My mother-in-law has a 1995 Grand Marquis. Recently the turn signals and
tail lights quit working. I opened the fuse panel, saw the blinker relay
was missing, and bought a new one. But when I tried to plug it in, it fell
right back out. After pulling the entire fuse panel down, I discovered
there isn't even a wiring harness running to the relay socket?
So where the heck is the blinker relay? I had my wife and brother-in-law
searching the car with me last weekend and we never could find it. The
owners manual say's it's in the fuse panel but there isn't even wiring for
it there. I bought a Chilton repair manual for the car, but the wiring
doesn't match the manual at all.
There's a small fuse box under the hood near the battery, but I removed all
three relay's in it and everything kept working? I have no idea what those
We finally discovered if we turned the emergency flasher on, the blinkers
and tail lights will work? Weird, but at least it's driveable now. Of
course, that means there's no emergency flasher.
There seem to be fuses, relays, and switches all over that car. So where
are the flasher relays located?
