Take it back to the shop that replaced the switch. They should recheck their work and maybe didnt reconnect it, sometimes it happens.

I can't find my flashers in my 99 dodge caravan..They are somewhere in my dash. My blinkers and hazards are not working. I've replaced my fuze and blinker relay, also the switch on my steering column

Three places they use to hide them. On the front of the fuse panel, on the back of the fuse panel and hanging off the steering column under the dash, close to the firewall. I don't know the year they started, but the hazard switch has the flasher built into it.

Radio and blinkers fail unless u shake the keys

This sounds like the ignition switch needs to be replaced. These are very typical symptoms of a common problem in these vehicles. It is probably not related to anything you did, but be sure you don't have a lot of weight hanging from your keyring.

I have a 99 ford explorer. My blinkers/hazzards are not working. When i turn on the parking lights, it does turn on the blinker lights. So I know it has to be a fault from the switch to the lights. They...

Yes, that is the problem with that white wire; it is the power- in source for the blinkers. A new harness may not be necessary, unless there really is a clip and you can't replace it. But on many of those connectors, there is no extra clip or retainer to hold then in. What holds them in is a small cut out projection on the end terminal that snaps into place inside the connector. If that projection doesn't stick up just a bit, the terminal end will not stay in place in the connector. If your terminal has this little projection, take a knife and pry it up, then insert it back into the connector. You may hear it tick into place, maybe won't hear it, but if you pull on the wire pretty good, and it won't come back out, then it is solidly retained. Better take off the negative battery cable before you start messing with that hot wire. Easy to blow a fuse if that wire touches metal again.
Hope you get it. Post back with results.
By the way, you are mistaken with the park lights and blinker lights- two separate circuits, two different wires going to the same bulb. It is a two filament bulb- the park lights are wired into one filament, and the turn signals, hazards, and brake light signal all share the other filament inside the two filament bulb. If you were to expose the bulb and look at it while it is glowing, you will see. The park light filament is less intense, the brake (and blinkers) filament is more intense-it glows brighter. But you are correct about the wire hanging out.
Good luck.

Toyota blinker makes noise when the blinkers aren't on.

You need to replace flasher unit. This regulates the flashing speed. Check under the drivers side dash (it may hang amongst wires or in a fuse box) or under bonnet where all the large fuses are (these will be in a covered box). Sounds like under dash because of noise. Google search flasher units to see what the look like.

You may need to back up a bit on the wiring. Sounds like you have power crossing over the light circuit to the PCM which is what's keeping your engine on even after the key is off. That short may be in the portion of the wiring in the steering column since you have blinker issues as well.

Good luck and be safe!

My brake lights and hazard blinkers don't work on my 1990 F350. we have checked the fuses and replaced the bulbs and they still don't work. plz help!!!

you need to replace the flasher relay... it's under the dash board either mounted in the fuse panel (larger then a regular relay) .... or it's just hanging under the dash by inself.


Please take a moment to rate this solution thanks

The problem could be the wiring connecting to the lights, you need to check them for bare wires. Look them through for any metal hanging out of the rubber insulation. You may need to get new wiring.

Blinkers don't work even when I replaced the fuse

1st have you fixed the short that caused the fuse to blow? If you did or it was a trailer wiring shor then replace the flasher module, that is the most likely cause of the present problem.
