Question about 1988 Ford Taurus
My hazard flashers do work on my Taurus, the turn signals do not(the bulbs are good). I thought it might have been the flasher relay, but the tech. at ford said it could be the actual switch in the steering column. Is there any truth to this statement and can anyone please help me. And if it is the relay can you tell me where it is. Thanx
Yes, it certainly could be the switches in the windshield wiper stalk off of the steering column.
From day one, my (used 14K) 93 Taurus turn signals worked in some positions of the wiper speed and not in other positions of the wiper speed. Fortunately, they always work when the windshield wipers are off.

Hazard and turn signals usually use separate flashers, switch the flashers to see if turn signals work and hazards don't, if so replace the flasher
you need to replace the blinker flasher unit
it is different from the hazard unit
they cost about 4 bucks
the flasher unit is the big round thing in the fuse panel in the dashboard
