. I have my '68 running and am in the process of putting the wiring back in. I've encountered a very strange problem with the turn signals that makes absolutely no sense. The tail, marker and parking lights work fine, i.e. good grounds, bulbs properly phased in the sockets...etc. The brake lights work fine, as do the 4-way flashers. My problem is the turn signals don't work. There is no power going to the turn signals at all, yet when you move the lever to "temporary flash" with the brake lights on, the bulb on that side in the back will cancel out and you can manually flash it. But when you "click" the lever to full flash on either side, both brake lights go dark and the front lights are still completly dead. The turn indicator lights in the dash don't work, although the gas gauge registers right. However, the dash lights don't work.
The turn signal switch in the column was in perfect working order when I took the car apart, so I have no reason to believe it just went bad while the column was stored. Is it possible that the printed circuit in the dash pod has a short and that's preventing the turn signals and dash lights from working? It's a long shot, I know, but this makes no sense either. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
