Turn Signal Relay?

I have been trying to figure out what is wrong with my right turn signal, when I go to turn it on there is no flashing on the dash or the blinkers, and it does not even click. My left turn signals work as they should.

I cannot find a short from the wires causing the issue, is it possible the problem is the turn signal relay?

Cheers!

well, both left and right turn signal circuits as well as the hazard circuits all use the same pins on the flasher, I am not gonna go to that yet, althought they are cheap to replace if you want to just because.

if you turn on the hazard flasher, does the right side work?

Thanks Michigan,


with the hazard lights on, the right side still does not work. It won't flash at the dash or the blinkers.

After looking at the wiring diagram, the only wire I believe it could be related to is the gray wire that goes from the front right blinker, to the right turn signal indicator from the dash, the turn signal switch, hazard switch, and the rear right blinker. Both of the grounds work that are related to the blinkers.

Yes, the bulbs are good. I even switched the blinkers from the left side (working) over to the right side but got the same thing. No flashing, no clicking, nothing.

Odd. The riding lights work in front?

I'd check the wiring for a break, but seems unlikely as both the front and rear right side doesn't work. But I'd test for conductivity on that grey wire.

Yes the running lights work great.

What I do not understand at all is, if I unplug all blinkers front and back, left and right, and turn on the left blinker switch, I still get a blink and click from the left turn signal indicator on the dash. When I turn on the right turn signal on with no blinkers plugged in, there is no blinking on the dash, and no click.

I will look over the wire again and see what I can find. Not like I have never missed anything before. I will also check the voltage when I buy another one... Thats what I get for lending tools to family...

Is it possible the right turn switch is dirty?

Dirty or broken. That would do it. Sorry, I thought you already checked the switch....

The blinker switch was dirty.

I did not think to look there first because when I took apart the push start button side it was very clean.

Thanks!
