Question about 1999 Ford Explorer

1 Answer

Turn signals work intermittantly

Sometimes the turn signals work, sometimes they don't. They will work ok for a couple of weeks and then quit altogether for a few days, then start working again for a while. Seems to be getting worse. Sometimes when they do work, I can hear a "buzzing" sound coming from behind the dash area somewhere (???). The emergency flashers (hazard lights) always work, no problem there. Can't be a blown fuse or the turn signals would never work until the fuse was replaced. Could this be a relay? The mutifunction switch?

Thanks!

    Thanks for your input, Mr. Chronic. I will ohm the switch's terminals to check for continuity whenever I get a chance to take it all apart.

The best place to start is your owners manual. Your manual should have a description of the fuse boxes and the relay center in it.

Test the relay, make sure the flasher relay connection is sound or just replace the relay to see if your intermittent is resolved.
