Hello everyone,

I recently got my hands on an 84 GLwagon with 206k miles on it. The only thing that wasn't working were the turn signals. I found the hazard knob in the "on" position and when i turned it off they worked. Prior to finding that i checked all the fuses. The fuse labeled horn/hazard/clock was blown.
I installed a new one and it blew on contact with the key not even in the ignition. The clock works although it's always 1:00 no matter what time i get in. I'm not even concerned about it.
The horn and hazards do not work. I know certain leads are hot all the time
but that doesn't explain it blowing the 15 amp fuse that it's rated for. I suspect the turn signal / hazard unit buried in the dash is bad. If anyone knows of something else it could be i'd really appreciate the info.

More likely the wiring going to the switch or flasher unit.

Does the fuse blow with the turn signals off or on?

Oh, I'm very observant...my question was answered in your post. It's probably a shorted wire.
