Most likely your dash light panel has lost its ground and is grounding through the turn signal indicator lamps.

SOURCE: flashing issues

Check the lamp sockets and housings for water, it sounds like you have a short circuit between the park and signal lamps, I would suspect it is in one of the right hand side lights, remove the bulbs and clean out the sockets, check for corrosion inside the socket, especially at the base where the bulb get ist power. Check the condition of the wires, look for exopsed wires.

Hope this is of some help.

SOURCE: Hazards stuck, dash is dark when headlights on

I had a similar problem with my 2002 Taurus. I removed the dash and pulled out the display behind the steering wheel. I reseated all the light bulbs behind the display. Everything has worked fine since. You will find more info on how to do this if you search the internet.

No dash lights when headlights are turned on. Everything works fine on my vehicle EXCEPT today the panel lights don't work. Turn signals, hazard blinker, oil gauge, rpm gauge, speedometer, drive shift...


there is a regulator for the display brightness, you may have it turn'd down or it has stopped working;. it controls the brightness at which the dash lights are. usually has a speedo sign on it. goes up and down. it works with the main light and is conecter to them on the same lighting board if it has gone then a new light swtch control switch will be needed.

On my 96 mercury villager if I use the hazard signal my turn signal not working. Sometimes turn signal will work when using hazard couple times. what is wrong with it? how do I fix it?


all those things go through a turn signal switch, on the fords i believe you can replace it without removing the steeering wheel, its kind of a big job

does the instrument panel lights come on when you turn on the park lights only (no headlights)? If not it could be the switch itself.
