    Ride Side Blinkers don\'t work...

    I just spent an hour and a half under the dash of my 71 and I still cannot figure out why the right side blinker will not work with the head lights on. They work fine when the head lights are off, but turn in the head lights and the right blinker light just comes on and stays on. It does not blink, just sits there. Anyone else had a similar problem?
    Thanks in advance,
    Robert

    Pull out the flasher relay and re-seat it....for starters.

    The fact that it's only on one side though, makes me think the relay is OK. Isn't that the way that GM lets you know you have a bulb burnt out? I'd check all the bulbs on that side and make sure nothings blown.....

    I've had similar problems in the past and it usually ends up being a ground issue.
    I'm not sure why it changes when the headlights are on, but try making sure the light housing is connected and properly grounded.
