Default Turn signals....

I can't figure this one out, maybe I'm missing something......

When I turn my headlights on, the right flasher indicator is solid...always.

nothing changes when I switch the lever.

I can turn on my 4 way flashers and all works fine.

I swapped flashers in the fuse panel and I get the same results.

what am I missing?

Hey, I'll check that out.

Doesn't make sense to me that all six flashers would work when the hazards are on(counting side markers)....but that's normal when stuff don't make sense.

thanks

I would suspect you have a bad bulb or socket. I would guess you have already pulled out all the old bulbs and installed new? if not thats the first thing to do.

start with the rear ones
