Why would your turn signals and flashers fail on a Taurus or Sable?
The three most likely causes seem to be the following:
Here are some suggestions from our community on how to resolve the problem:
- Flasher unit
- Turn signal switch on the steering column
Here are some suggestions from our community on how to resolve the problem:
- I had a similar problem. The fix is actually pretty easy. The car is almost 20 years old, has 200,000 miles on it. The connector for the lighting portion of the multi-function switch, is on the top of the TILT steering column. Every time you tilt the wheel down, you pull on this connector. The connector has two locking clips that hold it in place. After time, the connector becomes brittle, and the locking clips break off. That seems to be what happened to my friend's car, that she just purchased. The paint is pretty badly oxidized, which tells me the car was left in the sun a lot, which will speed up the aging of the plastic. One thing that might tip you off, is if you raise the wheel, the lights might start to work again. This is how I fixed it: Remove the battery cable, or you may drain the battery! Under the steering column, there are three Phillips head screws. Remove these, lower the steering column, and remove the tilt lever, Chilton's says you may need a small wrench to remove that lever. Remove the lower portion of the steering column cowl. Insert the ignition key, and turn to the running position. Since you have disconnected the battery cable, the car should not turn over. When you look at the bottom of the steering column, under the lock cylinder, you will see a round spot with a smaller circle in the middle. Use a small screwdriver or awl to depress the center spot. You should now be able to pull the lock cylinder out, and remove the top of the steering column cowl. On the very top of the steering column, you will see the connector to the multi-function switch. If the locking clips are broken, as they probably will be, as your car is now 20 years old, you have a problem. Pretty easy to fix. If you look carefully at the connector, you will notice there are two groups of wires, one on each side, with no wires in the middle of the connector. Pull the connector up, and get yourself some slack! Make certain that the steering column is at its lowest position, and that when you plug the connector in, it is not being pulled on. Then using a small drill, maybe 1/8 inch, carefully drill right next to the little nub that USED to hold the locking clip. Then put a 1" screw into the hole. That should hold it! Now reassemble the steering column. Watch for the "key in ignition sensor contact. The clip that holds that in place is very small. Mine was also broken. I put a little bit of silicone adhesive on it, pressed it back into place, and wrapped two wraps of electrician's tape around it, making sure that the tape was stuck onto itself. I know, this all sounds so tacky! But the car is 20 years old. You are going to need to get creative to keep it running!
- Many vehicles have the hazard switch as a push-on push-off in
the top center of the steering column. This is a good place to
spray your WD-40 or similar cleaner as the contacts for this switch
are often the problem, and being on the top side gravity will help
the cleaner flow into the contact areas. Be careful if you use
another product to be certain it doesn't contain alcohol or other
solvent that can attack plastic. Such solvents introduced into any
plastic switch component can destroy it rather than improve the
- This works! I lost my turn signals and flashers this past
weekend and stumbled on this WD40 solution. I have a 96 Taurus. I
removed the steering column covers and sprayed in the switch and
the hazard button area. I waited several minutes and tried but no
luck. I reapplied until the WD40 was dripping quickly from the
bottom of the switch. A real soaking. Then I agitated the turn
switch for left and right and pushed the hazard button quickly up
and down. Suddenly everything clicked in and worked. My guess is
dirt and build up on the contacts is removed with the WD40. I also
notice that my windshield wiper fluid now works with a slight
touch. Previously I had to really push and push at it several times
until a shot of wiper fluid would come out. This is a great
solution! A new switch is about $120 and a flasher relay about $60.
- It may be your flasher, usually a round metal thing under the dash. check the bulbs If all four directional lights do not work, first check fuse, if fuse is good, your flasher is bad. If both your left and right turn signals (dash indicators & front/read lamps) do not come on, check Fuse, Flasher unit is good and plugged in and most importantly, the Hazard Flasher Switch (on some cars) may be unplugged or bad. If your turn signals and flashers don't work it could be your turn signal switch. The flasher lights and the blinkers both went out on my 97 Taurus. After checking the fuses (separate) and bulbs I looked online. I had found others saying that if your door ajar light and your inside light stays on to spray wd40 in the locks and the latch mechanism. Well I had this problem also so I tried it, and after years of not having an inside light this worked. I had previously removed the interior lamp relay because it wouldn't go out. I went back to address my original concern (blinkers and flashers) and I found that the most likely problem would be with the multi-function switch. While trying to get to the multi function switch in the steering column, I couldn't get the tilt steering lever off. I was getting very aggravated so I just sprayed the crap out of it wd40 (I had it there anyway) All I can say is that when they first started working they were intermittent and then fast flashing. I sprayed more wd40 and now the blinkers and the flashers work. Go figure.
