WHAT YOU DESCRIBED IS MOST OFTEN A INTERNALLY DEFECTIVE BULD. (FILAMENT BROKE) CHANGE THE BULB. the multi-function switch has a internal relay that has gone bad.the multi-function needs to be replaced. that is the turn signal switch itself. I concur with the first answer, first. In other words, replacing the bulbs (even if they seem fine) is easy, cheap and often does the trick. The second answer may be correct if the easy first step doesn't fix the problem.
The correct answer is the Lighting Control Module Under Driverside dash (M.F.S.) as stated above is bad. 650-1000$$$

There are a couple of reasons why the turn signals will not work on a 1998 Ford Explorer. The light bulbs may need replaced or a fuse has blown.
Check to make sure all bulbs are flashing could be a bad turn signal flasher
The 1998 Lincoln Navigator trailer turn signal fuse will be in the fuse box. The trailer turn signal fuse will be one of the auxiliary fuses at the bottom of the second column.
I'll check for a blown fuse(fuse relay box), ground problem, and your bulb.

Most likely its a problem with the turn signal/high beam switch. Its a very common problem with that year. It's an expensive part to replace. could also just be the hazard switch..try giving it a vigourus work out.
The fuse for the abs system is blown. Check under the driver side of dash for the fuse panel.
