1980 Fj40. My turn signals don't work. The hazards do work. The fuze is good and the wiring seems to be ok. The only thing I can think is the turn/hazard flasher is not working properly and I dont know why if the hazards are working. Any suggestions welcome. Thanks in advance!!!!!!!!!!!:confused: :confused:
I had a similar problem with my 76FJ. If the hazards are working, then the problem is not in the flasher switch. I found the problem in my rig to be the turn signal switch. The contacts had "carboned up" so much that they would not complete the circuit. I used an pencil eraser to clean them up and they worked OK for a while. I eventuall had to replace the turn signal switch. It's relatively easy and inexpensive to get to and replace. Check your Hanes or factory repair manual for details. Best of luck

:D I got it fixed. I couldn't get the wipers to work either so I decided to replace all the fuzes in the block and clean the connections. Well, to my amazement, the turn signals and the wipers now work. :doh: It's amazing how we create mountains out of mole hills. :eek:
