I cant find one in my car but must be looking in the wrong spot. Can anyone provide a picture of where the flasher goes? Is it round or square and does it snap in place or is it screwed or bolted in? What side of the column is it on?

As big as this car is it sure is crowded under that dash.


Don't have working turn signals. I've made sure all the bulbs work and so now want to try a new flasher.

I found it. Was very difficult to find but finally did. This is what it looks like. Couldn't get a picture until I got it out.

If you ever want to try your hand at using LED's , or possibly to light up both rear lights at the same time, I recommend that you get a digital flasher.

I did get am EL 12 flasher for it today which is elcetronic. Does it cause problems using the original flasher and two lights coming on in the back for brakes or signal? My lights are already wired so that tops and bottom come on. Not sure that I will leave it that way though. Maybe that is contributing to the gremlins I'm seeing.

It does seem a bit strange to only have those tops likes on at night (unless signaling or braking).

Sure. My original thread about it has a lot of false starts and trial & error on it, and I don't really explain well what I did. But this later thread shows it in more detail without the trial & error.
