Question about 1998 Ford Taurus

1 Answer

Turn signals acting up

Some times my turn signals work just fine. At other times the turn signals either start to signal and quit or they won't start to signal at all. Asked mechanic at Auto Zone because I thought it might be an easy fix with a new flasher part but he said no since they worked periodically. Said the dash would have to be taken a part to get to the problem - what ever that might be.

Check the multi function switch(turn signal switch) sometimes dirt will get in the contacts and cause what you're concern is. Will most likely have to replace switch.

Both of my turn signals quit working at the same time... all the fuses are fine and the flashers still work....


There might be a flasher for "Hazard lights" and one for turn signals. Probably same part, swap them and see if turn signals start working, and hazards quit working.

What is causing my turn signals to blink very erractically on my 1996 F350?


Turn signal circuit works off of resistance values, if a bulb goes out then the resistance value changes and causes the blinker to work faster, you most likely have a bulb that occasionally quits working for whatever reason, prob have a bulb going bad..you just have to be able to check all the lights when it's acting up..

Turn Signals quit working


Sounds like the turn signal flasher is going bad. The easy way to find wher the flasher is hidden is turn the turn signal on and find the clicking, that is the flasher. The emergency flashers work fine because they use a different flasher.

hi roberto
its probably the small copper contacts in the plastic unit that encompasses the steering column this can be purchased and refitted quite easily by removing the steering wheel,removing the securing screws unplugging the electrical loom plug and slipping over the steering column. replace new unit in reverse . probably caused by over-exadurated movement of the signalling lever
