1968 camaro no blinkers now.

I had blinkers when working on wiring. had to pull steering column down to remove gauge cluster. So I could install new dash pad installed everything. Now no blinkers But when I put a test light into the wire either the blue right front or the yellow right rear the blinker works. But when I remove the tester the light on dash stays on and nothing outside works.

Anybody know??????

Check to make sure all dash panel grounds were restored...or, possibility when you disturbed the connections in the large quick disconnect above the steering column, dirt may have contaminated the source. If grounds are fine, clean connector with contact cleaner and try again.

Re: 1968 camaro no blinkers now.

your top center mounting screw on your guage cluster makes the ground connection to your main dash structure. this ground point is a common problem for guage/lighting issues it gets rusty/corroded. it is also a good idea to run a seperate ground wire from your guage cluster to a ground point under dash for better connection

Sounds to me like a blown bulb(s).

Re: 1968 camaro no blinkers now.

I think grounds followed by an inspection of the "harmonica" on the lower half of the steering column for broken or loose connections moved when the steering column was dropped. Also as noted your year has notorious issues with the grounds. Many add a real ground wire.

Re: 1968 camaro no blinkers now.

Thanks for the help on the blinkers.
I did find the problem. I'm running all led bulbs and blinker wont work with out the flasher with the ground wire so I changed the front blinker /parking bulbs and everything works just fine now.
Again thanks for all the suggestions I did fix the bad looking grounds.
