86 Aspencade turn signals

Post by 5str48 »

Both turn signals were working fine, then, suddenly, both stopped abruptly. Running lights both come on when ignition is on, but NO turn signal. Relay (the one under the coils) is okay I believe. How would I test the switch? Or am I overlooking something elsewhere in the circuit?

Check the fuse that's under the false tank (in front of the gas cap).

Do they work if you turn the hazard lights on?

I am having the same problem, my signals were working fine as was the emergency flashers, then nothing, the front light for the side I put the swich to goes dead but as long as it is in the middle the running light work,so I would think the switch is working the fact the both the turn signals and the emergency flashers stopped it is not the flashers,they are two different unit's so were should I go now?
I thank you in advance for your help this sight is great
