1) My cruise control went out today and just quit while in use today.
It doesn't work anymore.
2) My turn signals also went out today and I was wondering if there was
some kind of connection. I'm not sure if it went out with the cruise
control but I'm pretty sure these malfunctions are purely coincidental.
Does anyone have a fuse box diagram for the 1993 Ford Taurus or have
any clues as to why these things are broken?
Okay... I know you all will think I'm crazy but...
...the solution to my cruise control and the turn signal problem was
just to toggle the hazard light. Must have been stuck halfway or
something. Funny that the cruise is connected to the problem.
The problem: I flashed it to thank a truck driver who slowed down as I
passed him on a two lane highway and of didn't need to use my turn
signals for another 100 or so miles. Well, shortly after the hazards,
the cruise goes out and apparently, my turn signals also.
Now you know that this can cure this problem! Hope it helps. Thanks for
all your help!
Very likely the multi-function switch (does turn signals, flashers, wipers)
is getting flaky. They eventually fail and have to be replaced. Of course,
now that you know the cause, you can probably get by for quite a while just
by working the switches once in a while or whenever things stop working. I
have to replace the switches in both my '93 and '95 one of these days...
Cruise control can be a number of things, maybe clockspring in wheel or
switch or servo, etc, or even related to the TS problem.
If the turnsignals just quit, it's probably the MF switch at the
get a $2 fuse tester and start testing the fuses, or INVEST in the EVTM
for the make & year. The source: www.helminc.com
