ok so the multifunction switch sounds like the obvious culprate. sorry bout the not searching part was in a hurry when i typed it. new question how do i locate and replace the switch? i'm just trying to figure out where it is. i can probably put it in no prob. the harness seems fine to me.

Either get one at the dealer (better option) or get one from a junk car (ask racecougar). It's the turn signal switch. Take off panels around the steering column. Remove a few screws. Switch pulls off. Do reverse of steps.

Probably cost you $20+ for used. I'm not sure about new, but it shouldn't be more than $50, though some stealerships have asked like $100+. You could look up Dan Newman (do a search, you'll find info) and he should be able to get you what you want easily.

Thing about used ones is, the one I got was for the auto-dimming lights, so the high beams doesn't work. Also, sometimes they're already going bad or are bad before you get one, so a new one would be best. I think someone said a new one might be around $35.

Ya. Just make sure they know what you need. And don't let them sell you more than you need. You may want to add in some relays so you don't put so much stress on the elecrical components. Cost is about $12 to do everything yourself, and then you don't have to worry about burning another MFS up.
