Everything comes through the Turn signal stalk. First, try pushing the Hazard button off and on 6 or more times. The contact points in the Hazard button derail the other contact points in the stalk. Sometimes all that is needed is to clean the contact points and it can be helped by pushing the Hazard button.

The Turn stalk is referred to as a MPS multi position switch and it is $50 to $80. The procedure to check the pin connectors on the MPS is the same as for removal. You take off the cover on the steering column, and you may have to remove the Ignition tumbler if it prevents the plastic cover from coming off. There are 2 female torx screws holding the MPS to the column. Sometimes tightening these 2 screws fixes problems. As this is a sealed case you would think it should not matter, but sometimes it works.

If you are Electrically trained, some of the MPS cases are held together by more female Torx screws. To me its Pandoras box, but you might save your money if you can successfully open and reassemble the contact points. Check your pin connectors and spray them with Electrical cleaner as well as the contact points.

I hope this gives you a direction to go and Thanks for using Fixya.

Turn signal indicators do not work on my 1999 Ford Expedition. Emergency light works fine

I dont mean to sound condescending, but first check fuses... if theyre fine check bulbs... then flasher relays... if all checks fine you have a wiring problem and need to do a complete trace.

My turn signals on my 1988 Jeep Comanche dont work.

My first guess would have been the turn signal switch, which you said you replaced.
You'll have to get a wiring diagram of the switch and start testing wires for power out of the switch. Could be a problem with the main harness going back to the rear of the truck, or a ground for those sockets.

2000 taurus left turn signal flashes rapidly and the left rear turn signal lamp does not work. Does ford have burned out bulb sense circuit that would give this indication? The right side flashes normally.

Yes - the fast flashing is a warning that a bulb is burned out. Change the bulb (be careful to put it in the same as the old one as it probably is 2 bulbs in one , parking and turn/stop) and you should be fine.

My signal turn sometime is not working

When the signal is not working does the indicator in the dash stay lit ( green arrow) ?? if so check all the bulbs..another possibility may be a weak signal flasher . replace the flasher and or burned out bulbs. note.. some bulbs do burn out and work intermittently due to the fillaments contacting now and then due to bumps in the roadway. if these solutions dont work you may need a signal switch in the steering column....good luck

Dont have signal

Click the turn signal switch to either the right or left and get out and check if the BULB comes on but doesn't blink. Try both directions. Does the arrow for that direction also come on, on the dashboard instruments and stays on but not blink? That is a built in indicator that a filament has burned out in one of the bulbs. Try replacing the bulbs. Could also be the fuse for that circuit. Check fuse panel for that circuit. Could also be the turn signal relay. Replace with newer style relay.

Turn Signal is inop

If your turn signal lights are flashing erratically and they sometimes get stuck in the on position when used, this will confirm a flasher malfunction. Now, if the turn signal bulbs don't work or flash when you initiate the flashing sequence, via the switch, this will confirm switch or bulbs failure.

Ii recommend inspecting the bulbs for bad filament or rods. if the bulbs have black or gray smudges on the front part of the glass, you will need to replace the turn signal bulbs in this case.

if the bulbs check out fine, this will point directly to the switch. Just to be sure, do an inspection on the turn signal bulb wiring harness as well. inspect thoroughly for worn or ripped wires.
