Relay plate Relays
#1
Does anybody know exactly what relays are on the plate above the glove box? I painted this relay plate and now when I hit my brakes, all the lights in the dash go dim and there is a slow ticking coming from in the dash. Also my hazard lights dont work. I plan to clean the grounded areas on this plate, might that be the issue?

It all depends on what option your car has or had. This may help...

Regarding the grounds, yes, that may be the problem, not only the grounding of the plate, but each component on it grounding to the plate.

I use star type lock washers under the heads of bolts, screws, and/or nuts and between the device and the metal it is attached to for providing and maintaining good grounds.

UPDATE: I have now found that my new replacement turn signal switch is probably at fault, I removed my steering wheel and everything started working, with the exception that while my hazards are blinking, if I step on the brakes, the turn signal indicators stay on then I let off the brakes and they start blinking again, then while I was turning my hazards on and off, eventually they just wouldn't turn on any more. I think my new turn signal switch is bad. I have a no-tilt column and I think it was a Shee-Mar switch. Are there any GOOD replacement switches that I dont have to splice into the wire harness? Thanks!!
