Unhappy Turn signals don't blink

Both front and rear turn signals will not blink. All signal lights come on but stay on including panel signal lights inside. Just no blinking. I replaced signal flasher on rear of fuse panel still does not blink.

I have a 1996 Ford F-150 Eddie Bauer Edition.

Sounds like you're blinker fluid is up for changing...remember use synthetic.










































































Seriously though, your turn signal switch is probably bad..do your highs/lows work or not?

could be something just as simple as a blown blinker fuse.

I had this problem recently. It was the turn signal relay/fuse thing. It's silver and round in the fuse panel. On my 92, one controlled both sides. There's another one on the back side that I assume is for the caution lights.

One flasher for the blinkers and one for the hazards. Make sure you changed the right one.

He said he already replaced the flasher relay in his initial post.....if a bulb on each side blew out...it wouldn't kill all the turn signals...it would blink really really fast.

EDIT: I think the hazard flasher is the one on the front....

Most trucks have the flasher replaced with a heavy duty one so trailers don't mess with the blinker timing, so it wouldn't necessarily blink faster or slower. But when a flasher fails completely it just doesn't flash.
