1997 F150 Blinker Switch

Question

icechipper

How hard is it to replace the blinker switch in a 1997 F150? It doesn't seem to be a pain in the summer but with the cold it acts up quite a bit. Thanks!!

Its a turn signal switch assembly. Once you remove the plastic covers from the steering column there are a couple of screws that hold it in place. About 45 minutes for the average do it yourselfer to replace.

I think the ignition tumbler has to be removed to get the lower cover off. If it does look for the hole in the cover below the tumbler (the part that accepts the ignition key) If you look closely with a flash light you will see a button. Push it in with a small headed screw driver and turn the key to the on position. You should feel the button move in. Pull on the ears of the tumbler and it should pull right out.

Hey icechipper, I'm curious what you mean by a "acting up". When it is below zero and I turn the right blinker on I get a fast blink. ((kind of like it does with a bulb out) It was even doing it while still under warranty but of course it would not act up for the dealer. It is fairly infrequent so I will probably live with it but I'd appreciate a post if you fix yours and how it went.

Yep samething, it will blink fast, and I have checked the lights front and back when it does but can't remember if the flash or if one of them does not. The other issue is the wipper switch and washer "button" which is all built into the blinker, so fix one fix all hopefully. Now just have to decide when to replace it this winter or in the spring.

Airjer thanks for your expert help!!!

      Hey Joshua, May be post back in the morning when the owner of this site is awake and see if he likes the Free bait, buy later your selling. May be you can work out the sponsor-vendor deal with him.  I'll have to say posting late at night when site owners and most of the Mods are asleep is a good way to get some site and product views in before it's deleted. Good luck with the sales!

      According to the Army Corp of Engineers weather station here in Waskish we have had a grand total of  1.29 inches of precipitation so far in 2018.  When we were burning the grass of there was still about 30% snow cover. The flames were hitting 10 feet high.

      Nice to see there might actually be some ice melting up that way! jkrash, those are hooded mergansers though.   I might’ve called out my first woodie sighting this year as one of those too.  But nah!  I know what I saw had to be woodie! Haha! Seriously though, I’ve seen more, and more variety of ducks this spring than ever  in my life.  The late lake ice outs have made the river a diver Mecca.  I think I saw a few with Ely or bust signs on em too!  The bulk of woodies have been in the Little Falls area for about a week, some for a couple.  The hoodeds have been here for at least a month. They’re all coming though!
