I do not have any turn signals or hazard light on my 2000 ford focus zetec how do i correct this


There is a flasher unit that controls both the normal indicators and hazard flashers, on a 98 ford escort it is fixed to the base of the indicator stalk switch, if you remove the shroud that covers the switches around the top of the steering column you can see the flasher unit, usually it is black and just plugs in to the bottom of the hazard and indicator switch. The unit should have an ignition supply to it as well as a perm ant supply when the hazard switch is pushed down. Sometimes these switches get sticky contacts so if you bang the switch on and off a few times it can sometimes make the contacts work and then then all the indicators start working again.

I cant locate the turn signal flasher


Lots of Fords were built with turn signal flashers and on different years and models they put them in differsbt plaCES. The most modern ones with the hazard flasher switch in the middle of the dash the flasher is in the hazard switch. You have to replace the switch to replace the flasher. I've found that punching the hazard switch on and off with the car running and the trun signal on that some of them start working asgain. Parts stores have some of them others have to be bought atr the dealer. If the car as preety new I've got most of them to work some just by turning them on and off many times.

Both of the rear turn signals stopped working at the same time, but everything else seems to work. Do you know what can cause this to happen? I changed one of the bulbs and it didn't work.


There is a turn signal flasher under dash...most have a flasher for the emergency signals and one for the turn signals...some have one flasher....but check fuses first...normally it is fuse burnt...if you can locate the flasher normally they will get abnormally warm when bad......it should look like a round or square silver shiney or black cube.........if these are good with ign.on hold turn signal lever down firmly ...if it works replace turn signal unit.....if none of this works you have to troubleshoot wiring...
...normally yellow wire is left turn and green wire is right turn...black or white is ground red is stop light....but normally it is a blown fuse or flasher.

My rear turn signal was not working. I changed the bulb and tried again and this time none of my signals are working, nor my hazard lights. I changed the fuses inside the car but that did not work.


Last thing to try before trouble shooting the wires for a short is the flasher unit. Usually it is located on or near the fuse box and is normally round and silver about 1" in diameter. If that doesn't work, none of the turn signals or flashers will work. You you had flashers but not turn signals I would say look at the switch on the steering column but you have nothing which points to the flasher control.

Turn signals dont work headlights dont dim heater fan doesnt work


Did all these problems happen all at one time?? If so you may have a bad body ground. Try running a electrical wire from the (-) negative side of the battery to the body and see if this works. Be sure this wire is to a place with no paint as low voltage electricity will not flow through paint.
A). If not try replacing the turn signal flasher for the turn signal problem. This is usually the culprit and it's easiest and cheapest to replace. The turn signal flasher will be found under the driver side dash next to the hazard flasher. Turn the hazard flasher one to locate it. If you want try swapping the turn signal flasher with the hazard flasher to see if this fixes it. They are the same style flasher.
If this doesn't work you may a faulty turn signal switch or some wiring issues.
B). It could as simple as the head lights bulbs need to be replaced, it's rare but I have seen when both bulbs blew at or near the same time. If your able check the voltage at the head sockets.
C). Could be a bad blower motor or switch. I'm not sure if these models have a resistor block or not. The resister block controls the electrical current going to blower motor which controls the speed of the blower fan.
