Probably a cable or a sensor is burned or cutted... Try to find your car instructions book and check the electronic parts where are they i mean for the signals and if u find it check if all tha cables r connected or if is cutted or melted... If is not in a good shape go to a mechanic and change the electric system

Be sure to check the main ground wire in the rear of the vehicle where the wiring hooks to the tail light assembly.

Would need more info to diagnose then fix. I would check each bulb, then each sovket. See if you ha continuity between contacts at each bulb location, should not when signals are off!

Determine if you have and electric or electronic system. If it's an electronic subassembly, seebit it has an external test procedure, and verify function, check any error codes, repair or replace as needed.

For an electric board, try testing components and replacing non functioning ones.There is usually a capacitor that can be replaced and switches, wiring, possibly relays. A good test is to run a test circuit from the battery and try lighting each light in turn manually to test that they work from that position. Step b9y step, it's not rocket-appliances!

Hazards work but turn signals don't


I'd check your multi-function switch (on your steering column, what you touch to turn your turn signals on). There is a small metal clip on the base of it that tells your car to turn the turn signals on (right or left). Also trace the wires from the mulit-function switch to your turn signal relay and see if you're getting power when the switch is activated.

1992 Ford thunderbird turns over but wont start, fuel pump wont shut off


Sounds like the relay located in the trunk behind the driver side carpet panel is sticking on. Contacts are burnt and causing fuel pump to keep running. Tap relay with a screwdriver handle and if it starts, replace the relay.

1986 Ford Thunderbird. Turn signal does not


Have you checked the contacts to make sure they are touching the bulb base. I have a 1995 Ford Contour that did the same thing. I took a screwdriver and bent the contacts out very slightly and it has worked fine ever since.

1988 ford thunderbird brake lights and turn signals not working


When this happens the problem is most likely the multi-funtion switch aka turn signal switch. Check to see if the 3rd brakelight comes on when the brake pedal is pushed. If so replace the MFS. The 3rd brakelight in late 80's fords bypasses the turnsignal switch.

Location of flasher for turn signal


  1. Access the COMBINATION Turn Signal and Hazard INDICATOR FLASHER on the Left-Hand (drivers) side of the instrument panel in the fuse junction panel.
  1. Remove turn signal flasher/hazard indicator flasher by pulling indicator flasher straight out.
  1. To install, align the terminals of the flasher and press into place.
