Why would the blinkers on a 1996 Mustang not work if the flashers do and the bulbs are good?

It has 2 different flashers. One for the turn signals and one for the emergency flashers.

I believe the flashers are on a separate fuse than the blinkers, that is where I would first start to look, is the fuse box

Check two things: 1) the fuse for your flashers/blinkers and 2) that the bulbs are good still.

bad fuse or there is a short in 1 of the wires under your dash

it may have nothing to do with your brake pads on my car the blinkers stoped working they still came on but they stoped blinking and i just had to repace the bulbs

You have two separate relays for 4 ways and blinkers. I would say that the turn signal relay needs replaced. It is usally a round silver relay either on the fuse panel or under dash. Go to the parts store tell them the year and make they will give you the right relay and can probably tel you where to look.

most people do not think to check the polarity when changing the blinkers, try rotating the flasher bulbs that you changed, do one at a time until you see a difference in speed from the flashers. ---------------- Also check that ALL of the flashers are working - including the "side markers" on the front side AND the parking light bulbs in the very front. ALL of these have to be working for the lights to flash at the proper speed. I would also check the "brightness" of the bulbs between the two sides. If one side looks dim, then that would point to a wiring issue. Good Luck, Greg

I just had the same problem with my 95 intrepid and it was the sending unit that needed to be replaced.

Check your fuses if it is not your fuses i would say check your hazard switch, mine went bad on my Nissan and caused that problem

User Avatar

try the turn signal switch, the connector on it, the connections to the signal lights, the wiring, etc. On some vehicles, the turn signal switch controls front and back blinkers separately

in mark 8's they use a controler to make flashers flash. this module has gone bad

The bulb is bad. Turn signals and flashers use different bulbs.

User Avatar

Most likely, it's going to be because the actual switch on the column is bad. If neither were working I would say it's the relay, but since the flashers still work, I'm going to say it's the switch itself.

First, check all fuses. Then see if you are getting power to the bulbs. Then the next possibility would be the turn signal switch.

Blown bulbs not pulling enough current to cause flashers to operate. Check your bulbs...

turn signals and emerg flashers work off a flasher can. go to any auto store and buy a new one they are cheap and easy to replace

User Avatar

It sounds like you have a bad ground on one of your signals or a short . Check your grounding wires on all blinkers .

User Avatar

Try replacing the hazard flasher. If that does not work, double-check to see that you have the proper bulbs and fuses installed for the brake lamp circuit.

Did you recently switch to LEDs or another high intensity type replacement bulbs ? These WILL NOT WORK without modification to the circuit.

Make sure ALL of the bulbs are working. If one or more bulb has failed, the flashers stop so that you'll be forced to check them out. If it's not a bulb, it could be the turn signal switch.
