Customer Question
No front turn signals...

No front turn signals! i have checked all fuses and relays. I have removed both front headlights and there is no power going to the turn signals. all other signals are working. please help

Mechanic's Assistant: Is the power loss consistent, or does it fluctuate?

No i haven't had front turn signals for approx 2 months

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Ford?

2012 f150 king ranch with ecoboost

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your F150 yourself? What have you tried so far?

Replaced bulbs, checked all fuses, replaced relay's, removed headlights and checked for power going into turn signal- no power. not sure where else to go from here

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Thats all for now

Hello my name is ***** ***** welcome to just answers! I will be assisting you with all of your vehicle questions today. Give me one moment while I review your question and come back with a answer. Please be aware I do not know your skill level or abilities so I will be asking a lot of questions and in a lot of cases we will respond to each other quite a lot before we find a solution. As far as phone calls are concerned that is the system prompting you, not me, and they do cost more money, I prefer text but in some cases a phone call is required. If I don’t answer right away or quickly in conversation I am helping another customer or have stepped out for a moment and will respond as soon as I can. Ok lets get started!

Give me one minute I will check them again
Ford Mechanic: Mechanic01, ASE Certified Technician replied 9 months ago

sure thing, take your time ill be online for a while, I see in the earlier post you checked voltage at connector so you must have a testing tool, I would check power at fuses too just to be on safe side

all three fuses are good
Ford Mechanic: Mechanic01, ASE Certified Technician replied 9 months ago

so you wouldnt happen to have a computer/scanner that could access the bcm and monitor signal outputs?

Customer reply replied 9 months ago
No I sure dont
Ford Mechanic: Mechanic01, ASE Certified Technician replied 9 months ago

so here is how the system works and it will give you a better idea of what were dealing with, I would suspect the multi function switch, but without the scanner we can just do visual checks on each component and some voltage testing

The Steering Column Control Module (SCCM) monitors the multifunction switch position. When the multifunction switch is in the LH or RH TURN position, the SCCM sends a message over the High Speed Controller Area Network (HS-CAN) to the Body Control Module (BCM) indicating a request for the LH or RH turn signal.

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.
