Re: Blinker

I would look at the emergency flasher switch. That has power when the key is in the off position.

Re: Blinker

Or, toss bones at the car and chant "ghost of relay, be gone"

I too would be pointing at the emergency flasher switch or emergency flasher relay sticking. These early Camaros used two flashers, one for the turn signal stalk on the steering column, and a second flasher for the emergency flasher switch button. If only one side of the car was flashing, I'd suspect the turn signal stalk. If all four are flashing, its the emergency flasher circuit.

Never argue with an idiot; they'll only drag you down to their level, then beat you with experience.
