'97 mercury sable& '97 ford E-450: turn signal & e.flashers don't

Identical problem. Turn signals and emergency flashers stopped working. fuses for both are good. changed anyway along with new flashers. on the ford E-350 I even put in new turn signal switch unit with no result.all other functions i.e. wipers and washers work. all other instruments, radio, headlights, tail lights, brake lights, dome light work. I know someone out there knows about this particular to '97 ford products problem. I've got a bald spot on my head from scratchin.

    Since both the turn signals and emergency flasher are out, do they receive power from the same source? Is it protected by a fusable link and if so, where? Are there 2 flashers? I found the listed flasher on both vehicles and on the pickup, replaced the turn signal assembly with no result.

Hi..these may be one of the reasons.
one is the relay problem
second is the wiring problem which leads
to the turn signals
third is the switch problem
these might be one of the reason which could
lead to the problem.
thank u..

Sir,

Your problem appears to be the turn signal flasher or turn signal switch – it may need to be replaced. if all the other lights work then the fuse is ok the problem is elsewhere . I would feel under the dash around the steering column for the flasher unit when the 4-way flashers are on, feel for it, and whatever location it is in check for another flasher unit connection and you would have found the culprit I hope this helps

thanks
good luck

    Also I would suggest that you start looking for an open ground circuit somewhere in the engine compartment as this would be the ONLY correlation of the brake lights interacting with the front turn signal and dash turn signal lights.
    There is a possibility that you have developed a problem within the steering column of which would be only the other possibility as the BRAKE LIGHT wire is shorted across to the front turn signal wires.

    This is EXTREMLY rare and I would concentrate on a loose and or missing ground circuit in the engine compartment when the heads were worked on. It is HIGHLY probable that a ground wire was not properly attached and or came loose and what you are getting is a BACK FEED thru the brake and turn signal circuits.

Where is the flasher unit for 1999 mercury mountaineer?


It's the same flasher unit for both turn signals AND emergency flashers. Even though one side works, the other won't. If you have a good fuse for the turn signals, then replace the flasher unit.

Sounds like the flasher unit to me. Normally the emergency flasher and turn signal are separate.

Turn signal don't work or the flashers?


If you still have flasher problems, I read on Google to spray WD-40 down in and around the hazzard flasher button, then press it up and down several times...and BINGO...all flashers and signals worked again....just had some dirt and dust in the wiring....

96 ford tarus turn signal


The turn signals and the emergency flasher are controled by a single electronic flasher unit. It looks like an electronic relay and is located on the far left underside of the dash. It is on a mounting bracket and has a three wire connector. If you do not hear this clicking when you use the turn signals or the emergency flasher it may be bad. Just remove the connector and remove the one screw holding the flasher to the bracket. Be sure the replacement is identical to the old one and compare them before installing the new one.

You may want to also check the turn signal bulbs also. Other causes would be bad signal and flasher switches, bad bulb connectors, and opens or shorts in the wiring.
