Turn signals stay on constant need help!!

so i noticed this morning after i hook up my trailer that my turn signals stayed on constant so once i got home i unplugged the trailer and they still stay on constant no blinking when you turn them on. so i unplugged my t connector for my trailer 4 way plug and put my light harness back to together like it would be from the factory and still they dont blink when turned on they just got right to constant. i can turn the 4 ways on and they blink but the turn signals wont.

so im thinking multifunction switch but im not sure anyone have any ideas or test i can try to figure out the problem?


thanks


Cam

Sounds like the multifunction switch. They only last 50***-100*** miles. When was the last time you replaced it?

In all previous vehicles I've owned , the turn signal and 4-way flashers were two separate units.
I haven't delved into my Ranger to see if that is also the case , but may well be.

Could be the multifunction switch as mentioned before... mine went bad & my turn signals wouldn't work at all nor the wipers. I removed it & shot some wd-40 in it & it worked a couple days then died completely. $90 and a new multi switch later & everything worked perfectly.

Also, does your T connector have a white ground wire? The connection could have broken loose or something.
