It's an 03 with a 5.4 V8....I have checked all the fuse in the fuse box.

Thank you for the reply, it could be the flasher, multifunction switch and or fuses and the electronic flasher relay, There is a test that can be done to the system to find the concern, you will need a Volt/OHM meter to do the testing, here is the procedure, hope this helps.
