SOURCE: 1991 Ford E150 turn signals do not work,emergancy flashers flash constantlly unless the flasher relay is unplugged from fuse block

Hi,

If I understand you right based on your post/description, the signal lights would still turn on even if any or both of the flasher relays are removed. Should this be the case, then the signal lights are not getting the power from the flasher relays but from the brake light circuit.

Perhaps your concern is not with any of the flasher, but simply missing or loose ground more particularly with the rear lights. Perhaps you could try determining which of the wires for the brake lights and signal lights (as they come out of the light assembly) would be ground . A test and even possibly a temporary workaround is to hard wire a second ground connection from the determined ground wire of the lights and attach it to any conveniently located bolt or screw to the body. it may be to your advantage to do this on all the rear lights assembly.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Possibly blew out the hazard flasher unit. Check the flasher unit (usually there are 2, one for directionals and one for flashers).

Do you have to remove more than the kick panel to get to main turn signal flasher on 98 dodge ram 1500


I would look in the fuse panel first. Most flashers and relays are now mounted with the fuses.

How to change the signal flasher


Models from 98 on use a combination flasher. This flasher is mounted either on the front or on the back of the junction block.
The combination flasher is a smart relay that functions as both the turn signal system and the hazard warning system flasher. It is designed to handle factory-fitted equipment. If aftermarket equipment is added to this circuit (such as trailers with lights), the flasher will automatically try to compensate to keep the flashing rate the same.
  1. The flasher contains sophisticated internal circuitry that cannot be tested with conventional equipment. Substituting a new unit for a suspected defective version is the easiest test.
  2. On air bag-e quipped vehicles, disconnect the battery negative cable(s) and wait two minutes from the air bag capacitor to discharge.
  3. Remove the junction block cover. If the flasher is accessible, grasp and pull the flasher from the fuse panel.
  4. If the flasher is not mounted on the outside of the junction block, remove the steering column cover from the instrument panel. Reach through the opening to access the fuse block on the back of junction block. Pull off the flasher.
  5. Inspect the socket for corrosion or any other signs of a bad contact.
To install:
  1. Install a new flasher in the connector.
  2. Install the fuse panel cover.

99' dodge ram 1500 signal light stopped working


If they went out completely it is probably the flasher unit. I just had to replace mine. It's on the fuse block on the left end of the dash. It's the big square unit on the bottom left of the fuse block (looks more like a relay than a fuse). Very simple fix, just unplug and plug in a new one. Part was $11.99 at the auto parts store.

Flasher location for signals


Hello
Welcome to FY
It is located on the drivers side, at the left side of instrument panel located on fuse block. It simply unplugs. They are usually round about the size of a silver dollar with 3 plugs. Can be plastic or metal
