Any idea what the problem could be? I'm guessing clockspring but I can't seem to find any clocksprings for a 2000 Taurus online. Any help would be appreciated.

If you haven't already done so,check out yahoos answers . com. Just type in the same question you asked on T.C.C.A. make sure you specify that you have a taurus.

Muti-Function Switch (MFS) replacement. Not a hard DIY.
Clock spring is related to air-bag, not turn signals. (PS, it's not really a spring either.)


Multi-Function Switch (MFS) Problems
Common Symptoms: Headlights don't work (highs and/or lows), wipers don't work correctly, turn signals don't work correctly, hazards don't work correctly, any combination requiring moving the MFS or turning on another feature to get one feature to work.

I replaced the MFS, but it didn't fix it. Can the cam be fixed?

Do you have the same problem as the OP? If so, the only other issues I can think of are: a bad flasher, a short in the wiring or a light socket, or a possible blockage in the steering column preventing the arm from returning to the middle (off) position. Was the MFS that you just installed new or used?

I have researched this problem before, in fact my friend had the same problem with his Taurus(turn signal not cancelling) it was suggested on a few different sites, to use some wd-40 sprayed into the 4 way flasher opening and working the flasher. It cured his turn signal problem quickly, and for minimal cost!!
