Turn Signals, Brake Lights, Relays, Fuses!!!
Had an issue about a year ago where Fuse 13 blew. ABS light comes on, can't shift from park, no brake lights, etc...
So yesterday it blew again. I knew what the problem was from last year so I put in another fuse and it too popped. Same issues as before. The problem is this time it continues to pop. I make it down the road for a ways and the ABS light flashes and again the fuse blew. Obviously there was something else wrong. I pulled the taillight covers and discovered some fresh wear on a wire. I corrected that issue and thought I found the problem. Well now I put the fuse back in and the brake lights work fine, but still no turn signals. Just got back from the parts store and put in the new relay. I drove to parts store without the flasher relay in place to try to rule that out. Applied brakes and they light up fine. I apply right turn signal and the left bulb stays lit constant. Applied left turn and the right bulb stays constant. Tried to repeat and now nothing but brake lights - turns don't work at the bulb or on teh dash! Like I blew the relay again. Not sure if its a fuse box issue or what.....any insight would be helpful!! I checked power at the flasher relay - have solid 12v at the red w/yellow (upper).,.,.have very weak power at the lower wire (white with red stripe)?? These belong to the relay in the back....not sure what that one is for.
