Question about 1987 Ford Taurus

1 Answer

The blinkers only work some of the time. All bulbs are good and the emergency flashers work. I found the flasher for the blinkers, but if it is bad, will the blinkers work some of the time and other times not?

You need a signal flasher to correct the problem.flashers will act this way some times when they have an internal problem with the bi-metallic strip that actually completes the circuit and makes the clicking sound.make sure you have found the signal flasher and not the hazard flasher as they look the same.with the hazard flashers on you can see what the signal flasher will look like and it is in the fuse panel.

My 1 turn signal flashes rapidly compared to the other. The rear signal is not working.


The signal flashers fast BECAUSE the rear lamp is not working. Bad bulb? Bad ground? Fix the back lamp and normal speed will be restored.

1970 beetle how to fix flashers


1. Do your emergency flashers work?
Check all your fuses, make sure they are getting a good contact.
If your emergency flashers work, it may be a faulty turn signal switch.
If your emergency flashers work that will eliminate the flasher. The one flasher works both turn and emergency signals.

Flasher repair


First, check your bulbs by starting up the vehicle and turning on the blinkers, then go around to check them. Also check to see if your emergency flasher work.
The fuses are either behind the glove box or under the dash on the driver's side.
Look on fixya, someone had the same problem back in April and several ideas were posted.
Good luck!

No brake lights of blinkers 1990 dodge dynasty


While not likely, it is possible that the light bulbs in both sides are have bad filaments. Turn on ignition key (but don't start engine). Then turn on parking lamps (first detent or "click" on headlamp switch). Walk around car and look for illumination on front parking lamps and rear tail lights. Turn on the right turn signal. Are those (right hand) lamps now changing brilliance? Try the left turn signal in the same manner. Are those (left hand) front and rear lights changing briiliance? Take note of any positions that did NOT change briliance when the turn signals were activated. If NONE changed briliance, you either have a bunch of bad bulbs (unlikely) or a bad flasher (more likely) or a bad turn signal switch (most likely) or perhaps wiring problems (possible if the car has been in a collision or has been "worked on" by some "non-expert" mechanic). Check the action of the emergency flasher control switch located on the steering column (facing up). Pushing it in (down) should result in the button going to two different heights alternately (low, high, low, high). You could just have bad flashers or corroded flasher contacts! Good luck!

Blinkers not working


Did you check the bulbs? If one bulb is burned out, the blinkers won't word on that side. You could have one bulb burned out on each side. Start the car, put left signal on. Check front and back lights. Is one light on but not blinking? If that's the case, the light that's not on at all is burned out and has broken the circuit so the good light stays on and won't blink. Check the other side. You also have a 'flasher' , actually 2. One for emergency flashers, one for the turn signals. It could be that the turn signal flasher is shot. You just have to unplug it to remove. It's probably located near the fuses. good luck countrycurt0