- My symptoms were very similar: the windshield washer fluid was hard to activate at first, then would not spray at all so I had the pump and electrical looked at but only a temporary fix, also the right turn signal was intermittent or double speed for a while and for 24 hours didn't work at all and then came back, and just today in very cold weather both turn signals and the hazards failed to turn on at all. Until I read this answer I hadn't put it all together, but when I sprayed the WD40 until dripping in the hazard button on top of the steering column and also into the base of the multifunction switch and into the joint between the windshield washer button at the end of the switch, working everything around vigorously and then letting it sit for 30 minutes, suddenly everything started working again. Turn signals, flashers, windshield fluid. Thanks everyone for this cheap and easy fix!
- I have a 2004 Chevrolet Classic. The turn signals would not
work - no lights on dash or even the clicking sound (from the
flasher). All bulbs checked out O.K. The hazard lights worked fine.
I replaced the multi-switch. Still did not work. I was ready to
take to to the dealer to have them trace the wiring. As a last
resort, I tried the WD-40 solution on the flasher switch - IT
WORKED!!!! I was amazed. Fix Both Flashers with WD40 Squirt! WD40!
- Chances are the "multifunction switch" under the steering wheel
has stuck open. Squirt WD40 generously under the Hazard warning
light switch behind the steering wheel. Operate the switch on and
off about a dozen times, then operate the turn-signal switch left
and right about a dozen times. Add some more WD40 and let it sit a
few minutes. Try again. It should begin to work. If not, replace
the flasher for $10 at your local auto parts store ($40-50 at the
Ford parts department). It's a blue plastic cube close under the
dash to the left of the steering wheel. Just remove it from its
bracket and push the new one in place. Voila, Viola!
- You have probably figured it out by now, but it could be your multi-function switch located at the base of the turn signal, wiper, etc, stalk (lever). Also controls hazard lights. Not that hard to replace if necessary. Check out old switch with an olms meter. A Haynes guide book can help you. A new switch should cost less than $100. Just had the exact same problem on my 96 Crown Vic, plus I could flash the high beams, but not leave them on. Took off the turn signal stalk, opened it up at the base and all the copper contacts were corroded (by lube Ford uses at factory?) Cleaned them, and everything now works fine! Cost- zero!
- For all these posts, whenever they mention WD40 being applied for electronics, while it may be ok to use WD40, you are probably safer using a lubricant made especially for electronic components. There are some plastics that WD40 is not good for and it can be overkill for places with electronic components and plastics in the same place. That said, I use a spray can lubricant I found in home depot called CRC Electrical Grade 2-26. I found it in the electrical department (house wiring etc). Just look for the one that says its safe for plastics and is made especially for electrical connections. I think it does the same thing as WD40 but without some of the corrosive effect on certain plastics. It also doesn't smell. I promise I do not own any stock in this company nor do I have a problem with WD40, I use it all the time for other applications.
- Check that all parking and brake lights are working. Bad bulbs won't flash. Other possibles - blown fuse. flasher relay bad. switch kit inside steering column broke.
- Your relay could be bad they are located underneath your dash on the driver side.
- There is a device called a 'flasher' which is what actually makes the lights blink. It is usually in a very difficult place to locate, sometimes under the dashboard, sometimes in the engine compartment. If you own a car, it is worthwhile to purchase a maintenance manual for it. These can be found at most part stores, and run about 20 dollars. In it, you should find the exact location of the turn signal flasher unit.
- Have it checked out. It could be the t/s switch Hazard (emergency) relay might need replacing. Our 97 sable has a problem with the emergency flasher switch on top of the steering column that also keeps the turn signals from flashing. Just pushing the button on and off many times has fixed it(temporarily and cheaply) twice over the last 5 years or so.
