Blinker Problem / Rover Service-- Dallas, TX

Anyone on here live in dallas and have a good rover guy?

Follow-up Post:

Here is my dilemma:

My blinkers arent working so I cant pass inspection.

Some diagnostics:

-Fuses are good- both in the cab and under the hood
-Flashers work
-Horn works
-High beams work

Any ideas?

Did you check the turn signal switch? Have access to a multimeter to see if it gets power? You could also get your truck inspected somewhere shady.

I'm guessing that it is the switch. It is just odd that the same switch controls the high beams and the horn- and both of those functions are working.

I may have to venture into the depths of the east side to get by this one...

Make sure the hazard switch is all the way out. Sometimes it sticks- it won't activate the flashers but the turn signals wont work either.

Maybe you guys will know the answer to this question too....

Is the Sylvania Xtravision H6024 an acceptable replacement headlight with factory wiring? Have to replace it to pass inspection and get some plates on this bad boy!

Is that a sealed beam? If not, strongly recommend up grading to some Hella H4 replacements, which use a commonly available halogen bulb. Drop in mod, NO wire splicing. Offically, they are not DOT approved, but I have never had any problem passing inspection. And I'm in Fort Worth.

That is what I used but both died fairly quickly. I went back to the normal sylvania halogens and they seem to last better.

Thumbs up

Also check the terminals and the bulb socket for corrosion. Use di-electric grease on all terminals and bulb sockets...

Good Luck...

Cheers...

Sorry if this is stating the complete obvious but be careful not to touch the Hella bulbs with your skin or anything oily during install.

Texmoto: For my customer's Rovers, I've been using a non-sealed beam headlamp such as a Hella, fitting any range of high wattage bulbs. But most importantly, I also fit a headlamp wiring harness from Painless Performance P/N 30815. One of your original headlamp connectors plugs in to the harness to trigger a pair of waterproof 40 amp relays controlling the high beam and low beam of each headlamp. This way, one avoids sending the load through the frail Genuine headlamp switch, and gives better brightness due to minimal resistance loss.
It's seamless- nothing changes in the way of on/off or high beam low beam swiitches, but you'll see better.
Trae has it on his D90, and it's been trouble free for years.
But to get through inspection, a halogen 6014/6024 will work.

I'll be honest- I touched all up on that bulb. I figured since it wasn't one of those little halogen bulbs it didnt matter. Should I take it back out and wipe it all down or just the front glass?

Thanks
