1998 Taurus and Blinker/Hazzards

Anyone know what beside a fuse or just wigged out wiring that would cause blinkers/hazzards to only work when they want? usually about half the time they worok. I tried the WD-40 thing I saw on here the other day.

Re: 1998 Taurus and Blinker/Hazzards

The WD40 or electricl contact cleaner sprayed down next to the hazard button and operate the hazard and turn signal switch, will usually get it going again but you'll probably need to buy a new one. Check one of our sponsors, Rockauto, they have good prices and give our members a discount. Check the Sponsor section in the forums for the code.

Try the spray on it again. Sometimes it takes more than once.

Just to add, If you have other electrical issues besides that, make sure the battery terminals are cleaned of corrosion buildup.

It seems they work when it isnt that humid outside. The WD-40 worked for a bit, so I am gonna spray some more.

Re: 1998 Taurus and Blinker/Hazzards

Ok I have put a generous amount of WD-40 in the holes for the switches but what i notice is that the blinkers and hazzards work best when it is sunny and dry and NOT when it is humid. Does that mean anything fixable by me?

The only way to fix it is to get a new one. Our sponsor Rockauto has good prices and you can get a discount being a member here. Check the sponsor forums for the code.
