Turn SIGNALS not working?

I just bought a 2001 F350, my first diesel. The only problem with the truck i have found so far is the turn signals dont work front and back. With the lights on, i can make the back blink by repededly pressing the turn signal lever up or down( for left and right). Every once in a while, when pressing the lever the front signals will blink just once. If i push the lever all the way down like normal, nothing happens. It locks in place but does not blink. Any ideas?

My powerstroke has nearly the same problem. Except mines dont work at all unless i press on the brakes and put the turn signals on and then one of the brake lights goes out. I tried replacing the electronic flasher (Relay 1 on fuse panel) But still no luck. In your case you might just get lucky since it would only be a $9 fix.

My truck is doing the EXACT same thing as 7.3FOR-ME. If i have the brakes on, i can make the rear blink sometimes by playing with the blinker arm. I took the dash apart and replaced the "blue" box with a new electronic flasher from auto zone(nothing happened). I have not tried replacing the relay 7.3 is talking about because i'm not sure which one it is. Thanks for the help guys. Hopefully i can get to the bottom of this without to much $$$$. My next TRY will be the multifunction switch but that is a little pricy.

Just wondering do you have a 5th wheel trailer hookup plug? I tried replacing that relay that you did under the dash and nothing happened either. I had seen on other posts about people who had replaced the switch in the steering column and no luck. I think the 5th wheel triler plug might have something to do with it. Let me know if you have a plug to.thanks

Also wanted to add. If youv'e ever seen a turn signal flasher their a little metal box. Put your hazards on and listen to that clicking. The hazards have a seperate flasher.(Thats what Carquest said) so I would imagine that the turn signal flashers are in the same area. I bought one but couldn't find anything that looked like it. If you see it also let me know.thanks

7.3 for-me. I do have an electronic break controller on the truck. It was there when i bought the truck and it has never worked. When i plug my trailer up, nothing happens. No trailer breaks or lights. You think this could have something to do with it??? Also the flasher relay i found was under the dash to the right of the steering colum

I have a brand new Multifunction switch in the box from a Ford dealer. Cost at the dealer around 100 bucks. I will sell it for 50 bucks plus shipping. I bought it because I had a blinker problem. I ended up having a short in the wiring. Once I repaired that I have had no problems.
