1996 thunderbird signal lights and hazard lights not working, works sometimes however doesn't work at all when the headlights are on.

Last year I had had this problem for over a year then a mechanic fixed and I got in inspected. Then the interior lights stopped working. Now the interior light doesn't work and the hazard light and signal lights have a mind of their own. It is crazy!!!! I need help. The vehicle needs to be inspected!!!

SOURCE: 96 Ford Taurus no turn signals or hazards

Take the turn signal lever and jiggle it, a lot. If they start working, the switch is bad. You can also turn on the hazards and take hold of the button and push it left , right , forward and back and see if they start working. If so, replace the turn signal/ hazard switch.

SOURCE: turn signals stopped working and hazard lights as

Replace your "Flasher Relay", very cheap part and can be picked up from anyplace that sells auto parts. It is 98% of the time located in your fuse panel and is usually round,

Here are a few pictures of what they look like.

On my 2004 impala, the front right turn signal doesn't work, (only works with hazard lights). And the back right signal is fast. The signal "clicking" sound is non stop but on the other hand...


If the turn signal filament of the right front park/turn lamp is known to be OK and the hazard switch is in the normal position, the hazard switch or the turn signal/multi-function switch could be defective

Hazard lights doesn't work


If the hazard lights and turn signal lights don't work then the problem will either be a blown fuse or the trafficator flash can is faulty.

Hazards work but turn signals don't


I'd check your multi-function switch (on your steering column, what you touch to turn your turn signals on). There is a small metal clip on the base of it that tells your car to turn the turn signals on (right or left). Also trace the wires from the mulit-function switch to your turn signal relay and see if you're getting power when the switch is activated.

When i turn the headlights on they pop up, but don't work and the hazard lights on the dash come on--doesn't flash they r just on and the speedometer gauge goes wacky and there is a buzzing sound


I experienced the same symptoms that you described in your post on my 1986 mr2. I originally thought is was a relay or switch so I tested all of them. Every one of them check out functioning properly. After a number of days, I finally traced the problem to a burnt wire that was part of a socket that plugs into a horizontal blue and white panel under the dash on the driver's side just above the fuse block. Apparently the wire had come loose after so many years of bumps and other jarring movement and shorted inside the socket. I cleaned up the socket and wire connector, restripped the wire and put it all back together and made sure the connector was tight on the post. Now it all works pefectly.

2004 Chevy Malibu, both front turn signals are not working. Rear turn signals are fine. Hazards will work in the rear also, but not the front. I replaced the hazard switch in the dash and the problem...


replace both bulbs,, on the chevy they use the new bulbs with the very thin wire that goes into the socket, they have been having problems with the plastic in the socket getting hot and being partially covered, which makes the connection no good,, try this, with a small, screwdriver or if you have one a small pick tool, gently pry the wire outward from the socket,, Just a very little will do the trick,, then put the bulb in the socket, you should be fine after that ,, if the rear lights are working, then nothing is wrong with the signal switch, since they are on the same circuit. your hazard switch you replaced was probably ok also. if this doesn't work, do the same thing on the bulbs,, to insure a good contact

I have a 91 Ford T-Bird 3.8 and my signal lights stoped working. I have checked the fuses and that doesn't seem to be the problem. My Hazard Flasher still work and everything on the signal switch (...


I had the same problem. It is your flasher relay switch. That piece is under the dash on the driver side. It is a little black box. I got it at my ford dealer for about $60.00. Easy fix. :)

No break lights, high beams, or turn signal lights


Do they work intermittently? Do your low beams go out sometimes when you put on turn signal? Do hazards work sometimes and if you play with switch they work off and on? I just had a problem with headlights would go off if I put on turn signal and if I jiggled the turn lever they would come back on and had trouble with all light working intermittently, brakes, turn and hazard. It was a Turn signal switch problem.The contacts in the switch were bad, all corroded and green when I took it apart. I know you wouldn't think this would affect brake lights but hey all run through this switch because of hazards and high beams. I got a new switch from dealer and all is working great now. Here's a link a link I used for switch replacement instructions. http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f11/write-up-replace-turn-signal-switch-97-xj-620147/
If it isn't a fuse or wiring issue I would look into the switch.

Jetta headlights not working


Ignition switch will cause you to loose your head lights and turn signals. You will still be able to start the car and hold the switch for your brights but normal function is gone. Check it out it usually only runs about $20-$30 for replacement part but you need a special puller to get to it.

Location of flasher for turn signal


  1. Access the COMBINATION Turn Signal and Hazard INDICATOR FLASHER on the Left-Hand (drivers) side of the instrument panel in the fuse junction panel.
  1. Remove turn signal flasher/hazard indicator flasher by pulling indicator flasher straight out.
  1. To install, align the terminals of the flasher and press into place.
