Re: Turn signal flasher relay

Here is a snap shot of the flasher and turn signal part of the system. The signal flasher SHOULD have 12 volts at that connection, as that has come from the four way flasher switch. As I tested, it does, so the next issue is at the flasher butt connector ( at least based in this diagram) for any iss...

Re: Turn signal flasher relay

Of Course, what a good idea!

I am going over to the 510 today and do some cleaning of front grounds and take the steering column apart.

I will THINK about whether I will pull switch out.....

Re: Turn signal flasher relay

While I think of it, as Robyn and I try to figure this out, it would be great if we could get another few voltage readings from non messed with harness's, specially the voltage at that rear turn signal socket, left and right. If we see a pattern of low voltage, it kinda either speaks to a general re...

Re: Turn signal flasher relay

So did you take that switch apart? It is all sealed up. That little spring loaded ball bearing looked like a bear to get back in and together?! I must admit that I am gun shy to take mine apart, I may just spray it with cleaner inside if I can. "If it ain't broke, don't fix it"...as I do have functi...

Re: Turn signal flasher relay

Thanks Norm, that would be good. Today I stopped by Robyn's and we did some testing. He had the same lower/low voltage at the back of his cars also. After working our way back and unplugging the harness at the steering column, that feed the turn signals, we finally found a full battery voltage at 12...

Re: Turn signal flasher relay

So that is virtually the same as mine at this point.

I may pop over to the garage tomorrow and do some wire wiggling.

Re: Turn signal flasher relay

Ok, thanks Robyn..so I am not unique at this point, that makes me feel better! I did wonder if there is just a plain line loss to that back area?!. I spent today off and on between naps studying the wiring diagram, I think I have it kinda figured out. There are many places where a bad connection cou...

Re: Turn signal flasher relay

I did take that ground off and clean it, the one in the trunk. I wish it was not so hard to get under my dash, I would like to pull the plug and re-connect.

Also, what did the bulb and voltage change AFTER I changed that front bulb?!

Robyn, do you have 12 volts at the rear turn signal socket?

Re: Turn signal flasher relay

Morning Byron, I will get a copy done for you no problem, I enlarged mine to 12" x 20", really easy to read, in colour of course. No worries about this weekend, family "retirement" brunch for me and then meeting a fellow to sell my Honda wheels to. Your likely camping on the July long weekend? As I ...

Re: Thrift store find

No, that is a classic though! What I did find as I have been going through things was my Datsun Jacket from the 70's, that I thought I had long lost. As I have been dragging stuff away from work, I found my fire suit bag there. I guess at one of the many either hillclimbs or road races at Mission I ...

Re: Turn signal flasher relay

I have my box of lights ready to go, found my other bits from years past. I am having trouble reading the wiring diagram as I am not up to speed on convention of said wiring diagram. I have that enlarged colour copy of Paulo's, which is great, but not sure as to which way Mr. Electron actually goes ...

Re: Fred's 73 2dr 510

Looks really nice Fred. A word of warning and caution though...the factory REAR bump stops. Depending on how much we lower the rear on our 510's, coupled with rear spring rate and shock valving, on an extreme bump, it is possible to hit that bump stop. Under the right conditions that can cause a sud...

Re: Turn signal flasher relay

I picked up my wiring diagram today and can see that you MUST have the 4 ways working first, as THEY supply power to the turn signal flasher, so that is good, mine works just fine. I will now trace wires and try to see what is up at various connections. It has been a bazillion years since I had the ...

Re: Turn signal flasher relay

Success! Yesterday I rambled on over to the 510, really wanting to get this LED/flasher thing sorted out. I am going to write this as I actually progressed through the testing. See if you fine mind electrical guru’s can see what is going on. My nice enlarged wiring diagram is still at my work, so I ...
