I have a 69 Camaro and I am having issues with my turn signals. When I use either the right or the left turn signal, all of my lights flash including marker lights. I have a new turn switch and new flashers. The plug is clearly sending the correct signal for each side yellow and green wire.When I use the flasher button it works like it should by flashing all lights.
Any thoughts here
Thanks

They are super bright led with no filament. This was happening before I changed them out.
I have taken apart the right e switch and is dis engaging completely. If
I put a light on the brown hazard wire, it is strobing constantly even though the e flasher is not ticking. STUMPED!

Did someone modify the marker lights to blink when the blinkers are on by connecting the marker lights ground wire to the blinker wire?

So which bulbs are now LED bulbs and did you change both flashers to LED compatible flashers?

So, it was doing the exact same thing when you had filiment (non LED) bulbs?

Check all your grounds to the bulb housings, front and back.

HI all,
I have somewhat the same problem. The left blinker does not blink. The right one works fine. The hazards work fine. Just the left blinker just stays solid and the indicator on the dash stays solid also. But not when the hazards are on then everything works fine. Any ideas??

Thanks

The hazards and the turn signal use different filaments in the bulbs I think. I would start by replacing the flasher. On a 69 it's up under the dash by the radio, not the one in the fuse box. I think you have a 68.

Either the left rear or left front bulb is bad.

The hazards and blinkers use the same filament in the bulb and the fact that the hazards and right blinkers are working means that both flashers are good.

As Al stated one of the bulbs is either bad, or if they both are staying lit then you may have a bad ground, most likely at the blinker bulb socket at the left front or left rear. If there's not enough current flowing through the blinker flasher then the flasher will fail to blink and both bulbs will just stay lit. Electrically a bad ground will look like a resistor which limits the amount of current flowing through the flasher.
