Turn signal relay

The other day my left turn signal started blinking rapidly and the rear trun signal stopped working while the front still worked. 2 days later the right did the same thing.

I'm thinking it might be the multi function switch or a bad wire in the column. Anyone have this problem before? This is for my 2004 F350.

Thanks
Dave

Usually the rapid blinking is because one of the bulbs on that side burnt out.

Did you check the bulbs that "stopped working" to see if they were burnt out?

Simple fix. Change the bulbs.

Sounds like the multi function switch for sure. You might get it to work again by rapidly pulling the arm towards you, a few times, like you were flashing the high beams. This might help clear up the bad contacts not making up within the switch.

Bulbs are fine, I wish it was that easy.

I've also been getting an airbag light during night driving which might be something else in the column. I'm not sure if these could be related and if I can fix both while I have the dash and column apart.

Do a search for internet search for superduty steering column short, there's a video/article or two out there showing a known wire rub(bare wire) issue. There also a video on changing the multi function switch.

I'm having similar problem. I could not find the video. In my case, the headlights will not come on at night until I giggle the turn signal handle.
