miles they start working. Is bulb starting to go out?
The 2008-2012 Ford Escape features a revised front and rear fascia and restyled LED tail lamps.
Check the socket for corrosion. Also check the wires as far back as you can making sure that the insulation has not worn through and started shorting to the car. If the insulation looks deformed and brown (melted and burnt) by the socket then replace the socket. Start with the previous answer though.
