Good deal! Did replacing the MFS fix your problem?
This was a fantastic write-up! The pictures were excellent!
Your instructions were accurate for our 2002 Ford Explorer XLT.
My 15 year old son with auto mechanic aspirations, but with little mechanical or car repair experience so far was able to follow the directions and did the repair by himself with no help from dad! See attached photo of him reassembling the steering column.
This posting saved us a few hundred dollars! Thanks BigRondo!
Mine is on the drivers side! Fuse box and right above it I can feel the relay blink when it decides to work. It is blue as I can see it but I can not get to it unless I have really small hands. I removed 1/2 of the dash and so far I still can not get to it. ARG~ Not sure how to get to it to pull it out.
Soooooooo....... hummm..... Maybe tomorrow when more light out I can figure out something.
Thanks for the copies and I download the Owners Guide! Big HELP! Now to get it replaced!!
My 2004 explorer it would blink a few times then stay on on both left and right. Then I turn on the 4 way as it works. When turn off the 4 way then turn on right or left then they would blink 10 +/- times then stop with the light on as it would no longer blink.
I replaced the turn switch, I guess that is what is called the Multifunction switch. I bought a used one that a tree fell on the car. Same make model of my car and it came apart like mine so it was easy to get it out. So I put this on into my car and still the same problem. It will work for a few 10 blinks +/- then stay on. Dealers are not much help for anything as they do not know other then bring it in.
I check all the bulbs and when it is working that they all work.
Not sure what step needs to be taken now, other then replace it with a new one from the dealer?
great post -very helpful made the job quick and easy with one exception, the MFS screw on my '02 XLT was 5mm not 7mm so i had to run back down to the basement to grab a 5mm (and another adult beverage). Also the flexable boot for the tilt wheel just unclips from the top column cover so you can take the cover all the way off
