Question about 1998 Ford Explorer
I would think the multi function switch is bad. if you move the lever slightly, do the turn signals start flashing again? does it happen for both left and right signals? perhaps the connector on the switch has become loose. to inspect the switch, remove the ignition lock cylinder. on the underside of the steering column, there is a hole to access the pin to remove the cylinder. insert the key and turn to the on position. using an 1/8" punch or equivalent tool, insert it into the hole. depress the pin, and pull the cylinder out. to re-install, depress the pin and turn the key to the run position. install the cylinder ensuring it is completrly seated. turn the key to the off position. remove the steering column covers. access screws from the underside of he column. use a phillips screwdriver.
disconnect negative battery cable and wait 2 minutes before starting procedure to disarm airbag
BUT FIRST TRY REPLACING THE FLASHER UNIT
it is located to the right of the steering column under the dash.
