Turn Signals

When I signal left everything works fine. When I signal right it doesn't flash on the dash and nothing happens.

Any ideas?

It would be worth checking the relays, but also check the connections. Mine were doing something similar and I had to mess with the connections. Works fine now. Other than than you could just replace relays...

If mine did this, I would pull the lever and bypass the lever with a jump wire. If that does not work the switch is good. After that I would check the ground on the light.

Get a test light and check the hazard switch pin outs, if relay/fuse are already ruled out.

Water in the flasher????

Have fixed similar issues when rain water makes it's way into the flasher unit and prevents one of the circuits from operating. Pull the flasher and shake it, if you hear a slosh pry the cover off and drain the water. Blow it off with a hair dryer and try it again. About 50% of the time they work. Then look for the leak. This is usually a result of the vent being left open cause they all leak somewhere.

If not a water issue and the lights are grounded properly, then buy a new flasher. Don't recall the part number but generic ones that work just as well can be had at the local auto supply if you can find a counter chump that will take his nose out of the book and match up a part for a paying customer...

Have you tried the Toyota Dealer for a flasher?
Why would I go there?
You said you have a Land Cruiser...
L--A--N--D R--O--V--E--R !!!
Who makes it ?
Never Mind.

Does your hazard switch work? If so does it work all of the lights?

Flasher switch doesn't work. Does this mean the relay? Can I just get one at pep boys or is this a rover part.
