Blinkers work opposite inside the car

so heres a wired one,,the blinkers in my 67 RS operate normally when your outside the car looking
at them,,(they blink somewhat slow IMHO, but am not sure how "fast" they are suppose to blink)
however inside looking at the guageckuster the opposite blinker blinks about 4 times then the correct side blinker starts to blink,,,,never seen that before


left turn, signal lever down, right blinker in guagesblinks for a few times then the left blinker starts
to blink

Re: Blinkers work opposite inside the car

Probably some back feed due to a bad ground at either the park or taillight housings

Not familiar with the wiring on a 67 but I had the same issue on a 69 but only when hi-beams were on. Circuit was backfeeding through the lamp cluster due to a bad ground. Check your grounds.

I hate it when those electrons don't go with their intended route.

Re: Blinkers work opposite inside the car

additionally when I signal a turn or press the hazard switch the fuel tank guage starts to plunge to "E"
I think the guage cluster will be coming out most of the backlighting is inoperative as well

Re: Blinkers work opposite inside the car

As mentioned, check the rear taillight sockets at the housings...a common problem.

The instrument panel (gauge cluster) is grounded to the top center screw at the dash. See the photo showing the back of the gauge cluster below.
