Where is the turn signal relay on an escort 1992

you have a fuse box under the dash and a fuse/relay box under the hood.
Althou many cars will place the flasher/blinker relay under the dash near the brake pedal, and still, some are behind the radio (farther back and close to the floor)
here is the relay you are looking for.
You can turn on the hazard flashers and listen for the ticking sound the flasher makes. Follow the sound and look for a small round or square piece. (the flasher)
You should have one for blinkers and one for hazards.
This flasher is most often the problem.
Relay may be in the area if not under hood.

My turning signals are not working in my 1997 2.2cl acura. when i try to turn on my signals, nothing happens. the direction indicator on my dash doesnt light up either. i have checked the fuse, its good....

it is most likely the flasher unit is faulty, you should find it under the dash on the drivers side, it could be a square or round unit with a connector plug on it,when you remove the connector plug the unit has three terminals on it ......hope this helps.......cheers.

Turning signals not working all the time

Sounds like the blinker relay. Is the emergency flasher switch on the dash above the radio ? If it is the blinkers relay is the same as the emergency relay. If the blinkers stop working pound on the emergency lights switch and if they start working then replace the emergency lights relay switch cause the blinkers is on the same relay as the emergency lights. My 2001 Grand Am does the same and I just hit the emergency lights switch and they start working again.

the flasher is a small canister shape or square like a relay,located on or near fuse box.if blinker on one side works,you can hear [& feel] flasher 'clicking' when it's on.check lights w/4ways on;if all but the rear one are blinking,suspect the wiring.

Blinkers no longer work and have checked all fuzes

The switch and relay which is built inside switch is most likely faulty if fuses and all bulbs are new.

All blinkers light up, none of them blink,is it a fuse or switch? and where is it

There is an item called a dash-pot, it is a relay that when powered up it engages and disengages the power going to the parking lights. It looks like a silver colored marshmallow. It is usually plugged into the fuse panel. I think under your driver side of the dash. Look at the area where all the fuses are. (I am pretty sure that it is still round in 93, but there may be a square one. Go to the parts store and ask for the blinker relay and then look for it in your fuse panel.

Hope that helps

Pt cruiser turn key wont start nothing horn lights work battery ok

I had the same problem.does your key spring back? If it doesn't take out your tumbler remove your starter ignition switch,held on by one srew,remove top and bottom plasticcouple screws,two screws on top to remove blinker switchs and lights.under tumbler casing two small screws hold shift cble remove that and in between starter switch and tumbler the rest off your ignition. remove this at the more than likely at the end the soft metal has broken so instead off it having a square end it's rounded so it can't turn your ignition you will have to replsce that unit .goodluck It has been a real pain in the *** trying ti figure it out.
