73 Emergency Flasher Location ?
#1
Hi all,

I know this has to have been discussed before, and did a quick search, but couldn't find the info on the exact location for the emergency flasher. I know the regular turn signal flasher is behind/above the glove box cardboard liner, but where is the emergency flasher located ?

thanks

thanks all. i'm hoping to go searching for it this weekend.... I'm hoping that if I have trouble finding it, I can turn them on and listen to find where the click comes from.

Found them both. When I removed the glove box there was one just dangling on the left side,,, picture shows location, but I had already removed it before taking the pic.

This turned out to be the Emergency Flasher.

I had to turn on the turn signals in order to find that one. I had to remove a metal cover above the glove box to get to it. It was clipped into a holder top right above the opening. Here it is after i figured out that it just snaps in an/out.

I installed electronic flashers and LED bulbs all around...  They ALMOST work........here are the issues.

1. When I turn the parking lights or headlights on (knob out half way and all the way... The turn signal indicators in the dash come on...They do flash correctly when the turn signals are activated, but they do not go out unless I push the light knob all the way in Then everything works as it should.

2. When I have the parking lights or headlights on, the lights in the rear quarter panels both flash if either turn signal is activated.. This does not happen when the lights are off.

Any advice would be appreciated ?  But I can't think of anything that can be done, except to go back to the old bulbs/flasher or try a different model of electronic flasher.

Sounds strange. I would try isolating the problem. First by putting the stock bulbs back in the front and rear turn signal sockets and see if that clears up the problem. I am guessing based on the understanding that there is some kind of 12v back feed from the parking light (brown) wire thru the led bulb to the diectional wires (RH white/blue and LH green/white).

My guess is that you have a grounding issue on the rear lights, and you're getting feedback through the flasher circuit while the electrons are seeking a ground, illuminating the turn signal indicators on the way to a ground.

Grounding problems can create all kinds of weird issues, as the electrons follow paths of least resistance.
