    UseYourBlinker HAS NO BLINKER\'S!!!***UPDATE***

    I'm having a string of bad luck! My front turn signals don't work. The side markers,and tailights work,but not on the front. Where should I start looking to find the problem?

    Bulbs, then the flasher unit on the fuse block. You just did the body lift so maybe you stretched a wire or something along those lines, missing ground wire etc etc.../forums/images/icons/smile.gif

    Have fun, I hate electrical!

    I guess I have to take some of the blame as I was the "Jack Man" that day. I'd agree with tRustyK5 and check the wires where they attach to the body. It has to be that last lift for position #4 &amp; #5 on the passenger side. We had it maxxed out to get the last two in.

    Well when something 'suddenly' stops working right after a recent job I try and look what I may have done during that job. I once swapped in new plug wires and my power tailgate window stopped working.../forums/images/icons/crazy.gif Turns out I inadvertantly unplugged the plug at the firewall for the tailgate window. It took me a couple of hours until I put two and two together.

    Did you check your blinker fluid?? /forums/images/icons/smile.gif

    I just could not resist.

    Seriously...check all grounds.. Most of the time, ground is the problem.

    Sweet..found the problem. One of the bulbs was rusted and had a crack in it. Went to Kragen's to get some new bulbs (they were fresh out) So while I was there I picked up a new flasher. Came home put it in (with some clear blubs) and everything works../forums/images/icons/smile.gif

    In a show of support, Frankentruck today decided that I no longer needed a left turn signal indicator light : )

    Like yours, this too will be fixed. Nice to know its simply the bulb, and yet another good reason to have waited to put the dash back together!
