turn signal makes park lights blink 69 camaro

When the park lights are on all 4 lights are lit. When the brake is applied, all 4 brake lights are lit. When the turn signal is applied, it pulses the park light. Any ideas what is wrong with the wiring?

Re: turn signal makes park lights blink 69 camaro

I responded to your pm with this:


I can try, but I'm more of a 67-68 guy than 69.
I believe when you hit the brakes, both (edit--- this was b4 i looked at the diagram, only the outer are turn / stop.) red lights on each side should light up.

according to the wiring diagram, all 4 are "tail lights" but only the outers are "turn and brake"

It sounds to me like you do not have any ground to all those lights. There should be one small black wire that goes through all the lights and then is screwed to the trunk latch support. Check it.

If you still have trouble, I have a nice color wiring diagram I could email, send me mail at [email protected] and I'll zap it back to you.

note that it is generally better to post in the forum, you'll get stuff from more people, and there are a great many many people on here.

you might also try cleaning the sockets the bulbs are in and the housing to make sure your gettinga good ground there also. The ground could be weak and any voltage loss to the other bulbs when braking etc pulls just enough to make them dim or seem to flash. I did this on my 68 i sold a few months ago and it solved all my problems. Also make sure the ground Jim speaks of is on tight and on clean metal with no corrsion. While your at it check all other grounds just for good measure. You never know after 40 years what some one has done.
