Don't know which way to turn

Turn signal quit working on drivers side, power at the flasher outlet, was blinking on passenger side not drivers, now I have a constant power on passenger side only, changed the flasher, still constant power no flash.
Popped a fuse while probing for power, my fault, can't figure why I'm getting power from the lever to the flasher to the bulb with no flash.
On drivers side out of colum power to the flasher,..any suggestions are appreciated.

Re: Don't know which way to turn

There are two flashers. if it's a 67 then there will be one near the ignition switch as well as the one on the fuse panel.

It's a 69 ,For the life of me can't find the second flasher, checked hazards one side operates, I know there must be a second one somewhere,, I'll keep looking.

Flashing passenger side, not drivers, power from switch good, have to trace it back to the fuse panel, hoping it's just a ground,

Getting juice on the colum at first harness connector on the green wire with switch on, can't find fire to another, does anyone know which wire I should be testing from the switch for the drivers side, and do they use separate grounds from right to left... Thanks

Re: Don't know which way to turn

believe grounds are at the light housings themselves. left rear side yellow wire, rightrear dk grn, lft frt lt blue, rt frt dk blue.
The blue wires also feed the dash directional lights

Thanks,I'm getting 5.9 volts at yellow wire at first harness connector at the colum,with switch on, green wire goes to 12 and works fine, big brown wire is 12v , if I jump 12v to yellow wire I get a constant with no flash, I'm about at my witts end and frustrated, trying to figure out how to test the switch without removing the steering wheel, trying to make cruising the coast.... I'm baffled at this point.

With the probe in the purple socket I get 12v ,with turn signal engaged it drops 4.75 v, with right indicator engaged 11.9 and works, almost seems I'm missing a ground or maybe the switch took a dump on one side, idk..

Re: Don't know which way to turn

The flasher is probably good if one side is working. The problem is most likely a burnt out bulb or bad ground on the driver's side. The bulbs will remain lit if there's not enough current flowing through the flasher to heat up the spring steel in the flasher and this happens when there's a bad ground that looks electrically resistive.

Changed both flashers, flasher and hazard,, thinking ground because I have 12v purple wire to switch, coming down from the switch on the right side all is good, voltage remains good, turn signal down to left purple wire drops below 6v, nothing woring on left (drivers side).... tried switching bulbs from right to left, no difference, they are 12 led's but they were working fine before today

Is there a way to bypass the turn switch to check if it's in the switch
