My turn signal fuse continually blows. I can replace it and within 10 more cycles of the turn signal switch it will blow again. I have checked my bulb connections and they seem fine. Do you have any other ideas for me to try? Thanks.
You might need a Turn Signal Column Switch, I have a 1993 Nissan Pickup and my fuse blew all the time. I dexed that problem i have some wires in the back of the truck that was rubbing on the frame. Now my running lights are not working and when i turn on my head light one will come on so i will have to turn on and off about 10 times then both of them will come on, so my turn signal switch is bad.

You still have a fuse shorted out/blown somewhere, get a test light and turn the lights on and test the fuses, if a fuse is blown you will have a light on one side of the fuse but not the other side. A 12 volt test light cost less than $5
Most likely a short in the directional circuit. Start at the blubs and disconnect the connectors at the bulb sockets. disconnect one at a time and see if the fuse continues to blow. When the fuse stops blowing you have found which circuit it is. Also, this could be the stalk switch on the steering column. disconnect and see if the fuse blows, and don't forget the 4 way flasher switch also. Lastly, pull the relay and check if the fuse still blows.
you have a short in one of the light sockets or a worn wire from the wiring harness. could be the flasher assembly. are the turn signals different bulbs from the brake lights? Does using the brakes blow the fuse? (Rear lights or brake light switch on brake pedal). left or right turn signal blowing the fuse will tell which side has the short. 4 ways only, replace the relay.
I'm not sure what you mean do you mean the emergency flasher
that's this what is happening exactly are the hazard flashers not working or is it the signals are not working or both ? before you spend any $$$ please check the fuses for both also go to every light bulb socket for the front parking/turn signals and the taillights and check for blown bulbs (if so if they are wet the lights leaking in water) if not change the bulbs and recheck again if bulbs are blowing out or fuses keep blowing the unit above may be shorted out inside for the hazards or the turn signal switch you can check by unplugging them and replacing the fuse then plug one in if the fuse blows you found the component that is the problem a wire may have broken off to so check each socket and a good length of the wires for breakage or the wires are exposed/bare copper touching the body blowing the fuse below is your turn signal switch to get to either one of these you must take off the plastic covers on the steering column everything that I have listed could be the cause here so the process of elimination will help you find the problem also check your owners manual or download it from ford for fuse location
sound's like a earthing problem , try a continuity test from blower LIVE to chassis , if get continuity then def got a wiring problem , very difficult to diagnose without seeing vehicle , get a auto electrician
There should be a switch to bright and dim them. it also controls a/c panel. ash tray, radio, glove box. Pink/Black wire should have 12 V coming out of headlight switch to the illumniation switch. If not, fuse may be bad.
