    Default mystery blinker problem

    i hope somene has a wire diagram for a 1971 zed.

    Basically i used the stock fog lamp wire harness to install lights. Everything went fine.

    My turn signals dont work.
    Tested the switch-good
    Tested the flasher on a bench-good
    Checked continuity from the flasher to the fuse box-good
    Fuse-good
    Power to fuse-no power
    Continuity from the fuse box to the wire harness plug under the hood-good

    I tried applying 12v power to the circuit to energize it-no good

    Im stumped. Maybe my diagnosing is flawed. Not sure. Im not an electrical engineer. Yet...

    Did they work before you installed the lights?

    Here's a link to a diagram - http://www.atlanticz.ca/zclub/techti.../1971_240z.gif

    They can be cleaned out. Contact Dave Irwin or me about it if you need someone to do it for you.
