What causes windsheilds to always be on and signal lights to just turn off? on 2002 Ford Escort

How can I fix this problem, wind shields do not turn off, signal lights turn on for a few seconds then turn off

You probably have a bad "multifunction switch". I'm assuming you mean windshield wipers?

It sounds like you may have a defective turn signal/headlight switch. We would be more than happy to inspect your vehicle at no cost so that you would know what is wrong & how much it would cost for repair. You can reach us at 562-802-1332 or by going to Thank You
I would be very hesitant to take it to a shop that doesn't even know the proper name for the part.
Would you prefer combination switch!!! Let's not do this...let's just try to help people get their vehicles fixed properly.....Thanks
