See related question and solution I have a 96 Grand Marquis and this did not solve my problem. I removed the colored plastic housing around the steering wheel and replaced the turn signal switch (called multi switch or something like that). It controls high beam, turn signal, and wiper switches. It cost only about $25 and did the trick for me. The hazzard switch is also built into this switch system. NAPA auto parts carries this item or the Ford dealer. == Slow down and try it the easy way first and save time and money: Before going to all above cost and trouble, give the WD-40 "solution" a try. My 95 Grand Marquis had no brake lights (except third high-mounted, for some reason), no turn signals, no emergency flasher; but bulbs, fuses, etc. were all OK. I thought it was a bad switch or flasher, but simply squirting some WD-40 around the emergency flasher button on top of the steering column between the steering wheel and the dashboard/instrument panel and pushing the button in and out several times cleared everything up! There are several theories on why it works, but who cares since it is such an accessible, simple and foolproof method. If you don't know what WD-40 is, just Google it! == == ---- The fuse block you are looking for should be behind the knee bolster (the trim panel under the steering column), between the steering column and the emergency brake lever, underneath the dash.

Lay on your back with your legs hanging out of the driver's side door, put your head against the brake pedal, and look up and to the right. ;)

I don't remember right off the top of my head if there are separate flashers for the turn signals and the hazard lights, but they should look almost identical. Round, silver or blue or black, and about the size of a half-dollar.

TIP: If you are replacing the flasher, go with the upgraded electrical flasher (or the heavy duty) rather than the standard one.

It has 2 flasher relays. One for the turn signals and one for the hazard lights. The turn signal flasher is located on the drivers side, under the dash, driver side of steering column, mounted in the fuse panel.

I have a 1996 Grand Marquis. If one of the brake lights goes out the signal on that side flashes faster. I would check the brake/tail lamps.

You have to start by checking the bulbs or the flasher I think it may be the flasher.>>>>>>>>>>>>>
