That could be a fuse or a relay failure. Both the fuses and flashers should be found under the dash on the drivers side.
Hope this helps.

SOURCE: very heavy steering on escort xr3i

A lot of escorts didn`t have power steering until 1993.
You can check under the bonnet.
Look down the drivers side of the engine.
If you see a short drive belt going from the crank pulley to the alternator.
Then it doesn`t have power steering.
Please let me know what you find and I will be able to help.
Good luck

SOURCE: Having applied WD40 into the fuse box to clean it,

a bad thing to do. The oil will stop continuity to your circuits. Disconnect the ground cable to the battery and flush the oil out with solvent and let dry thoroughly overnight or blow dry with an air hose till dry and let stand for an hour. Now you can start at square one again to see what your problem may be if so

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.
