1997 xlt
well i have a question about a turn signal problem on my 1997 explorer xlt. when ever i put on my left turn signal the signal flasher assembly buzzes like crazy. i replaced this and that did not solve the problem. is there anything else i should be looking at? i could not find any other relays (it sounds as if it is not getting enough juice).

You need to have your multi-function switch replaced. That is the turn signal/wiper/hi-beams switch. It is a problem with that and it can be very dangerous. I have read that it set someones steering column on fire. Mine did it once and I saw some smoke come up and it smelled bad. I dont think it costs more than 100 bucks.

Do a search and you'll find tons of info on it.
