Another strange turn signal issue
#1
So my blinkers work fine for a while then they quit and just come on solid no blinking after a couple of turns. If I turn on the flashers and turn them off the blinkers start working again. Any ideas?

defective turn signal flasher above glove box.

best guess the bimetal switch inside after cycling a couple of times getting hot is getting stuck closing the circuit and the lights stay on.
you turn off the blinkers and turn on the hazard and the flasher cools off, then you go back from the flashers to turn signal and it gets stuck again after cycling.

Original turn signal flasher is industry number 323. The emergency flasher (#552) which was designed to flash tail and park/turn signal lamps all simultaneously is a better and stronger flasher. I've used it in place of my standard flashers and have never had a problem. I know its getting harder to do, but try to find a name brand American manufactured unit. Smile

Update. So there was a #536 thermal flasher installed. It would quit after so long until you waited and tried again. Did some research and ended up with a Novita EL12 electro mechanical flasher. Made is USA and recommended by the counter guy at two parts stores and a tech at the local ford dealer. Installed and works great. They don't stop working and done blink really fast either.

glad you fix it.
i went though a couple of turn signal flashers, some were VERY loud in clicking and they flashed at different rates took a while but i found an old Bi-metel mechanical flasher that didn't have loud clicking or drove me insane at night when it was quiet inside the car.

Can anyone tell me if there are two flashers or one for turn signals and one for emergency?

Two, one for turn signals, one for emergency flashers.

Something to keep in mind when replacing front and rear turn signal lamps with LED's.  You need two LED flashers.
