Hi everyone, I am having serious problems with my signal lights, the have never worked but the hazard lights work. is there any way to test to see if the flasher canistor works, or do the turn signals run off the same flasher as the hazards?

Thanks
Jason

That WAS hard to resist ;)

You should have two separate but identical flashers, one for the emergency flashers (on 66-68 this will be up under the dash, probably on the left side of your steering column, and the other attached to the back of your instrument panel. These are interchangeable, as noted, but only cost several dollars at the most and are available at most autoparts shops. If you are in doubt, just buy a new one.

So you know you have one good flasher. Just swap them (as BornInAFord eluded to). If the problem switches to the other circuit, it's the flasher. If the problem stays the same, both flashers are fine. This test takes about 1 minute, requires no tools and no $ (not too often you get a test like that, huh? *LOL*)
