Question about 1998 Ford Taurus

Ford Taurus Signal light failure

1998 Ford Taurus signal lights will not work. Left, right, front or back fail to work. They simply stop working overnight. I checked the fuse and even replaced it with a new one but neither turn light will work. I also noticed the emergency flashers don't work. All of these stop working at the same time. Again, the fuse for the fasher was fine, but again failed to flash.

My manuel indicates that both signal light and emergency flashers operate something call the multi-funcition switch. Could this be the problem, if so where is it and how do I fix it?

Or can you recomment another solution.

Thanks.

    i'm having the same problem with my signal lights and flashers, also my lights to the radio and time go off and on when they want. but now my main problem is that my car runs great but when i stop at a red light or stop to pay the toll, when i take off the rpms rev but my car barely moves and my speedometer dropes to zero.

All signals and other flashers work but passenger front flashers do not work


Use a test light, test for power and ground at the bulb contacts. Then test for power and ground at the wires. Probably needs a new socket, common problem.

TURN SIGNALS


Hi

Did you check the fuses for the turn lights? Do the
parking lights work? If the parking lights work then you probably have a
problem either in the switch or in turn signal module thing.
The burned out bulb is what might be causing it not to blink... if one bulb is burned out you gotta replace it, make no difference if front or back,the left blinker will not work if the left front or rear bulb is bad.
same with the right side. if the front right or rear right turn signal
light is burned out it will not work.....get replacing the bulbs.Hope this solves your problem.Please rate me if my solution helped you.

Signal lights in front won't work


As someone who has had fun with a right rear light panel on a toyota corolla I can sympathize. I went in to the shop and the guy replaced 3 bulbs on mine. Did yo fix the left signal light yet?

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.

96 Ford Taurus no turn signals or hazards


Take the turn signal lever and jiggle it, a lot. If they start working, the switch is bad. You can also turn on the hazards and take hold of the button and push it left , right , forward and back and see if they start working. If so, replace the turn signal/ hazard switch.
