Question Front blinker

68 Camaro coupe; my front blinker just stopped the other day, stays lite but no action. If I remember correctly there is a in-line fuse? the back is working just the front (also front side marker is not blinking). Any ideals? Just want to pass PA inspection and get my wheels on the road....thanks.

Re: Front blinker

John, Replace the turn signal bulb or the flasher. If the bulb works.....replace the flasher.

Re: Front blinker

I'll refrain from the standard inquisitive remark regarding blinker fluid.

Re: Front blinker

I would check the grounds on that side very closely, back too. Also carefully observe the bulbs with the blinker on, with and without the parking lights on. Sometimes with a bad ground, the blinker will still glow, but if you look close, both filaments are glowing dimly and it won't flash if the parking lights/headlights are also on. Problem is most often a bad ground on the tail light housing.

I had the same issue with my 67. There are ground wires right off the turn signals that should be checked carefully. They are in a very exposed area and subject to a lot of corrosion.
