Anything else we need to know???

 

 

 

Turn the 4 way all the way OFF. Turn key on and signal a turn. Now move the 4 way switch slightly towards the ON position. When the turn signal starts working... stop.

 

 

 

The  720 switch disconnects the turn signals when the switch is in the 4 way position. When you turn it off the switch tends to travel too far and goes past the connection and they stay off.

 

If you get the turn signal working, switch the flasher unit with the 4 way flasher unit. If the 4 ways start working the flasher unit was bad, just replace. If 4 ways still don't work probably the fuse.

Side marker lights (front amber and red tear) come on with the dash lights, the license light, the rear tail lights and the front amber running lights in the bumper. 

 

 

Get your signal working?

OK I'm at home now....

 

 

Did you ....

 

 

 

 

Turn the 4 way all the way OFF. Turn key on and signal a turn. Now move the 4 way switch slightly towards the ON position. When the turn signal starts working... stop.

 

 

 
The 4 way and the turn signals are both wired into the 4 way switch. If you were messing around with it, I would start my search there. It could be as simple as not plugging it in.

 

 

 IF the 4 way switch is working properly, (don't assume) then....
 
 
Signal
When you turn the key on do the red oil and charge lights come on? If yes then the fuse for the signals is ok. This brings us back to a faulty 4 way switch or the flasher unit. Other than the turn signal switch itself, which can get dirty inside. If this does not get the turn signals working we'll have to look at the turn signal switch.
 
4 Way
Do your brake lights work? If they do, the fuse for the 4 ways is OK. This brings us back to a faulty 4 way switch or the flasher unit.
