Confused electronics.

When the driving and/or headlights are on, my left indicator light stays on on the dash. When I turn on the indicator to the left position, the dash indicator light flashes in opposition to the vehicles external turning indicators. The right ones are normal. I have done nothing in the dash but have wired a new electric fan recently.

Re: Confused electronics.

Bad ground most likely. Check where the lights up front ground to the core support.

Re: Confused electronics.

Exactly. But to clarify, check the left parking light ground. The housing is gounded via its mounting screws. Or the lamp socket itself might be isolated from the housing from corrosion. Same effect.

Re: Confused electronics.

67-68?
If your saying itís just the indicator in the gauge cluster itís most likely the cluster ground. Itís under the center upper screw that holds the cluster in. There is either a wire or flat metal strap that runs up and under that screw and grounds to the metal dash. Notorious point of gauge ground issues.

If itís at the lamp, probably the ground at the lamp.

Re: Confused electronics.

Rock on. I'll check the indicator ground up front and see what's going on. Here's hoping it's an easy fix!!
