I just had a rear turn sigal bulb burn out so I replaced it. Now my turn signals do not work. I went to replace the flasher but can't find it. It is not in the fuse block. Is it on the steering column under the cover? This is on my 73 Mach. The manual isn't much help, shows it for everythinng except the Mustang.

Thanks in advance.

On 68, the flasher is incorporated into the main harness, so its behind the dash instrument panel. I would guess it would be in the same general area for yours.

behind the glove box on the left side. It looks like a cylindrical alu. capacitor.

Actually, it's attached to a metal panel that is mounted above the glove box. You have to remove the glove box insert to get to it.

I removed the glove box panel before I posted and did not find it. I will look again. I can't hear it because the turn sigs. won't blink. This is kind of goofy.

I will look some more tonight, but if anybody knows for sure where it is I would appreciate it if you would share that info with me.

Thanks All.

In a 69 coupe there is one (metal unit) attached on the metal dash around where the radio/ac heater controls...towards the back of the metal dash and on the left hand side of the ac heater controls. There is also a blue plastic one (not sure what it is) that is attached behind the ac heat controls, right hand side, on the inside of the metal dash.

Hope this helps,

Marc Cramer

Jack's right (no surprise there), it's behind the glove box. I replaced it not too long ago.

Thanks all, I will look for it again tonight behind or above the glove box.

Cramer, the blue one is most likely your hazard flasher.

Above the glove box. There are two or three screws holding a metal panel in place. Remove these screws and the panel will drop down. There are other relays and buzzers on this panel as well.

BTW, now is the time to ditch the seat belt buzzer..

Nothing worthwhile is ever quick, cheap or easy, those that can't do, complain
