I have e-mailed Stu from Wing World on this and got a response. I was just wondering if anyone has seen this before or were is a good place to start. Here goes.



Front turn signals. My problem is I thought I had a burnt bulb. Blinker would work but driving light not. Replaced the bulb/ not the prob. While flipping switches noticed turning on the right blinker(thats the side the driving light was not working)the blinker was on, cansel turn and right driving light is on but left one is off. Turn on left blinker, right driving light stays on. Cancel turn and left drive light comes on and right goes off. Stu says the turn signals are grounding through the driving lights.



Has anybody seen this before?



Iremeber reading somewhere that there is a fix to turn the amber driving lights off all togather. This is done for safetyas then the only amber lights visible are for turning.



Thanks to all. Great forum. Good reading.:waving:

If I understand you correctly you mean the marker lights that are in the turn signal lights I think you have a problem in the switch. The marker light is supposed to go off when the turn signal is on. The right one going off when the left turn is canceled tells me the switch is the problem.
How would turning off the marker lights be considered for safety, seems contradictory to me.

Sounds like it could be a grounding problem. There is a Blue 22-pin connector under the seat (left rear corner). Unplug that connector and check the contacts to see if they are clean, not bent, not loose etc. There is a ground wire that runs through that connector. I know of a case recently where turn signal indicator lights (on the dash) and other lights were acting funny and the problem was the ground wire in that connector.
