Blinker Problem

I am having trouble with my blinker and hoping someone can help. When I turn the blinker to the left, the rear and front lights start blinking perfectly. when i push in the hazards, all four blink great as well. but when i move the blinker to the right, the lights go brighter as they should, but they dont "blink" they just stay bright. Is there any reason it would be doing this? Thanks for any help you guys can give, I searched trying to find my same problem so hopefully this hasnt been answered a billion times.

Re: Blinker Problem

one of your park/signal lights is not getting a good ground , try just taking a piece of wire and grounding the tailight and front park light housings while the key is on and you have the signal lever on so they should blink , if the start blinking when you give them a ground then that's the trouble ,
another thing it could be and have seen it before is corrosion in the park/signal light bulb socket's take the bulb's out and clean the socket's and put some grease on them then atreinstall the bulbs again with the light on to blink and see if that helps

Re: Blinker Problem

Did you check the blinker fluid level?

Re: Blinker Problem

Try a heavy duty flasher, 552, for the turn signals located in the clip next to the steering column or maybe hanging loose by its harness next to the column.

Keep fiddling with the ground issues mentioned and make sure the bulbs on the right side match the bulb number on the left side, 1157.
