Hi. My name is Robert Cole and I have owned many ford vans. I have a 95 that al of a sudden lost it's directional signals. I have another van.A 96 that is fine and we have obviously first checked all fuses and relays including those under the master cylinder as well as those under the steering column.

We have working 4 ways and we have also confirmed the mutli function switch to be operational because we swapped this out from the other vehicle and still no turn signals. We purchased a hayes manual and it was a waste of money because it does not give us a fuse diagram. We have no manuals. Since both were bought used and here in s.E. Ohio we have little resource with knowledgable people. Everyone we talk to seems bewildered.

we need the van because it is our work horse and wondered if you had any ideas.
Do you

Hi Robert ... thanks for the donation

Have you tried swapping the relay on the left side of instrument panel with the one from the other van..?

Yes we also swapped out the relay. And everything still is the same. The connector part of the wiring harness that clips onto the mutifunction switch had a bit of mild heat damage. Along three of the terminals. Yet I believe one of them is part of the 4 way/hazard. And they still work fine. The connector part of the wiring assembly is one unit yet devided into two sections. We unplugged the part to the signals/hazards and we still had the washers working, so we knew the unplugged section went to the turn signals. Could there be something to the hazard button that would cause the signals not to work? Have there been problems with this connection with others. My gut feeling is that it must be linked to something in the column. Thanks rcc

The hazards have there own fuse .. hot all times .. purple/orange from fuse#1....light green/red wire is hot in run from fuse #5 to multifunction and through to flasher relay ..light blue wire @ multifunction switch is live feed from relay to turn signals .. so there must be a break in the light blue wire from relay to switch ...
