Re: turn signals dont work
Under the dashboard there is a fuse panel. First, check your fuses and make sure that they are not blown. If they are not, above the fuses tucked high up there are one or two round aluminum things. These are called flashers, this may likely be your problem, though usually with both sides not working it is probably a fuse.

CHECK TURN SIGNAL FUSE IN THE FUSE BOX LOWER LEFT SIDE OF THE INSTRUMENT PANEL.IF FUSE OKAY PROBLEM COULD BE THE FLASHER IN THE FUSE BOX ITS A LARGE ROUND METAL TIN LOOKING FUSE.YOU SEE IT IN THE INTERIOR FUSE BOX.IF FLASHER GOOD.TURN SIGNAL SWITCH COULD BE FAULTY.SHAKE TURN SIGNAL SWITCH WIRES CHECK FOR SHORTS.
its in the fuse box, round with 2 spade pins on older models, on newer ones they used morep ins...but same logic.
cycle and release your HAZZARD switch a few tymes. Hazzard switch has an over-ride for the turn signals, and sticky switches will sometymes cause a NO FLASH problem that a cycle of the switch can correct. If lights still dont flash, flasher unit has probably failed/
On your 98 Dakota.
Is equipaded with a single Flasher.
If you replace all ready.
Check the FUSE # 10, 15 amp..
On the Fuse box. left side of Dash.
and the FUSE D 25, amp. On engine compartment Fuse box.
Check the proper funtion of the HAZARD switch.
Bacause if the Hazard switch is bad the turn signal don't will work. Match the OLD flasher with the New one.
If after of this still not work.
Remove the steering wheel cover, locate the Turn signal switch connector and with a TEST Light check power with the Key ON
12v. to the RED wire and PINK wire..
If you found 12v. check the connection with the switch.
If the connection is good. you will need to replace the turn signal switch.
But if you don't found 12v. You need to look a an open circuit.
And fix it..
I hope this help on your problem..
Thank you for use fixya...
start with a fuse, then go on to a turn signal relay. turn the level left or right on the steering column with the inginition switch on, if the light in the dash lights up but won't flash, it is the turn signal relay.
