Question about 1990 Ford Mustang
Posted by Anonymous on
There are a number of things that could be wrong here. The best way to troubleshoot electrical issues is to work your way back from the device, in this case the lights. Make sure the bulbs are good. If the signalS both stopped working, I imagine all 4 did not go bad simultaneously. The next thing are the relays. These are located under the dash. There are also some in the fuse panel. Check you owners manual for application. The most likely culprit ona 20 year old Ford is the control stick itself. The contacts get all crummy and will open circuit the signal to the relay. You can sometimes get away with cleaning them, but the best bet is to replace since you have already gone through the trouble of getting into the steering column cover. Remove the column cover (there are phillips head screws underneath) and take off the top and bottom plastic cover. You will see the box that houses the turn signal controls. Disconnect the wiring and remove/replace. As I said, you can try to clean the contacts, but I recommend replacing it. If you can find a NOS, OEM replacement or one in good, clean working order.
