Customer reply replied 3 years ago
They do not work at all, turn signals and flashers.
Customer reply replied 3 years ago
I checked the fuses and replaced the turn signal switch as recommended by local advanced auto
Ford Mechanic: Mike V., Auto Service Technician replied 3 years ago
Ok thanks.What I would like to have you do is check for power on the following wire at the turn signal switch. Light blue, please check it with the key on.Also, need to have you check for power at the following fuses, not looking to know if they are good or bad, just that they do actually have power when the key is turned on.#'s 2, 13 and 16. I believe the fuses are numbered in the box or on the cover. This is the box inside the truck.Let me know.

Please tell me what positions the volt meter needs to be in.
Ford Mechanic: Mike V., Auto Service Technician replied 3 years ago
You will want it set to 12 volts DC then put the red lead on one side of the fuse and the black on the other. if you have a 12 volt automotive test light, it's quicker, but your meter will work.Let me know.

I do need help with the meter, On the meter I have the red in port ma batt and black in common. What position should I turn the meter to? and what should I get out of the meter as far as a reading?
Ford Mechanic: Mike V., Auto Service Technician replied 3 years ago
You need to turn the meter to 12 volts DC When you place the red lead on one side of the fuse and the black on the other it should show battery voltage with the key on.If you give me the make and model of the meter I might be able to look it up to give you some better assistance with it as well.

I did get voltage at 2 and 13,but it's not that easy with these probes as I can't afford my truck.should I push the all the way in.there standard probes.
Customer reply replied 3 years ago
I can't afford to damage this.
Ford Mechanic: Mike V., Auto Service Technician replied 3 years ago
It's tough using the meter and the probe are the reason. You aren't damaging the truck by doing this.Did you not get any voltage on the other fuse or just not sure you were getting the contact?
Ask Your Own Ford Question
Customer reply replied 3 years ago
Pretty sure I wasn't making contact,should I just go to the auto parts store and get the light?
Ford Mechanic: Mike V., Auto Service Technician replied 3 years ago
I think it will save a lot of grief on your part. Make sure it's got the clamp on one side and the probe on the other.
Ask Your Own Ford Question
Customer reply replied 3 years ago
Ok so I have to put everything back that I took apart so I can go to the auto parts store, how can I connect back with you later.
Customer reply replied 3 years ago
I have to put the steering wheel back too.
Ford Mechanic: Mike V., Auto Service Technician replied 3 years ago
You just reply here, i will be here and we can take it from there. I know it's a pita and I am sorry for that. Electrical is always a pain in the butt. I think you can just take the shroud off to get to the wires we need to test.
Ask Your Own Ford Question
Customer reply replied 3 years ago
This shroud doesn't come off without taking off the steering wheel,And I have to put it back to go to the auto parts store,will I need anything else?
Ford Mechanic: Mike V., Auto Service Technician replied 3 years ago
I do not believe you will, but check and see if you can get a flasher relay for this one. Some you can and some you cannot
Ask Your Own Ford Question
Customer reply replied 3 years ago
I have a tester with an alligator clip on on side and a pointed probe on the other and I also have a flasher relay.where does that go?
Ford Mechanic: Mike V., Auto Service Technician replied 3 years ago
Ok, give me a moment, recheck the fuses and make sure the test light lights up for all of them with the key on.To test, clamp the clamp on a nut or bolt for ground, then probe the window on the back of the fuse. Do both windows one at a time and you should get light. I have to locate a diagram for the flasher while you do this.

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.
