The flashers/blinkers on my 90 cougar ls are intermittently not working, and I went to try and replace the blinker relay or whatever its called but couldn't find it.

The car has the digital dash in it, and I fear its part of that.

Can you guys help?

IIRC, the flasher on my 92 ls was in the fuse box under the dash. I had the regular analog cluster though, but I dont believe it would make a difference. The flasher is just one of those cheap 552 (2 prong) unless im mistaken.

Correct, there should be two of them, one for turn signals and one for 4 Way flashers/hazard, the 4 way should be on the back side of the fuse block....

I found my flasher on the brace above and to the left the foot brake behind the knee panel, not where the F'ing Haynes manual said it would be.

Don't know if the cougar is different or not, but my 91 t-bird had the 5 pin Hazard/turning blinkers. If it is the 5 pin, You can only get them at a ford dealership or out of a yard. Make sure which one you have before you go and get a replacement for it because most stores will give you a 2 pin regardless of which one you need.

Why did they use a 5 pin flasher for something that has been 2 pin for 40+ years??? Go figure...

I did finally find it. It looks like its above the foot pedal.

It also looks like its one of those 5 pin units.

Have to see how much the dealer is gonna squeeze me for that.
