1971 emergency flasher not working (relay broken?)
#1
Howdy,
 
An other thread I asked what this button purpose is and was told that it was for emergency flasher.

My problem is that if I pull button..it will do nothing else than cancel normal flasher (that should be normal thing if emergency flasher is on?).
So could it be that my emergency flasher relay is broken and I can find it somewhere above glove box?

I found another thread that right relay would be 552 flasher..is that correct and should I replace normal flasher relay at same time to same flasher when I change this?
If that 552 is correct is this ok part?

Is there somewhere information how I can remove glove box?

Thx,

Iku64,

No! They are working fine. The 71-73 mustangs have two flashers. One for the standard turn signal and one for the emergency flashers. The emergency flasher has a higher rating due to all of the power it takes to make all of the lights flash. The standard flasher only has one duty at a time.

The emergency flasher will bypass and or cut off the standard turn signal flashers. this by design.
