Default Loudest signal light ever!

Hi I have such a dumb question because of such a dumb problem. My signal lights on my 2007 Ford Escape are so loud that they drive me insane. Im not deaf and Im not 75 years old so I dont need them that loud to know they are on. Anyone have any gadgets or information on how I can shut these things up?? Thanks.

Hi

I don't know where the flasher relay is located but I'm sure you won't have trouble finding it, just let it tick away while you hunt.

You could replace it if it's a simple 2 or 3 prong relay. Or you could wrap it in foam & duct tape.

But seriously, like he said, you could replace the relay, or possibly wrap it in sound-insulating material (like you use in a trunk if installing a sub).
