1998 Ford Ranger XLT turn signals, hazzard flasher not working
My 1998 Ford Ranger XLT P/U turn signals, hazzard flasher and license plate lights no longer work. All fuses check OK. Bulbs are OK. I suspect the flasher may be the problem, however, I'm not certain where it is located and without purchasing a replacement is their a way to troubleshoot the problem first?

Your turn signal flasher is separate from the hazard flasher. Replace the turn flasher.
Both the turn signal flasher and the hazard warning flasher are mounted on the fuse panel on the truck. To gain access to the fuse panel, remove the cover from the lower edge of the instrument panel below the steering column. First remove the two fasteners from the lower edge of the cover. Then pull the cover downward until the spring clips disengage from the instrument panel.
The turn signal flasher unit is mounted on the front of the fuse panel, and the hazard warning flasher is mounted on the rear of the fuse panel.
Found very detailed assistance and instructions, FREE on the Ranger Station Forum. It is nice being able to go on-line and find lots of free information from fellow American Ford Ranger owners and not be asked for $$$.
If you want the details let me know and I will send it to you for $19.95 or $39.95 if you want immediate response.
the turn singnal switch is called a multifunction switch. this controls both your hazzards and the turn singnals.this could possibly be your problem.but before you buy this part that is over $100. try to locate your hazzard flasher or your turn singnal flasher relay under the dash. this is most likely your problem.
The hazards are on a seperate fuse to the indicators, on the inside of the fuse box cover it will tell you which fuse it is, simply replace it with one of the same rating and your hazards should work, if not come back to me