- This happened to my '98 Mercury Sable. I had to replace the "Turn Signal Wiper Lever Switch." The part was about $75 and you can find it at some local auto parts stores (I got mine at a local NAPA). It took a bit of work to replace it, but it's not too hard.
- I have the same problem in my 95 Ford Taurus. Checked the fuses and they were all okay. Next step was to find the flasher but after checking this problem out online, this is what I found. Most likely the problem is the multi-function switch. In the 95, it is located in the steering column. From others that have had this problem, I found you might get the switch working again by dismantling the switch and cleaning the contacts. You can also find one in a junkyard to replace the broken one but you'll have to remove it yourself to save any money.
- Most likely it is your turn signal flasher,and it should be located close by the fuse panel. It will be round and looks like a short battery and it may be plastic or metal.
- Check the flasher for your emergency flasher.There are two flasher units, one for turn and one for emergencies.
- Most likely a bad turn signal flasher Could also be a bad switch in the steering column.
- I would think the first thing to check would be the fuses. Your owners' manual should provide a fuse diagram, there is likely to be one on the fuse box cover.
- Check for bad flasher (usually under dash) and also check for bad fuse in fuse block.
- I took a suggestion from one of our farmers, I sprayed WD 40 on top and around the flasher which is located on top of the steering wheel column. I checked the flasher the next day and it worked beautifully.
- Usually I just replace the multi-function switch, assuming it isn't a bad bulb. A bad bulb would be too obvious, though.

Thanks for the feedback!
Why would the left turn signal on a 2002 Mercury Sable blink at double speed and the rear flasher be out?
Answer This is a common built in feature that is used to tell the vehicle driver that one of the turn signal bulbs is out.
Where is the hazard turn signal flasher unit located and how do you change it on a 1986-1995 Taurus Sable?
Flasher Location It's located on top off the fuse panel under the dash on the driver side. Turn signal/ flasher relay is behind left end of instrument panel… above the fuse box Might not be your flasher I was asking this same question about my 95 Ford Taurus. If your problem is your signal and hazard lights not working and you've checked your fuses, the next logical step would be to find the flasher. On looking up this question myself I found that the problem usually wasn't the flasher but the multifunction switch located on the steering column. The best answer I found so far was to spray some WD40 under the hazard warning light switch behind the steering wheel. Operate the switch on and off about a dozen times, then operate the turn-signal switch left and right about a dozen times. Add some more WD40 and let it sit a few minutes. Try again. It should begin to work. One location of the flasher was under the dash to the left of the steering wheel. It was described as a blue plastic cube. Don't know if yours looks like that or not. Hope this helped at least a little. Answer If it is like my 98 Grand Marquis, it is incorporated within the hazard flasher switch on top of the steering column. Before spending money to get it repaired, try squirting some WD 40 around the switch and push it down and let it pop up several times and wiggle it around. It worked for me when my flashers, turn signals, and brake lights stop working. Apparently, over the years gunk finds it way in there, be it dirt, liquids, etc. Pressing the flasher switch can sometimes initiate the problem. I don't believe there is a plug-in "flasher" you can replace as you may remember in older vehicles.

