Washed the the car last weekend and now the RH turn signal doesn't work. The LH
is fine. What's interesting is the interior dash RH
indicator light is on when the parking lights are on. This feels and smells like
a short somewhere, but I can't put my finger on it.
That can also happen when your turn signal relay is going/gone bad...but
I'd check the bulb first...that's the most likely and cheapest thing to
PS: If you ever lose a bulb on the LEFT side, while you've got the
ass-end interior all pulled open, you might want to change ALL of the
lights...right side isn't as bad, but the left is a real pain...you'll wanna
do that side as rarely as humanly possible!
Hopefully if they ever do build another Camaro/Bird, they'll make those
bloody things a little easier to get at...
Check and clean the front turn signal sockets. You are getting feedback
through the right side socket which is making it glow with the parking
lights on. Used to happen all the time on my 84 T/A until I took a rifle
brush and cleaned up all the contacts.
Also, put some terminal contact grease in there as well after you clean it. It
will help repel the water out of there that causes corrosion.
