Re: No signals now. (Last elect. question.I promise)
Visual inspections are better than nothing but not as good as a test with a volt meter. Activate the lamps and measure between the ground lead and the battery ground - should see very small voltage or 0 volts. Next measure from the lamp power wire to the battery ground - should see 12 volts though I doubt it will flash on and off like you'd expect. When the dash turn signal indicators stay on, it essentially means you've got an open circuit such as a burned out bulb, bad grounds, etc. If you don't see 12 volts on the lamp power wire, you'll have to work your way up. Next place I'd look is the flasher element itself. I presume your talking about a 1st gen camaro. If so, the turn signal flasher will be located behind the dash near the ash tray. The flasher in the fuse panel is for the hazards.