Turn signal - #6 See "Related Questions" below for more about turn signals, flasher & fuse boxes There is no turn signal relay on this vehicle. The power goes from the turn signal switch to an electronic flasher located in the upper left side of the instrument panel. From there it goes to the bulbs. Rick the fuse is gonna be a round fuse(about the size of a quarter and about half inch thick) and most generally located on or around the fuse panel under the dash of ur car and there pretty cheap to replace
What does it look like and where's it mounted The flasher/turn signal is screwed into the metal support above the fuse panel, you must take the bottom of the dash off and remo…ve the plastic cover. this is for a sable that has light out detection. Look under your dash for a blue box screwed into the right side of the dash panel. This of course is done, with you laying on your back, and your feet in the back seat. It's a blue box, about the size of half a twinkie (cream filled, golden sponge cake). Remove the plug that holds it in, unscrew the screw that holds it to the frame, and go to Autozone or other parts store, to get a new relay. You will have to reuse the metal piece that holds the relay to the dash panel, so be sure and save that before you throw the old part away. Installation is the reverse. First Squirt easing oil, No Kidding! Don't even try until you lubricate the "multifunction switch" behind the steering wheel, which usually causes this problem. Squirt easing oil into the hole where the Hazard switch sits. Be generous. Operate the switch repeatedly. Operate the turn-signal switch repeatedly. Add more easing oil if needed. If that doesn't work, get a replacement flasher from your local auto parts store for about $10 (or pay $40-50 at the Ford parts window). Look up under the dash to the left of the steering wheel for a blue plastic cube. Remove that and plug the replacement in. The easing oil trick worked for me! No kidding. It worked like a charm. I highly suggest trying it before you do anything else. easing oil also fixed my dome light switches. My Dome lights wouldn't turn off but after saturating the door latches on each door, the switches started working again. Fixing a Flasher on a 1996 Ford Taurus The flasher (a single one for both turn signals and the hazard lights) is close under the dash left of the steering column. Original equipment is a blue plastic square that fits into a three-pole receptacle served by black, blue, and red-white wires. But don't rush to replace it yet. First, do what my friend learned to do from WikiAnswers -- squirt easing oil down around the Hazard switch button behind the steering wheel, where the "multi-function switch" is located. Be generous with the lubricant. Soak the switch good. Work the hazard switch on and off a dozen times. Then work the turn signal switch right and left a dozen times. If nothing improves, let it sit a few minutes, then try the flashers again. Add more easing oil. If you have to give up on easing oil, check the fuses for the hazard and the turn signals lights (separate fuses). If they're good, remove the flasher and replace it ($10 at your friendly universal after-market parts store, ($40-50 at your local Ford dealer). Save the receipt so you can return the flasher for a refund, as my friend did after easing oil did the trick. Testimonial Holy Cow! I just happened to be stuck with my wife's Grandfather's 96 Taurus today and the turn signals and flashers didn't work. I followed the overly simple procedure in the preceding two paragraphs and it worked like a charm. Suhweeet! The manual I have says the flasher assembly is under the drivers side of the instrument panel and it is held in by one retaining screw. It shows a small square unit with three blades which plug into a connector on the end of wire. It appears to be screwed into an under dash brace member which supports the instrument panel. My flasher is failing intermittently. I haven't gotten around to replacing it yet, so I can't guarantee this description is accurate. I hope this information helps. Indicator flasher assy 13550. This is an electronic combination turn signal and emergency warning flasher. It is attached on the left hand side of the instrument panel reinforcement above the fuse panel. The main wiring harness is assy 14401. It could be the flasher, another fuse, the turn signal switch or an electrical connector. You will need to get a schematic for the turn signal system then track back to where you get power. Follow the line to the point where you no longer get power they you will have found the source of the problem. The Flasher Relay is located behind the left side of the instrument panel. There is no flasher on the 98 Sable, it has a LCM (Lighting Control Module) Dealer only item unless you wanna take a chance at the junk yard. there is a light blue flasher relay under the steering wheel check and replace or check the fuse box in the same place Answer The flasher/turn signal is screwed into the metal support above the fuse panel, you must take the bottom of the dash off and remove the plastic cover. this is for a sable that has light out detection. Any questions, contact firstname.lastname@example.org I know for Real. Look under your dash. Look for a Blue Box screwed into the right side of the dash panel. This of course is done, with you laying on your back, and your feet in the back seat. It sucks to get to, but it's the easiest to access once your under there. It's a blue box, about the size of half a