i'm not an electrician, but i played one on TV

you might check to confirm you have power coming into the T/S switch, then confirm you have power out to the circuts to each function... left signal, right signal etc... check the ground(s) etc.

maybe the switch is bad but you'll need to check it out

the bold type above... this is regarding the flashers still, right ??? or are the dash lights not working also ???


could be the T/S switch took a dive... maybe a tester will tell ya if it's working. turn on the signal indicator and probe with the tester and see if power is going IN and then coming out

stop light circuit runs thru the turn signal switch and shares the same wiring, so do the stop lights work?
