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.

What causes 94 f-150 directional blinkers to blink real fast when hooking up a utility trailer?

There is a short in the system somehwere. If they blink normally without the trailor, check the trailor lights, sockets or wiring. If they blick fast all of the time, one of your bulbs is burnt out - change it and they will blink at normal speed. Everything is fine without the trailer, the trailer is new(does not mean much) but just found that my hazard system works fine with the trailer, which leads me to directional flasher could be bad. Will check and post... There are two flasher cans, I had changed out the emergency flasher thinking it was the directional, changed out defective directional flasher and all is well. Thanks againl
