'86 wagon turn signal woes
Posted 15 January 2004 - 12:00 AM
I was throwing the finishing touches on the '86 Wagon when the turn signals got intermittant and then went out.
I found the fuses for the hazard and turns blown. I replaced the fuses, signals worked ok for a few seconds then went out again. This time the fuses are ok
Is there a flasher or is the flasher built onto the turn signal/hazard unit?
The turn signal switch is making funny noises when I switch it back and forth, so I'm beginning to suspect the switch.

But if the switch is makeing funny noises, or feels funny, thats the most likely culprit.

I would go thru and check your bulbs, bulb sockets, and electrical connectors before even thinking of messing with the switch. Some of the symptoms you describe can be the result of an incomplete circuit.
Not sure what you mean by "intermittant" and "funny noises". If you mean that the light comes on but doesn't flash, then I would strongly suspect a bulb. If it doesn't come on at all, or only if you wiggle the turn lever, then the switch.
A rapid clicking noise would also point to a bulb or loose connection.
good luck, John
