Kevinx, you wouldn't have a Ford part number would you?
Meanwhile, the original flasher is working - sort of - flashing the signals as it should but at a doubletime pace. This got me thinking that maybe once it dries out completely it might work right again.
With that in mind I put the flasher and the rest of the module - with flasher unplugged - into an airtight bag of uncooked rice last night to let it dry completely. I've used this trick with camera gear and cell phones that have been dunked with some success. The rice acts as a desiccant to pull the last bits of moisture out.
Thanks for all the replies!
