Question about 2005 Ford Falcon 4.0
The hazard fuse blows ie blinkers stop working but blinker fuse is not blowing
There might be a short-circuit somewhere between the fuse box to the light.
I think that somewhere in that region is a wire that touches the body of the car, or something like that.
The body of the car is (most of the time) the mass (the negative of the battery).
For me, it could either be the wire from the fuse box to the light (maybe the rubber coating is damaged?), either the mounting stock of the light bulb (often the problem in household lamps), or the fuse holder which touches the body without any insulation.
Asker's rating & comment
Driving through junk yards, a roadside electrician points out the obvious to me that my taillight is out and he could fix it for $80. After checking for about 45 min. He gets all my lights running. No more blown fuses. He said it was the headlights causing the problems. The wires were touching. Thnk

SOURCE: Blinkers don't work
If you a schematic. pull off your multifunction switch. check for power input. if you have power there it is most likly your multifunction switch. this problem happens often. more with high miles due to switch wear. i can prob send u ford daignosses step later if you want.

Relay or Flasher unit will be located in or near the fuse box,,,your owners manual will tell you where it is,, they are easy to replace, and cheap to buy.

SOURCE: Blinkers stopped working
I have a 1994 F150 and the blinkers and E Flashers were out. I bought some flashers from NAPA and put them in with no effect. I noticed my E Flashers were still on from before when I was trying to switch them on. Turned the E flasher switch to the off positiion and the trun signals with the new Flasher are working. I thought I had another flasher spot around the back of the fuse box but didn't have time to look at it yet, so my E Flashers are still not working.
My turn signals won't work with the E flasher on. ??? Hopefully just that, the Flasher around the back.
