Got the truck! (HELP)

Ok, so I am now an official PSD owner. I'm so excited! Having some minor problems though. The blinkers/taillights/flashers don't seem to work right. Fuses are all good. I can get the rear blinkers and tail lights to work, but the front right blinker doesn't. The flashers don't work either. Anyone have any input?? Trying to get the beast inspected and it won't pass right now. Thanks! :Thumbup:

Diffently check bulbs up front you said you got rear working,if half the bulbs are bad the flasher unit will be slow it needs all amperage draw to work properly.The emergency flasher unit is on backside of fuse block turn signal towards interior of truck.double check fuses the turn and parking lights use seperate fuses

If any of the problems are sporadic or have changed as you have worked on it then, it is a grounding problem. If your truck is from the North or upper midwest and been driven on those salty roads, clean all your ground connections.

it could be your turn signal switch. I think the same flasher works the fron and rear blinkers so if they are working in the back that shouldn't be your problem. the front and rear blinkers are seperated out in the turn signal switch because the brake lights use the same wires abd bulbs as the rear blinkers. find your switch and use a test light to check for power at the wires. while the turn signals are on you should have three wires blinking the one comming from the flasher, one goes to the rear and one to the front if you only have 2 your switch is bad.

Thanks for all the replies. I did check the bulbs, they seem to be fine, and all work sometimes. I also replaced the flasher relay, and checked all the fuses. I didn't check the ground though, where might that be? Can't seem to find it, lol. Thanks guys!
