Turn signals all quit at once!


2 pin flasher. OK, update: I put test light on turn signal flasher (2 hrs reading last night in shop manual shows seperate flashers for haz and turning), probing each of the 2 contacts whilst flasher was connected, turned on left turn stick, and probed: I obtained light on BOTH pins! And no flash/ticking sound. Then, I disconnected the flasher and turn signal lever OFF (no turning) and got light only on the incoming wire from fuse box, of course, indicating power from fuse box OK. So, am I correct in asssumimg the flasher has an open all the time , passssing the voltage through to the outgoing wire without the tick tick noise being activated?

Isnt it a good sign at least for the turn signal switch being good? Sheesh, thats the last thing I want to be busted........

Yes, so far, it does sound like the turn signal is working. Here's what I would do now...

If you can get to the emergency flasher, see if you get the same results on that flasher. You will use the emergency flasher button, rather than the turn signal, obviously, but this should tell you that you're reading it correctly.

After that, I would replace the turn signal flasher.

If, for some reason, that does not fix it, as I mentioned earlier, I would remove each bulb, one by one, and match it against the listing in the owner's manual or shop manual, just to make sure that none of them have an incorrect one.

It honestly sounds though like a flasher will take care of it.

Well, good luck. I'll check back later to see how you made out, but right now I have to get going, as I have some Christmas joy to share with some less fortunate families in the area this afternoon.

Good that we have members here who give time/joy to the less fortunate.

Meanwhile, I went to the store to buy some vegetables. During the trip, figures- turn signals now work! But I noticed that while they blink, they blink in an uneven fashion, AND with no clicking sound. I also believe bulbs are correct/spec, as in the recent past, I did not have this problem, and I am the original owner, and no one else messed with my car (not saying I can not make a mistake, though).

I may do more testing like you said, Dex, with swapping the haz flasher later on. Meanwhile, I have to install mu civic comp, as its ready to be dropped in!!

NQ, all I know about Ford turn signal switches is that they had a gazillion of them made differently and it has to be exact match or bust.
