You can do two things: you can go to a salvage yard and have them look up in the computer what other steering columns is the same as yours and change the whole thing and the other thing is go to a place that sells electrical parts and see if they can help you figure away to put a by pass switch in it

I do not have any turn signals or hazard light on my 2000 ford focus zetec how do i correct this


There is a flasher unit that controls both the normal indicators and hazard flashers, on a 98 ford escort it is fixed to the base of the indicator stalk switch, if you remove the shroud that covers the switches around the top of the steering column you can see the flasher unit, usually it is black and just plugs in to the bottom of the hazard and indicator switch. The unit should have an ignition supply to it as well as a perm ant supply when the hazard switch is pushed down. Sometimes these switches get sticky contacts so if you bang the switch on and off a few times it can sometimes make the contacts work and then then all the indicators start working again.

Turn signal lights and hazard lights it is the same flasher; the Flasher is located front seating area, driver side, behind dash, mounted on steering column. Do you have power on the white/red wire at the switch?

I would start with testing the multitunction switch that is more than likely faulty.

Hope this helps.

Signal lights will not stay on or they just blink a couple of times and go off


I have seen problems with the turn signal switch/wiper switch. Try wiggling hazard switch on top of steering column to see if turn signals start working if so replace switch if not replace turn signal flasher relay. To find location refer to owners manual. Hope this helps.
