Default Another multifunction blinker issue

Hey everyone,

I have a 2002 PT Limited Edition with about 75k miles.

I've had the issue with the multifunction switch screwing up with the fog lights many have had here in the past. I solved that by just pulling out the fog light fuse and haven't had any problems for about the last 20k miles.

Then suddenly last week my blinkers quit working. I presumed it was MF switch-related, and I found this very helpful guide to taking it out:

How to Repair the Multifunction Switch w/ Pictures (Fog Lights)

To clarify, ONLY the blinkers quit working. The headlights and hi-beams, tail lights, etc. all work just fine. But since the blinker didn't work and neither did the emergency flashers, I presumed the turn signal relay was the problem.

I was lucky enough to find a turn signal relay from my local dealer for only $22, so I hoped that would fix my problem. Lo and behold, I switched it all out tonight and it did not work.

Does anyone else have any ideas or quick/cheap fix-its, or am I just going to have to break down and buy a whole new multifunction switch?

Thank in advance. This is a great forum!

I'm no expert and sorry no body has come to answer your question but it' looks like buying a new switch is your best answer.
