Electrical gurus?
 
I'm having trouble with getting all my rear lights working properly. tail lights both work, brake lights both work, 4 way flashers and brake lights work but my right turn signal won't flash. now the turn signal uses the same circuit as the brake and 4 ways right? Also the indicator light in the speedo flashes for the right turn when I turn it on but the rear light does not. Now I do know that the switch for the right turn does not latch on (I have to hold it up) Any ideas? I do have another column that the switch latches on but I'm not sure it's a direct swap as I took it out of a 84 and mine is a 79 Thanks in advance. John

Id check the bulb first and maybe swap it with the left one if it works correctly. Or you can test it with a meter and see if it flashes at the contact points on the light itself, but you will need someone to hold the lever up for you.

Yeah, I'll pull the bulb again but it works on both filaments for parking lights and 4 way flashers so? I'll give it a try. I've cleaned the ground once but I may do it again. Even thought about running a direct battery ground just hanging a wire down the outside for a test.

I've changed the flasher and the bulb now still the same. i guess I'll have to look at changing the switch, but the indicator in the speedo flashes. John
