1997 Ford E-350 No Turn Signals

Hello I'm new and tried asking in a different thread but it's so old I don't know if anybody will see it. I'm a maintenance manager at a nursing home. We have a 1997 Ford E-350 Van registration says Econoline but van says club wagon (I don't know much about Ford vans) and yesterday we noticed the turn signals were out. Checked fuses ok, checked flasher relay ok, checked for continuity at flasher ok, replaced lamps, multi switch seems to be working. Here's the curve ball. This morning we have no brake lights and turn signals are working. Help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

20yr old van in Idaho? Several electrical item all don't work? I'd start by locating the various ground connectors, where they attach to the body (in the engine compartment, behind the tail light assemblies I think). Unscrew the connection, sand the bare body metal, wire brush the connector and screw, retighten.

Well they got back from a transport got to look at it again and the turns work and brake lights work but no tail lights. Also she said they weren't working while she was gonna but I noticed that the hazard switch was activated so I deactivated it and turns and brakes work now (faulty hazard switch or is there a separate relay for hazards?). I will definitely try your suggestion and let you know how it goes.

Also, not to be unwelcoming, but this is a forum specifically for Sportsmobile camper vans (and similar campervans). For general Ford van questions about a van used for commercial/transport uses, you'd be better served at the Ford Truck forum at https://www.ford-trucks.com/forums/forum128/

Also, people (including me) have already replied to your question in the other thread: have you looked there? http://www.sportsmobileforum.com/for...t-10812-2.html

How do you know the multi-switch is working? That's still my guess. Part is around $50 or so and doesn't take long to replace as a DIY, so I'd start there. See this thread for directions and photos: https://www.ford-trucks.com/forums/1...res-added.html.
