Q: Turn Signal Too Fast
My turn signals are flashing too fast. The only flasher I’ve seen in my 1968 is attached to the fuse box located near the left kick panel. Since a replacement flasher there did not fix my too fast turn signals, I’ll look behind the ashtray for a second flasher. I thought cars were equipped with only one.
A: Sounds like you have a heavy duty flasher in there. Put a regular duty flasher in and it should be alright.Heavy duty flasher doesn’t mean it’s built better,made for extra bulbs like when pulling a trailer.
A: The other flasher is attached to a connector on a wire. There is a spring type bracket that holds it. Look on the driver side around were your under dash interior light is.
A: The one on the fuse box is the emergency flasher. The turn signal flasher is up under the dash between the heater controls and the ignition switch area.
A: You guys are great. Just last week my turn signals quit working – and I mean quit just like that -Signal like a bad boy for ever and then nothing. Anyhow I went to napa, got a new flasher part # 552, exchanged it with the one by the fuse box and well still nothing. I as going to take my steering wheel apart THIS AFTERNOON because I was sure it was the switch. Well I just read this thread and went out there looked under my dash and there it was (it’s just over the “lip” of the bottom of the dash) I still had the one from napa and i exchanged it — Whaaaalaaa
