I have a 97 ford f150, the other day my turn signals stop working flashers still worked just turn signals stopped. I opened the steering column and found two burnt wires on the turn signal harness, fuses were fine under the dash. I then replaced the harness and replaced multifunction control. While working under the dash turn signals worked for a short period then stopped. I then replaced both relay switches under the dash one blue one black still no turn signals fuses were still fine, I am lost any other relays or switches I don"t no about. HELP.
Do you
have the same problem?

Well I started checking wires and refitted my switch and the turn singals came on, moved the column they when't off the switch on top pulls out slighty I will try something to make it snug the clip on top is broke. And as far as the wires go I did not check the ones on top just the side.

No problem on the time, so you've discovered the issue(connection) with the turn signals? I hope that the wiring diagram helped, I didnt understand the last part of your message, did you have another issue with the wires?

Hey there sorry about the delay, I thought you discovered the issue with the harness, if not what wires/or whats the new problem. If you can get the blinkers to fail and work by tugging the harness then cant you pinpoint the problem.
