Question about 1998 Ford Expedition

1 Answer

The turn signals stopped working on my 1998 ford expedition. The high beams work when switched, as well as the wiper blades when turned on (full or intermitent). Is the problem the turn switch? If so, where is it located?

So what youre saying is the wipers work when the headlights are on
but the wipers dont work when the headlights are off?

I would suspect the turn signal switch is bad. I believe the switch on your S-10 controls
the wipers as well as switching from high beams to low beams. Since that switch is related
to the control of both headlights and wipers.

Could also be the headlight switch. The wiring harness from the turn signal switch plugs
into the headlights switch. I would replace the headlight switch first since you can get one
for around $25. Turn signal switch costs $150-$200. Maybe a little more or less for your vehicle.

Is this both the high beams and low beams that do not work ?

If you checked all 3 fuses with a meter ( with the headlamp in Low position for both low beam fuses or in high for the high beam fuse ), the next items to test are the MFS ( MultiFunction Switch ) and the main headlamp switch ( test not look at it ).

My 1999 ford ranger high beams will not come on. When i turn them on, the lights go out any suggestions?


if you are sure the high beams are not defective you will need to replace the high beam switch on the steering column which is part of the turn signal and wiper switch.

Turn signals and wipers don't work but high beams and curise cont


check your charging system the voltage at the battery should be 12.85 Volts WITHOUT the engine running and 13.2-14.5 Volts with the engine RUNNING. If the voltage is low it probably means the alternator is at fault.

2002 ford expedition: no turn signals


Hello,
Ok well your the lucky owner of an Expediton. I have a few of these trucks in my fleet. The common problem in almost ALL Ford vehicles is the multifunction switch located to the right of your column which is the main switch for you wipers, turn signals, and high beams. Under the plastic column cover is three phillips screws. Remove them and unscrew the tilt lever on the right of the column by spining it with a tight grip counter clockwise. Gently pull the lower cover off and you will see two screws and a large gray plug or it may be black. The internal plastic switch pawl breaks and requires the complete ASSY needs replacing. Remove the plug by pulling out on the plugs tang and pull down on the plug being sure not to pull on the wires for this could create a contact issue later. Remove the screws holding the multi function/ turn signal switch. Replace the switch in reverse of removal. Test the operation before you assemble the column cover.
