Does anyone one know where in the car i would find the place to replace the flasher for the front turn signals..Today i went and bought the part that i was told i needed, the man at the auto parts store said that i would find the place under the hood, I looked but didnt see it so if anyone can tell me where i would find it i would appreciate it
I also have the blinker problem, but have found a temporary solution. I thought that I could press the hazard button numerous times to get the blinkers to work, but was just lucky the few times that I tried. I have actually lodged a piece of paper on the right side of the hazard switch and this has done the trick. The easiest way to replace the hazard switch is to go through the AC vent directly above the radio. There are two clips holding the vents to the dashboard. One is on the top and one is on the bottom directly in the middle. The hardest part is trying to disengage the hazard switch from its holster of sorts. The part should cost about 50-70 dollars and will fix your problem.
This is not the solution, but it may help. I have problems with my turn signals every now and then. Simpley, they just stop working. I can get them to work again by pressing the "hazard" button in and out repeatly. Then try the blinkers and they work again. Why? I guess the flasher unit just get stuck. Lastly, I tried to find this rascal too. I listen for it and it seems to be to the right of the Hazard button. How in the world I'd get in there???? So for now, I'm playing with the Hazard button to make it work.
Hope you're blinking again soon...

The hazard warning switch is part of the turn signal switch. The turn signal switch receives battery voltage at all times through the HAZARD SWITCH Fuse. When the hazard switch is placed in the HAZARD position, battery voltage is applied to the hazard lamp/turn signal lamp flasher. The hazard lamp/turn signal lamp flasher sends a turn signal flasher signal to the turn signal switch. The turn signal switch provides all of the turn lamps and turn indicators with the turn signal flasher signal, simultaneously flashing them on and off.
Turn Signal Lamps
The front turn signal lamps are made up of the front park/turn signal lamps and rear turn signal lamps. The front turn signal lamps flash with the rear turn signal lamps when a turn is initiated using the turn signal/multifunction lever. The turn signals will operate only with the ignition switch in the RUN position and will not operate during hazard flasher operation.
When the ignition is turned to the RUN position, battery voltage is supplied to the TURN SIGNAL Fuse. Battery voltage is then applied through the turn signal fuse circuit to the turn signal switch. When the turn signal switch is placed in the LH or RH position, voltage is supplied to the hazard lamp/turn signal lamp flasher. The hazard lamp/turn signal lamp flasher supplies a turn signal flasher signal to the turn signal switch. With the turn signal switch in the LH or RH position the corresponding turn signal indicator, rear turn signal, and front turn signal receive the turn signal switch signal and will flash. The front turn signals receive the turn signal switch signal from the turn signal switch via the BCM. The turn lamps are permanently grounded.
Replace the turn signal switch. Refer to Multifunction, Turn Signal, and Hazard Switch Replacement - On Vehicle in Steering Wheel and Column - Tilt.
try changing the signal flasher. note the e-flasher looks the same. when you find a flasher turn on the e-flasher so you know you have found the signal flasher. they are usually in the same general area.
There should be a turn signal flasher and a hazard flasher. They are two different parts. If you replaced the hazard flasher and not the turn signal flasher than I would start by replacing the turn signal flasher.
One thing you can do once you find the turn signal flasher is to unplug it and use a jumper wire between the two pins of the connector then turn the key to the run position and place the turn signal lever in the left or right position. If the turn signal lights know light up than the turn signal flasher is the problem
Your F--150 has 2 flashers, emergency and turn signal. Both are mounted on the fuse block under the dash. The turn signal flasher is mounted on the front of the fuse panel, the emergency flasher is mounted on the rear of the fuse panel. so replace the turn signal flasher should solve the problem. Let me know how it goes.
