Ford Falcon 2004 Q&As
Check out real-world situations relating to the Ford Falcon 2004 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.
Ford Falcon: Indicator failure
When a globe in one of the indicators goes out the other indicator on the same side as the one that has failed will flash quickly. At the same time the indicators in the instrument cluster will flash quickly and the audible indicator will click quickly. Turn each of the indicators on and check that they are working. If they aren't it suggests a deeper problem, which could be a fault with the cluster. One thing for sure it won't fix itself. If you want to get a second opinion take it to an auto electrician.

It's not possible to say with any certainty without inspecting the car, which is what you should have done. But on what you have told us I'd be looking at the suspension bushes and shock absorbers in the front-end.
Ford Falcon 2004: Shuddering
I suspect you have a vacuum leak, probably caused by a cracked or split vacuum fitting on the brake booster.

I'm not aware of any aftermarket systems that you could have fitted to your car. The best and cheapest way to get the safety the systems provide is to update to a later model already fitted with them.
