Lost blinkers and flashers.

I lost blinkers and flashers in my o1 ford ranger. Fuses good. Thought maybe it was mf switch got 2 new ones (from autozone so could be crappy) still didn't work. checked voltage to the plug wires( left blinker, right blinker and flasher.) I got 5 mV to each. Any ideas? Thanks

Do you still have the indication on the dash when you activate them?

I'm going to wager that the flasher itself has bitten the dust. If the iconic 'click-click, click-click' of the turn signal isn't heard while the turn signal is on (or hazards) then the flasher is most likely toast.

The flasher is located in one of two places. For my 99, it has it's own harness hovering around the obdii port behind the lower dash panel. For my father's 03, it's up in a black box with other relays, underneath the dash and towards the radio. You'll have to move the seat all the way back and lay on your back to see it if this is the case.

If you happen to have another Ford around, you can most likely swap flashers between the two vehicles. If vehicle number two loses it's indicators, scrap the flasher and buy a new one.

In that case, I agree with Cameron the flashers are probably gone, go check out rock auto, their customer service is amazing and the prices are really good too. Can't go wrong there, just don't get the cheapest one you see, go up a little

Rock auto is a fantastic place. I've ordered lots of parts from them. Wheel bearings, bushings, endlinks, shock absorbers, etc. Definitely recommended.

However, if you're interested in saving money, you could also head over to your local scrap yard and get a handful of flashers from other Fords instead of paying 10 bucks plus shipping for one.
