Expedition xl,4.6 L,2X: Ron,I'm Chris and I have 2 problems

Customer Question

Hi Ron,I'm Chris and I have 2 problems 1) turn signals don't work and signal dash lights don't even light up solid/no flash but the hazard lights are as strong as ever also I was checking the turn signals at night and they wouldn't work or come on until I started to play with the turn signal/low to hi-beam lever and after a lot of tries the turn signals came on for 2 or 3 clicks then stopped ....

Hello and thanks for choosing just answer. Since playing with the high beams will make the turn signals work for a short time. Your turn signal switch has most likely failed. You try moving the steering wheel tilt to the highest position and see if it works. If this works then the wires have pulled out of the back of the connector. Replacing the turn signal switch should fix your concern.
