Turn Signal Troubleshooting Proceedure

The other day I stupidly grounded out my horn relay causing a spark. (Like a dolt, had it unbolted and free hanging, allowing the hot wire to touch the chassis). Now my Turn signals don't work. (but, when I press on the brakes, even with the key out, the green turn signal triangles on the console light up. Weird.)

So here are my questions:

1) What all items that are "blowable" are in series with the Turn Signal system? BTW - All the fuses in the drive side fuse panel are fine. What else is there in line...fusable links? Relays?

2) Is it possible that I blew that big silver relay component mounted on the fuse panel (called a flasher relay?) How do I check if that is working? Is that even part of the Turn Signal system?

3) Is "flasher" Camaro's word for "turn signal?" or is it just for the "hazards".

BTW, the hazards don't work now either.

Thank you!

Re: Turn Signal Troubleshooting Proceedure

I'd recheck the fuses with a probe or meter first. Other than that it sort of sounds like you lost a ground?
I don't think you blew a relay, and yea flasher is for the signals. They are probably all on the same fuse, I don't recall without looking..

Re: Turn Signal Troubleshooting Proceedure

Ok, now I am TOTALLY confused. Was dinkin' around again with the Horn Relay (which ended up being fine...see new post..."Horn Not Working? CHECK FOR BUTTON CORROSION FIRST!!") But in turn sparked it again! Now, the turn signals work again!!!

As a side confusion issue, they now work with the "Flasher Relay" REMOVED!!

Is my Camaro Posessed??

69's have two flashers. The one in the fuse box is hazards T/S is mounted to right of steering column on a brace under the dash. Not sure about 67. That's how the T/S can work with the "flasher" out
