Turn signal issue

Not sure if this is the right place for this or not but..

I have an early 99 and my left turn signal sometimes quits working. I think it's in the stalk because I can hear the solenoid kinda fast blinking but the signal won't work when that happens. If I pull the stalk back or wiggle it, I'll get the signal again.

Is there any way to rebuild or clean up contacts, etc. on these? I know there was a wiper fix on F150's (that I did for a buddy) that involved cleaning contacts. I'm just hoping for something simple like that!

Mine is kind of the same way as yours. If I push the arm down too fast, my left signal doesn't work but you can hear the relay clicking really fast like the bulb is out. I've just learned to put it on a little slower, mainly because I'm too lazy to fix it

thats great my early 99 does the same thing


sometimes I have to turn it on and off a couple times then it starts working.. pretty sure the only fix is to replace the switch

I plan on changing mine this spring while I have the truck off the road for a month or so likely march or april

sounds like you are low on blinker fluid. (sorry had to do it)

but really i had a 00 that did the same thing and i would just move it slowly or just not use it.

I have an early 99 and mine did same thing except wouldnt work at all. Took steering column cover off snd the clips that hold the plud in together on switch were broke. You can buy a new conector at ford for like 9 dollars and some change and switch out the pins (they just push in and out) and you are back in buisness.Any questions pm me

Had the SAME problem in my 2000 (late 99 build). Neither signal would work unless the wheel was all the way up, if it was one click down only one side would work, any farther down and neither would work. It also set a soft code for the "Park Validation Switch" which prevented high-idle in the cold. I took the covers off and the clip for the harness was broken, so I just wrapped a couple zip-strips around it and it's fine and dandy now!
