1998 Crown Victoria turn signal/flasher

Push the flasher switch, nothing happens. Thereafter, the previously fine turn signals are dead. Took it to Firestone, they said they couldn't figure it out, but on the way home the turn signals were working
fine. Short of never trying to turn the flashers on again, which is a very cheap fix, any ideas of what the problem is?

Not clear!
The 4-way switch bypasses the turn signals. Look for the 4-way flasher module.

Turn signals and hazard are controled by the lighting control module, no flashers any more.

With out putting a volt meter on the circuits and testing them, it's anybody's guess. It's more than likely the multifunction switch.
