No blinkers
« on: June 14, 2019, 03:43:44 PM »
So I'm trying to get my 84 K10 road worthy. One of the problems is that the blinkers do not work front or rear. When I activate the blinker switch either right or left I get a solid indicator light on the dash, and no blinker action front or rear. My first thought was bulbs, but I pulled and tested the bulbs and they light up just fine when I put 12 volts to them. Can anyone tell me likely culprits, or the best way to troubleshoot this issue?

Replace the turn signal flasher.  Just realize there are two distinct and separate flashers that plug into the fuse box.  The lower one is for the turn signals and the upper one is for the 4-way emergency flashers.
It's difficult to know just how much you don't know until you know it.
In other words... if people learn by making mistakes, by now I should know just about everything!!!
