2000 T444E Blinker Issue

Just bought a 2000 International Pusher with 15 rows of seats. and has the T444E. I love it. Got it at an auction for $1825. Had 152,251 miles on it. Went to pick it up they put a new fuel solenoid in it and 2 new Napa commercial batteries. Had new belts, clean engine. This bus company took care in keeping the vehicles maintained. They were super people for helping me get it going. Everything worked, jumped in and drove home 350 miles. It purred. It moved with the governor set at 75. About half way home the blinkers quit working. Changed what I'm pretty sure was the flasher and checked all the bulbs. Tried to read the wiring diagram. (that was a joke) The flasher that I changed was in the outside panel by the drivers window. Any suggestion?

Thanks for any help.

Welcome,

Sounds like you got a good price on the bus. The T444e is not the bus model. That is the engine. A Navistar T444e. It is the engine that Ford bought from Navistar and called it the "7.3 Powerstroke". The Ford's used different electronics but a number of engine parts are interchangeable between the two.

Check the fuses. If the one for the turn signals is blown, you'll need to check for a short. The flasher module may be in/near the fuse block.

Its a pusher with 15 rows of seats. Don't know what they call it otherwise. I checked fuses, most of which are trip breakers. Nothing seems to work to get them going again. Only the blinkers, both side everything else is great

I have a 1999 RE with the T444E I did an all-LED conversion on. I replaced the blinker with a different type- in addition to the "plug" to go into the panel, it had a wire lead to ground to chassis. If yours has a lead, make sure it is well grounded.

The next thing I'd check is the fuse panel. Turn on the hazards and poke your multimeter in the flasher socket to ensure its getting power.

Thank you. I will try that. There is a short somewhere. Cleaned all the fuses on the right side of the box and it seems to be working again. I like the idea of changing all lights to led. I will hold off on new blinker switch but will try that next if it continues. Thank you for your help
