So I was out driving the other day . . .
I was out driving yesterday, getting my new custom "68GREAT" plate at the DMV, and at one point had to merge left. I gave the guy to the back left good warning and had my blinker on for a few hundred yards, but the guy would not back off. Finally I down shifted and hit the brakes a little and let him go by, wondering what was his damn hurry and putting my arm out to tell him to go ahead. I was kind of upset, but as I pulled alongside him at the light, he waited for me with an open passenger window and told me that when I had been trying to get over, my left turn signal triggered both turn signals. I had been pissed off at him and he was just trying to help.
Before I go screwing around with the wiring myself, has anyone heard of such a thing, and moreover, fixed it? After some testing, I have found that when the right turn signal is activated, only the right front indicator lights up, and nothing happens in back. With the left turn signal, both signals light up and flash. Inside on the gauges, the right turn arrow flashes correctly, but the left turn arrow stays solid. This is new territory for me and I dread electrical problems.
Thanks for any help, and if anyone has any step by step advice on what to try first second and so on to isolate the problem, that would be much appreciated.