twinkie. Remove the plug that holds it in, unscrew the screw that holds it to the frame, and go to Autozone to get a new relay. You will have to reuse the metal piece that holds the relay to the dash panel, so be sure and save that before you throw the old part away. Installation is the reverse. Answer Be sure to read through the Related Question below on the Taurus - great tips & info that equally applies to the Sable. Answer Flasher relay is located, behind left side of instrument panel. Best way to do it The Flasher sensor looks like a little aluminum can, and is located under the dash (provided they didn't include a dash cover) otherwise you'd have to unscrew it first from all it's mounting screws. The can is mounted on the steering column up a ways, (best way to see is to put your head up there, while your feet rest in the backseat, it's uncomfortable but it works. You'll see two cans, left/right, turn your key to the "on" position, and use the turn signals, and feel each can for a clicking feel/sound. Don't replace that one, unless you don't have turn signals either. Henceforth the other one is the Hazard/Flasher sensor. Pull out the wire clip (it's easier if you slide the can out of it's holding clip, pop in a new one, and get upright before you pass out. Answer Check all of the fuses. If they are good change the flasher which is in the fuse box on some cars. Answer The flasher on most cars is located around the fuse box under the dash, or attached to the underside of the dash. It is a small round cylindrical Can made of aluminum, or plastic. If your turn signal flashers stopped working, play with the emergency flasher button on top of the steering column. Our 97 Sable turn signals quit once and luckily I pushed the emergency flasher button in and out many times and the signals have worked ever since. But the emergency flashers don't work, but I can live with that. The turn signal flasher relay is located behind the left hand side of the instrument panel at the left hand side of the steering column. IT'S USUALLY ON THE FUSE BLOCK UNDER THE DASH ON THE DRIVER'S SIDE. IT OFTEN LOOKS LIKE AN ALUMINUM CYLINDER(SILVER) AN SIMPLY PLUGS IN. Answer it is truly under the driver-side of the dashboard, but near the outer edge. it is truly a blue cube(original) and held in place with one 7mm screw into a built-in clip. it is left of the code-checking jack and the screw head faces down. once the screw is removed, the cube and harness drop down. there is no retaining clip-thank God-just carefully pry the three-prong cube away from the harness. now, my replacement cube didnt have a place on it for the clip, but the clip can be glued onto the new cube. or, ty-wrap the works in place....But,,, I did find that another's response was correct!!! i didnt need to change my flasher-the hazard switch WAS truly gummed-up!! i used a few drops of alchohol-not wd40 (that scares the electrician in me)-exercised the hazard and turnsignals feverishly and they began working miraculously! and , i appreciated other info on changing those pesky front turn signal lamps! it IS an easy job of removing the three bolts of the headlamp,removing the headlamp to get to the harness of the turn signal and voila!!! I'll even add that my signal lense was full of water, but nothing that a couple of well-placed weep holes didnt fix!! happy motoring!!! I can;t believe it but the oil works. It worked in 10 seconds. Thanks for the quick fix!! Answer The flasher relay is located behind left side of instrument panel. Purchase the Relay and you will know what you are looking for.
Answer It might be your clockspring. (actually most likely it is your clockspring) try turning the turn signals on and turning the wheel from left to right …all the way and then back again. you should hear a click noise in the steering wheel and the turn sigals should stop blinking if not your tab or something is not right on the clockspring. this requires removing the steering wheel and some special tools as there is a spring in your steering column. good luck Answer The multifunction switch is bad. This is the switch that controls the trun signals, wipers, and cruise control. Answer It is a multifunction switch Problem. This is the switch that controls the trun signals, wipers, and cruise control. The assembly is easy to change if you have any skills.... Took me only 50mins and my dealer wanted to charge an 1hr and 1/2
Most likely it is the signal/hazard flasher. Where it is located is something I am looking for I recently replaced my turn signal/flasher on my 99 cougar. If you re…move the lower part of the steering column and behind the turn signal you will see a black box type fuse. This is the flasher. Just unplug and plug in new flasher. 4 cylinder clld for a 3 prong flasher. I saved over $100 in not having to replace the whole turn signal stick or switch. Check this part first!