Hey guys, i was wondering where the turn signal flasher is located on a 99 grand marquis. The hazard lights are working, and i can hear the flasher for that clicking, but none of the turn signals work, and no clicking noise from the flasher with left/right turn signals on so im assuming it just needs a new flasher...but where is it?

ouch, so I guess that basicially means the idea I had for replaceing the turn signal flasher onthe vic with one that is from an 18 wheeler (semi) is out of the question?


I want to have the slow long flash that most semis have when they use there turn signals...any suggestions of how I might be able to achieve that if I cant replace just the turn signal flasher?

18 wheeler flashers are very different, even from standard car flashers. They are more like a car's starter solenoid than anything. at least the older one's anyways. the 2000+newer trucks have gotten a little more modern and use a flasher like this

You could probably wire one into an older car if you wanted, but i dunno in detail how this newer flasher system works on these cars.

im mostly wanting to simulate the long hold in the "on" (when the turn lamp is lit up) that the semis usually seem to have, they tend to make a CLICK on for 2 seconds or so, CLICK, off for 2 seconds or so, so on so fourth type pattern...


Not sure if i'm explaining it well enough and with out a physical semi to turn on and record what I am talking about its kinda hard to describe in words...

hmm, ill have to take a closer look at it here in a few, i just assumed the flasher was something simple i could change out like the old style ones. Going to check fuses now.

Is there a linky somewhere i can see what all the fuses are for? like what position 1 fuse controls, position 2 etc. The fuse layout i suppose you would call it.

The oldest manual ford has is this 1996 cv owners manual. Would it be the same maybe?
