The hazards seem to be working properly. But I am not sure if the side markers are supposed to flash when hazards are on. Can someone confirm this?
When I switch the turn signal to left the green arrow flashes left but for some reason the dash lights flash as well. Also it seems as though all my lights flash as if I have hazards on.
When I switch my turn signal to the right both green arrows flash. The dash lights flash and the exterior lights flash as if hazards are on.
Note that it was behaving exactly the same before I replaced the turn signal switch.
Also note when I remove the dash light dimmer the dash lights stop flashing. But the exterior lights still behave the same.
Something has to be wired wrong but it is baffling me. Ive even pulled the headlight switch to make sure it wasnt interfering.
the side markers do not flash. Can't remember what thread I read that on, but they are not supposed to.
The emergency flasher switch is the same as the turn signal switch, you can swap them to test. I know it's too late to help now, but just FYI.
Biggest issue with those lights are grounds from the threads I have read. Check and clean all grounds involved.
