directionals

Okay guys, excuse me if this subject has just been brought up, I've not been lurking or posting since I moved to san diego so....The other day my directionals decided to give. I can move them up an down an the directional comes on outside an stays on so I have to move her up an down(to make them appear as if they are working fine) so folks can see where I want to move but it's real annoying changing lanes like this, I need here to work right again. I check the fuses, no problem, bulbs are fine to. I took off the steering wheel an tries to get at the directional handle but couldn't figure it out, the haines book pic of the plate is different than mine (85 1/2.) I tried to take a wire brush in there an get off any corrison but to no avail. any suggestions? Thanks alot.

brian

p.s. I also notice that the green light doesn't stay on when the outside light is on. Sometimes it blinks like once or twice then just a solid light outside.

Your turn signals are controlled by a relay. Find the relay and get a new one. If it's the propper type you may be able to use the generic $5 one at wal mart as a replacement.

it may just not be firmly seated which was the case with mine.

Makes sure its pushed in properly.

Definitely the relay. I had the same exact problem and replaced mine recently and it's been working flawlessly ever since.

You can get the generic relay, but I don't know about 5 bucks. Maybe a thermal one for $5, but an electronic one will be around $10, and you want to go electronic. I had a thermal one actually catch on fire on me.

Make sure you match the numbers on the leg posts of the old relay (there are several different wiring schemes in this type of relay) and don't get a heavy duty one designed for pulling trailers. Because your turnsignal bulb load will be too light the heavy duty relay will think you have a burned out bulb and go into the fast blink mode. That should do it.
