I was looking a post you were dealing with before, it says I need to look at a harness because the harness is too tight and could have been pulled out. What harness is it and where is it located
Ford Mechanic: Ron, ASE Certified Technician replied 6 months ago

If in fact, you have a problem with the harness being stretched to tight it will be at the multi-function switch at the connector that plugs int it. You will need to remove the cover behind the steering wheel to check it. If the wire looks okay and are in place then I would check the multi-function switch. Usually, if the connection is okay and you have flashers working the common other problem is a failing multi-function switch. I have enclosed the steps in the link below to test the switch if need as well as the wiring diagram for testing reference. Have a look and post back if you have more questions and or need more help.
