First check the turn signal bulb socket and make certain it is clean and free of corrosion and dirt. If it is clean then most likely your turn signal sending unit is going bad. Most people think that a sending either works or it doesn't, but there is a gray area there and it can operate intermittently.

SOURCE: 1998 ford escort wagon brake lights out. bulbs and fuses changed.

have you tested the brake light switch? it is located at the top of the arm the brake pedal is attached to, it is very common for the wires to that switch to break inside the plastic insulation, the switch testing goes like this, there should be 12 volts present at both sides of the switch with the brake pedal depressed and one side without the pedal depressed.

Both turn signals on my 1998 Ford Escort zx2 don't flash.


The 98 Escort is actually a Mazda 323 with Ford trim. It uses a solid state flasher relay for both turn signals and hazard lights.
The relay is behind the speedometer. My guess is the relay has died.
You can look it up online or check with your local auto parts store to get a visual.

This is the indicator to tell you that either the front or rear turn signal bulb for the direction that blinks rapidly has burnt out. To test this, place the car in park and engage the rapidly blinking turn signal (the engine does not need to be running). Step out and look at the turn signals to find the culprit and go to the autoparts store to buy another (if you have the money, you should just replace both as the other may go out soon).
