Mustang Blinker Woes

Stats:

1992 Mustang LX Convertable
5.0 L Automatic
No problems in last six months. Replaced alternator about 6 months ago.

Problem:

I was driving yesterday and I noticed that my blinkers that worked erlier in the day are no longer working. I mean nothing, no lights on the dash or external.

Action taken so far:

Checked fuse that my manual describes as handling the turn signals and it is OK.

Checked to see if hazard lights work and they do. All electrical seems to be working normally except the blinkers.

Replaced the blinker module in the fuse panel and still no working blinkers.

Questions:

My Chilton manual indicates that there are seperate modules for the hazards and blinkers. I have not been able to locate a second module. Is this true or do they both (blinkers & hazards) used the module contained in the fuse box?

Could it be the actual blinker switch contained in the column?

What else may cause this?

Thanks very much in advance for your help.

There are two flashers, one for the turn signals, one for the hazards.

Pull out the one you replaced (I'll bet you changed the hazard one by accident). If your hazards now don't work, you changed the wrong one.

Any parts store with a Wagner lighting catalog or any Ford dealer can tell you where the turn signal flasher is. That is the likely problem.

Barring that, probably a bad turn signal switch in the column.
