Try changing the fuse....even if it looks fine. Then, the flasher....and last, the turn signal cam.....which is part of the turn signal arm assembly (you have to pull the steering wheel off).

2007 Ford Explorer flasher relay


There is no flasher relay , all done electronically by the smart junction box (computer )
The smart junction box (SJB) monitors the multifunction switch position by sending multiple voltage reference signals to the multifunction switch. When the multifunction switch is in the LH or RH TURN positions, or the hazard lamp switch is engaged, that input signal is routed to ground.
When the SJB receives an input from the multifunction switch indicating a request for a turn signal or hazard lamps, the SJB then supplies voltage to the appropriate turn lamps.

Your best bet would be to take it to a qualified repair shop or dealer .

Does any have a wiring schematic for a 98 ford explorer xlt?


Best thing is to do a Web search titled "1998 ford explorer wiring diagram". This will give you results which include fuse boxes and power boxes and color coded wiring routing. Check for other items that are on the same fuse as the turn signals to see if they work. The turn signal flasher unit could also be bad.
