I would think it is a short or bad connection in the wiring harness coming out of the switch.

SOURCE: The turn signal keeps flashing the to the left

I agree. It sounds like a mechanical problem in the turn signal switch in the top of the steering column. Once you pull the trim off the column, it's a fairly easy repair from there. Downside? The turn signal stalk assembly can be rather expensive in most cases. I would consider a used one or finding one on Ebay first, before calling your local dealership.

You have to remove the airbag in the steering wheel. Unplug the battery. Place the steering wheel in the outer most lower position. Turn the wheel and in a certain position in the back using a mirrior you'll see holes. With a small screw driver you can unclip the airbag. Turn the wheel the other way to access the other clip. There are 2. Once removed unclip; the harness connector (yellow from the airbag and place it so the vw symbol of the airbag is facing upwards so if it does go off it won't fly upwards. **You should use an antistatic ground on yourself not to deploy the airbag. then use a 12mm triple square drive socket to remove the steering wheel. note the position as it can be placed in several positions. Behind the wheel is the steering angle sensor/ clockspring. DO NOT TURN the clockspring and make sure it stays in it's position when reinstalled or it will break. From there you can remove the trim on the column and access the switches. When reinstalling the airbag VW states to reinstall everything final, close all windows, put the key ON position get out of the car close the door, and only then put the battery back. This is because if the airbag does go off for any reason you will not be in the car when you put the key on. If it does go off the key will already be on and you will be safe. This is the procedure from VW and they state that if damge to other components are affected by key on and battery connected it is still safer than getting an airbag in your face. Just precautionnary. Note the airbag clips are hard to access to remove it. You have to place the flat end of the screw driver on the upper part of the clip and kin of press it downwards. Let me know, but if you are not comfortable or not experienced in airbags do not attempt this yourself.!!!

1983 ranger turn signal lights flash quickly on both sides. Hazard lights work. Steering wheel felt locked and heard a breaking sound that seemed to come from the steering column.


fast flashing usually means a bulb is burnt... have you checked them all ??? or did you wire in a trailer plug and did something wrong ???

Where is the turn signal relay located


Hi Bernard:
The FLASHER is located under the driver dash it is a round fuse (it's located adjecent to the fuse block, and it's square, yellow in color).

Also, I suggtes to check for power at the junction box under the dash at terminals 1 and 6 with the combination flasher removed. Then check with a powered test lamp if test lamp lights pin 7 when signaling left and pin 8 when signaling to the right.

If the test results are correct, replace the Combination Flasher/DRL (Daytime Running Lights) module.

Gain access to the multifunction switch connector. Locate the Light Blue/Yellow wire and ground it. This should activate the right side turn signals. Locate the Light Blue/White wire and ground it. This should activate the left side turn signals. If both sides do work, the problem is in the multifunction switch. Verify the Black wire in the same connector is grounded at all times. If so, replace the multifunction switch.

Here is some reading on how the system works.

ELECTRONIC DAYTIME RUNNING LIGHT (DRL)
The Combination Flasher/DRL is a module providing turn signal, hazard warning, and daytime running light functions (for Canadian vehicles), and has been designed with internal relays to take advantage of low current switching requirements in the vehicle. It is plugged into the junction block at positions three and four, where all wiring associated with its operation is terminated. The junction block is adjacent to and left of the steering column of the vehicle.

On vehicles built for use in the United States, only position four is used. Vehicles built for use in Canada utilize both positions three and four.

To gain access to the device, remove the lower steering column cover and knee blocker.

The combination-flasher/DRL may be operated in its hazard warning mode either with or without the ignition circuit being active. However, in order to operate in the turn signal mode or the DRL mode, the ignition circuit must be completed to the module.

While the combination-flasher portion is idle, there is no current drawn through the module. The device does not become active in the turn signal or hazard warning modes until a signal ground circuit is supplied to either of the turn signal inputs or the hazard warning input. With the ignition OFF, there is no current drawn through the module.

While the ignition is ON, the front turn signal filaments are illuminated steadily thus providing the DRL function. The DRL function may be inhibited by applying a signal ground input from either the park brake circuit or the headlamp relay activation circuit.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I will appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

1992 Ford Ranger Turn signal/Hazard light issue


Can you just check to make sure the ignition key switch is not staying over to far and not backing off when you try to start it. I had a truck that did that and it messed up my turn signals until I brought the key switch back a little after starting it. Just a simple idea. Be kind with your rating for me. Raz

Where is the turn signal relay, hazard relay, and flasher for a 2003 Ford F150? My turn signals do not work (inside or outside), but 3 out of 4 outside lights work when the hazards are on, but with only 1...


It is not the flasher if the hazards work, it is 1 flasher for both turn signals and the hazard lamps. It is in a relay block ( along with the blower motor relay ) under the dash, about in line with the steering wheel column ).

Try tilting the steering wheel all the way up, and test again.

The other quick test is to cycle the hazard switch a few times, to see if it cleans the contacts for the turn signal on the MFS,

No turn signals but flashers work


There a two modules 1 for the turn signals and 1 for the flashers. Look under your dash around the steering wheel and fuse box area for one that is in the wiring harness.
