OK, love the car.

But can't figure out why Ford put a loud, clunking turn signal on the car.

Even my wife and kids have commented about the "thunking"

Any way to disable this? Just the reminder in the car, not the actual signal itself...

Clip-Clop as the pony's hooves go. Everyone that gets in mine reminds them of the old stangs.

junior's right on the money. It's a retro thing, sounds like the 1960's Mustangs.

You might possibly be able to find an aftermarket TS relay that is quieter, but I don't know for sure.

I believe that I read that the turn signal is part of the computer, and not a relay...but i maybe wrong here. Can anyone confirm/deny this?

Disabling the turn signal

I'm sorry folks, but everytime I read a thread on this sight where someone is complaining about their 05 0r 06 mustang I wonder, why did they spend the money. Complaints like: the radios are junk or the antenna looks like crap or the car is not low enough because there is too much room in the wheelwell or THE TURN SIGNAL MAKES TOO MUCH NOISE!!! This is a retro vehicle folks. Do you remember your 67 mustang. Do your best to make your mustang sound good, look good, run good, feel good but geez folks stop complaining. In spite of all of it's short-comings its still the best buy for the money. Now I know that I'm probably going to get slammed for saying all of this but for all that might be wrong with this vehicle it is still so much fun to drive and turns a lot of heads. So, make it louder, make it run faster, make it bust your neighbors ear drums when you turn your new sound system on but stop complaining.

My Wife has an Impala, and the turn signal is a heck of a lot louder.

Geez guys, lighten up. I said I love my car. However, it doesn't mean I have to love every little thing about my car.

I wish Ford had gotten rid of the key entirely and replaced it with a FOB.

I wish Ford had put a trunk release button in the car.

I wish Ford would have included a ipod adapter for the radio.

I wish Ford would have included a built in remote for my garage door.

Thankfully, many of these shortcomings can be rectified via the aftermarket.

Now, I'll say it again, I wouldn't trade my car for anything. Dollar for dollar, this is the best performance money can buy.

That being said, it doesn't mean I can't see if there are ways to improve my car...

Amen brother! I say that you are lucky to get what you got.
It's a Ford, dude. Plain Jain is their specialty.

Ever heard of "Any color as long as it's black"?
Make it yours.

I like it. I often free-style rap to it.

I hate to burst everyone's bubble but the Ford Focus has the same sounding turn signal.
Lol I was gonna say that the Focus' TS is twice as loud. G/f has a 05 and that thing is twice as loud as the stangs.
