Flasher

My flasher on my 02 f350 is clicking and buzzing and it won't stop. I have replaced it but it keeps on. If you activate the blinker , brake or trailer brake it stops but if those things aren't activated it will just start clicking and buzzing while your driving down the road. Anyone got any ideas?

If you take the cover off (if yours has a cover) it's not as loud, can still hear it though. Sounds like a rattle snake under the dash.

Mine does the same thing. I had Marc look at it when we had a meet and greet at pismo beach in CA. He said that it was probably the Multi-Function switch. The MFS is licated under the top panel on your steering column. the switch comes as a unit and includes your turn signal arm. I suggest using a manual to take the panel off because there are a few steps to getting it off that include taking off the ignition switch housing and the bottom panel. The part is about 55-80 bucks depending on where you get it.

Have you tried a heavy duty flasher? I had a truck do the same thing and put a heavy flasher in it for towing and it stopped. It may be worth a try.

Okay so I need a multi-function switch. Since it is kinda high $55-$80 can I count that as a mod? lol
