The turn signal and hazard flasher unit is located in the interior fuse
panel located under the driver's left side knee protector. They are
replaced by simply pulling them straight out. Note that the prongs are
arranged in such a way that the flasher must be properly oriented before
attempting to install it. Turn the flasher until the orientation of the
prongs is correct and simply push it firmly in until the prongs are

You probably have a blown fuse if none of the lights work on the front. The interior fuse box is located inside the driver door on the edge of the dash, there should be another fuse box under the hood. If the fuse for the lights isn't blown, then the actual switch may be bad.
The flasher is mounted to the back side of the multi-function switch. To
gain access, the upper steering column cover must be removed (Refer to
23 - BODY/INSTRUMENT PANEL/STEERING COLUMN OPENING COVER - REMOVAL). The
flasher can be removed by pulling it forward. The flasher is serviced
separately from the multi-function switch. The flasher is black in color
for ease of identification (COMBINATION FLASHER LOCATION).
Blown fuse or the flasher relay is defective. It has 2 flasher relays. One for the hazard lights and one for the turn signal lights. The turn signal flasher relay can be located in 2 different locations on your year model. One place it on drivers side under the dash on the right side of the steering column, mounted near the cigarette lighter. It may also be located on the opposite side of the steering column under the dash.
From the1997 Mercury Grand Marquis
4.6L SFI 8cyl repair manual, the
Flasher is located behind left side of instrument panel. The turn signal and emergency flashers are attached to the interior fuse
panel. They are replaced in the same manner as the fuses and circuit
The hazard/turn signal flasher is a small square relay located right above the integrated control unit on the interior fuse block behind the left kick panel.If the flasher unit is functioning properly, you can hear an audible clicking sound when it’s operating.If the turn signals fail on one side or the other and the flasher unit doesn’t make its characteristic clicking sound, look for a faulty turn signal bulb.If both signals fail to blink, the problem may be due to a blown fuse (in the engine compartment fuse box, far upper left as you are facing the auto), a faulty flasher unit, a broken switch or a loose or open connection. If a quick check of the fuse box indicates that the turn signal fuse has blown, and the same thing happens after you replace it, you should check the wiring for a short.
To replace the flasher, simply (may be easier said than done) pull it out of the fuse block.
Installation is the reverse of removal.
Hope this helps you.
I had a flasher relay problem in my 1998 chevy s10.. I located it behind the glove compartment. Drop the compartment all the way down by pushing/pulling on a tab that is located high and to the left in the ceiling of the glove box.Once the box interior drops down ( make sure to empty it first ) the relay is located to the right on a wiring harness. it is secured by a tie -wrap.Don't cut the tie, just force it over and pull out the bad relay.
