Hi!, I have a 1984 300 Turbo Diesel. Recently my turn signals began
working erratically. They would go into a 'fast blink' mode and then
quit entirely. I've changed the fuse (even though the old fuse looked
okay) and it would work for a moment and then demonstrate the same
Finally, they quit all together. I did some reseach and pulled the
hazard switch on the console and cleaned the connectors, they worked
again (for about five minutes) and now I can't get them to work at all
- tried changing the fuse, cleaning the contacts on the hazard
connector all to no avail.
I'm not sure if the problem is the hazard relay, or the turn signal
relay (which I cannot even find - but I know there is one since I can
find the part referenced in other places).
So my questions boil down to:
1. Where is the Turn Signal relay located on an 84 300 Turbo Diesel
(My Haynes book does not show)
2. Is it worth the effort to try to clean and reseat?
3. What should I change first? The hazard switch lists at about $28
and the turn signal relay at $45 and I am poor.
Appreciate any help I can get
