When lights are off, turn signals "blink" like hazard lights are on. When lights are on all works well?


Asked by Mar 08, 2015 at 03:20 PM about the 1986 Ford F-150 XLT Standard Cab LB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

1986 Ford F150.  When the headlights are on, the right and left blinkers work fine.  When
the lights are off, like during the day, when I use the right or left blinker, they blink
simultaneously like the hazard lights are on.  Could this be a problem with the switch in
the steering column?  All the lights work, are getting power, etc.

1 Answer


Could be a problem with the hazard flasher on top of the column. I do not believe the headlights should flash in hazard mode, do they?
