2008 ford edge left turn signal lever doesn't stay latched

When I turn on the left turn signal, the lever doesn't always stay latched, with the steering wheel straight. I imagine I will have to get into the steering column to check, any ideas?

    To clarify, sometimes I have to hold the left turn signal by lever by hand as it wont stay on by itself.

SOURCE: 2002 ford expedition: no turn signals

Hello,
Ok well your the lucky owner of an Expediton. I have a few of these trucks in my fleet. The common problem in almost ALL Ford vehicles is the multifunction switch located to the right of your column which is the main switch for you wipers, turn signals, and high beams. Under the plastic column cover is three phillips screws. Remove them and unscrew the tilt lever on the right of the column by spining it with a tight grip counter clockwise. Gently pull the lower cover off and you will see two screws and a large gray plug or it may be black. The internal plastic switch pawl breaks and requires the complete ASSY needs replacing. Remove the plug by pulling out on the plugs tang and pull down on the plug being sure not to pull on the wires for this could create a contact issue later. Remove the screws holding the multi function/ turn signal switch. Replace the switch in reverse of removal. Test the operation before you assemble the column cover.

SOURCE: clicking in steering column

Hi

Check the lower steering column universal joint coupling needle rollers !

Open the hood, and get someone to wiggle the steering wheel, and using a good torch, check the lower steering column joint, for any free play, or if you can hear or feel, the clicking, and check all the clamp bolts and nuts.

Good Luck!
A FixYa rating is appreciated ....Thank you !

All you need is two inexpensive things to fix this. 1. Hammer and 2. WD-40. First, put the key in the ignition and tap it with the hammer. (this should unlock the steering wheel and the iginition) Second, spray some WD-40 in the key opening on the ignition, then put the key in again and proceed to tap it some more with the hammer. (WHEN I SAY TAP THE HAMMER I DO NOT MEAN HIT IT WITH FULL FORCE)... Any who keep put WD-40 and tapping it until you can turn the key without the help of the hammer... (should be at least 4 times) THE PROBLEM IS THAT WITH TIME DEBRI BUILDS UP IN THE IGNITION, AND THIS CAUSES THE STEERING TO LOCK UP WHEN YOU PLACE THE KEY IN THE IGNITION. THE HAMMER UNLOCKS THE SPRINGS IN THE IGNITION AND THE WD-40 CONVERTS THE DEBRI TO LIQUID SO IT CAN CLEAN THE IGNITION...

It may be the 'actuator'. It is a rod that connects the lock cylinder to the ignition switch on the tilt wheel units. It is made of aluminum and often breaks as things become worn.

$35 sounds right for the lever. It definitely sounds like it's your lever acting up as the contact seems to be stuck

Multi-function switch,(Wipers turn signals cruise) , this may sound crazy, but if you can get to the screws & remove it, smack the unit on a table top 2-3 times & re-try.
Let me know what happens. This DOES work on all Ford U-Haul trucks!

Turn signal lights not working. turn on emergency flashers and the right signal flashes and bath back lights and the front right flash but the left front don't. any idea's


The 2 filament on the LH Front turn signal is most likely burned out, ...........or the ground to it, & the entire socket needs replaced. Caution lights, send signals to ALL FRONT & REAR lights. All turn signal lights must be in working order, as it is a "pulsating" currect surge sent to the bulbs, LH or RH, depending which direction you wisk to turn. If 1 filament is broken, the circuit is incomplete, & no flash will occur. Usually you will get one light that stays on, & the front or rear missing lighting, is the one whichis the culpret.

How do i open the hood.


there should be a lever that is on the bottom edge of dash that is under the steering wheel along the trim. if the handle is broken you can use pliers to grab the cable and pull it to get the hood to realse. if you found all that and i seems to work ok then when pulling the release lever have a friend hit or shake the hood to get it to pop up a little so that you can open it all the way.
