Remove the flasher and interrogate the flasher socket with a volt/ohmmeter. There should be one hot terminal with the key off and two hot terminals with the key on. There should be one terminal with zero ohms to chassis ground. The other two terminals should have a few ohms to ground when either the turn signal or hazard switch is on. From these tests and the diagram below, you can determine where the problem is. Report results if you need more help.

Hope you can read diagram? Did you check for voltage at turn fuse? Use a test light, goes hot with key on. Use a chassis ground when checking for voltage. The voltage wire from flasher to multifunction switch for turn is orange with black tracer, check that also. Let us know what you find?

In most circuits the flasher wiring from the indicator switch runs through the hazard switch which means the hazard switch and associated wiring is fairly complex. The hazard switch is responsible for many indicator faults especially when it is little used.

As you definitely have a fault with the hazard switch or circuit, I suggest you locate and rectify it and you could find it also cures the flasher problem.

SOURCE: flashers, turn signals and brake lights

Try shaking the turn signal lever rapidly. Not to the point of breaking it but you do want to apply a little extra pressure. move it in every direction for about 5 to 10 minutes. do not spray anything into the switch as it will collect dust and dirt in the future. This should get everything freed up and working in the multifunction switch. That sounds like where the problem is coming from.

Did you use a wiring adapter? this plugs into the stock system to properly power the trailer lights. the other thing is you could have a short to ground in the trailer wiring, especially where it comes out under the jeep.

Turn signals were working...but blinking fast. now they don't work at all...replaced fuse in side panel near door and still nothing. Everything else works..headlights, wipers, hazards..what gives?


you have a separate flasher for the turn signals.this is what your problem sounds like.if all your lights are working including the signal indicator on the dash then it will be the signal flasher.if you turn on the hazard flashers and locate it under the dash, this will show you what the turn signal flasher will look like.then you will have to look for the flasher unit on the fuse panel that looks like the hazard flasher.replace the turn signal flasher and you will have your signal flashers again

My cars signals and flashers do not work and brake lights are working . all fuses are fine what should i do


This sounds ike the multi-function switch located in the steering column. The switch can be replaced by removing the ignition switch, the upper an lower steering column covers (there are 3 screws recessed in the lower half of the column cover) Remove the 2 torx head screws from the muti-function switch (which includes the turn signal lever and the wiper switch) unplug the wiring harnesses and replace the switch.

Before doing all of that check to see if the flasher unit itself is ok. It is ocated on the back side of the fuse panel under the dash.

MY TURN SIGNAL QUIT WORKING IS THERE A FLASHER


My service manual states that the '02 T+C has a combination turn signal/hazard flasher/daytime running lights module which is located on the junction block, adjacent to and left of the steering column. To access it, you must remove the steering column lower cover and knee pad panel. There is also a fuse for turn signal/hazard flasher. If none of them work, check the fuse 1st.

Turn signals are not working at all, all bulbs are fine, fuses are all good, high beams work, wipers work, just nothing happens when you turn the turn signals on


This sounds like the flasher unit is defective. They are usually located adjacent to the steering column up under the dash. They can be purchased at any auto parts store and simply unplug the old one and plug in a new one. It could be the turn signal switch, but the most likely culprit is the flasher unit. Good luck and I hope this helps you out.

Turn signals don't work on '89 taurus gl. Fuse is good, flasher is new. I tried a different turn switch on the column but still nothing. Wiper, washer and highbeams work on the switch just not the trun...


still sounds like the multi-function switch on the column. If you have old one, take apart and look for discolored coating on copper strips. clean with emery cloth and add di-electric grease.
