First off, this is likely a coincidence more than something you did. The fault is going to lie in the multifunction switch(or turn signal switch) on the column. Do you need replacement instructions/diagrams? I will be happy to provide. These are fairly easy to replace. About 20 - 30 minutes for a novice. No steering wheel removal!!

Have 2001 durango no brake lights no turn signals but have tail lights. checked fuses,relays,bulbs, and replaced multi function switch


Find the fuse that relates to the brake lights and turn signals, then with a vault meter check both sides of the fuse for battery voltage and trace back from there.

Most likely this is a brake light switch issue. Replace switch.

If your emergency flashers don't work, all flasher bulbs are fine, but flashing too fast, then check and replace Hazard light switch.

I need to find the flasher relay for a grand marquis 2001 .does it has one? My turn signals wont work I can hear the sound but don't even flash


Yes, it does have a flasher, although it may be a combined unit with the hazard flashers relay. So you hear the clicking of the flasher relay? That seems to indicate the relay is working properly. Have you checked the bulbs and the turn signal fuse? Any turn signal bulbs light up anywhere, front or back?
How about your brake lights, do they work? Your car may have separate, stand alone turn signals in the rear, but many American cars use the same bulb and same filament on the bulb for the brake lights and turn signals. If your merc is like this and the brake lights work, then the bulb must be good.
Turn on the hazard flashers and see if all bulbs work and flash at each corner of the car. This would be the same bulb as for the turn signals. If they work, it could be a bad turn signal switch, may even be the flasher relay somehow malfunctioning, and in a few cases, a bad hazard switch can affect the turn signal switch. Check fuses and bulbs first. If you have any type of body control module that controls lights and other accessories, you may have to investigate that. I know I'm not being very helpful, just throwing out a few suggestions. Good luck.

I have no brake lights. I checked at the fuse box under the hood and found it OK. Then I went to the foot peddle switch and found the switch OK but when I checked for power going into the switch none could...


Do you have turn signals ok?

Is your rear turn signal bolb the same one used for brakes?

Some turn signals are amber and some are red using the same bulb as the brakes. In that case the brake lights go through the turn signal switch.

But you would have power at the pedal switch.

No relay but there should be a fuse in the dash anel or under the hood if you have a battery box under the hood. Your owner manual will tell you where the fuses are and which one is hte brake. Usually a 15 amp.

I had the same problem with my 2001. I found it was the multi function switch. Better known as your turn signal switch. I found that the hazard switch portion of it had shorted. replacement is fairly easy, aftermarket part is available, much cheaper than GM.