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Overheating flasher/relayThe generic answer is "it depends" . Without more specific info on the flasher (IE make, model, and year vehicle it is fitted to, and/or type of flash…er IE thermal/mechanical or electronic/solidstate)all I can offer is general "blackbox" diagnosis techniques. That is a method of examining the inputs and outputs of a device to determine if it is functioning properly without regard to what is inside "the box". Please verify that the CORRECT flasher/relay for the vehicle in question is in fact fitted. The wrong one could cause what you are describing with nothing else actually wrong. Substitute a known good flasher/relay of the correct type for the overheating one and see if the problem goes away. If the flasher/relay is at fault there will be no further sign of the problem, but if it does not then vehicle electrical system is causing the problem. Unplug and/or substitute a known good hazard switch for the one in the vehicle (the turnsignal power lines usually go thru the hazzard switch) and see if the overheat stops. Does the vehicle have a tow package electrical adapter (like U-haul) installed? These contain diodes inside that can short and cause low level load related problems. Check the ground connections between the battery and vehicle body. Do this with a voltmeter, there should be less than 0.10v voltage drop across any ground (one probe on the battery post and the other on the body where the cable attaches) with a load on the cable (meaning with power flowing thru it). I have seen a bad ground cause a power feedback thru unexpected pathways as the electicity tries to get back to the (badly grounded) battery post using the engine block ground cable. With the preceeding in mind... Do the turnsignals have to be used befor it heats up or will it heat up just from turning on the key? Do the turn signals/parking lights ALL work properly? By that I mean do they come on only when they should, and go off only when they should? If some lights are coming on when they should not, and any bulbs were recently replaced, check to make sure the correct replacement bulb was fitted. I have seen unusual operation when a single filament bulb was fitted to a dual filament socket (yes, it will fit, and the single filament bulb-contact bridges the dual filament contacts in the socket creating a "short" between turnsignal and tail light circuits). Finally, with the electrical system in the problem mode (IE turned on, etc as needed to create the overheat condition) but the turnsignals (and hazard switch) turned off, disconnect or pull the flasher/relay out of it's socket and watch for the flash of a spark. You may need to use a darkened environment such as a garage with the door down or outside at night to see the flash. If you DO see a flash from a spark then there is a definite load on the flasher/relay when there should not be. Try to see if any lights or other loads go out when the relay/flasher is unplugged and if you do see something change that may be the issue or related to the issue at cause. Good luck.
On 2000 Ford Taurus - does the same flasher relay operate the turn signals and the 4 way emergency flashers?
Yes. See "Related Questions" below for more on Taurus/Sable flashers, and a fix for common problems.
Answer Hey, If all fuses are ok, then it must be the electronic flasher that located under the dash. Its look like a relay but little longer than rel…ay and had 9 pins. The parts you can buy online (I bought it and paid 42 dollars including shipping). There is a part number written over it (if you take it out, you will see). I forgot something like 4*****. This flasher is not available any local store as I checked when I had the same problem. I searched on google with the part number and found one website selling it and bought it from there, and received it within 3 days. The circuit diagram that I used later on (as puting that flasher still my signal didn't work only the emergency flasher was working.. so my previous flasher was ok as I had problem only with turn signals...(in your case you might be ok if you just change the flasher...if not..you can manually mutilate your turn signal function adding the following circuit that I had used to resolved the issue, instead of changing the whole BCM, which is expensive.)I am asuming you have enough electrical circuit knowledge although it requires the minimum knowledge to operate a volt meter to pick the right wire. If the circuit works, leave me an email as I will be happy to know that my knowledge helped you in some way.

%DETAILS% replace the mutifunction switch I have a '98 C1500, and it does the same thing. Diagnosis: Multi Function switch. What I want to add: Your …vehicle, like mine, has an air bag. Unless you know the proper procedures involved in working around them, do yourself a favor and take it to a shop. It is not worth the risk to save a few bucks. This is at most a 2 hour repair, $60-$120 labor, plus the part. My $.02. I have the same problem with my 98 Blazer yes it does seem to be the MF switch (Multi- Function) and yes better off to have a shop do it for you.
Because the hazard/turn signal relay has failed. A defective/intermittent turn signal switch can also cause this symptom.
In Asian Cars
In Subaru Car. Make clicking noises when work.
In GMC Jimmy
What would cause turn signal flasher to keep clicking even if no turn signal is not turned on. on a 99 gmc jimmy?
The cause for a turn signal flasher to keep clicking on a 1999 GMC Jimmy is a bad flasher unit. Replacing this with a new flasher unit should solve this problem.
Replacement flashers are known to be lighter weight than the original. Installing a heavy duty flasher should solve the problem.
More than likely you car has 2 flasher relays. One for the turn signals and one for the hazard lights. Replace the turn signal flasher relay. My 2000 Dodge Ram 1500 only has …1 relay for both turn signal & hazard, but inside the relay are 2 sets of contacts, one for each circuit, the turn signal contacts were burnt, but hazard were ok. still change the relay as your first fix, alot cheaper then a new switch.
