Question about 1996 Lincoln Town Car
On a 96 TC after I tested the emergency flashers(they didn't work) I discovered that the turn signals and the brake lights do not work. The window brake light does work. No indication of turn signal working except the side marker lighs do come on . Any ideas
I had this same problem on a 1995 Lincoln Towncar -- thought I might have to replace the Signal Switch - then it was suggested to check the ground for this wiring. However I was told to check the HAZARD SWITCH. The Hazard Switch was not On or Off it was stuck in the middle. Simply pushing it up and down correct the problem. I was also told that maybe a little WD40 on the HAZARD SWITCH might help.
This is an easy try me first fix. It worked for me and cost 0.

I have to admit, I had my doubts about this fix. I have been having the same problem with my 96 LTC, and went out and sprayed some WD40 around the hazard button. I then finessed the button a bit, trying to work the fluid into the mechanics. It didn't work right away, and I parked my car to run into a meeting. I came out about 30 minutes later, and my hazards were on, and my blinkers worked!

Worked like a charm! My Dad thought He was going to spend $400 or more on replacing a turn signal module. Thanks!

I think your solution is right on. After further investigating my problem, I found that after pressing the hazard flasher switch several times, sometimes my turn signals would work sometimes they would not. I fixed my problem by replacing the multifunction (HF, TS, wiper) switch, but I think your solution might have worked and saved me dollars.
