2007 F53 Fleetwood. I discovered this evening that when I push the turn signal forward, I have no bright lights. The little blue light on the dash does not come on either. However, if I pull the turn signal towards me, the bright lights come on and the little blue light on the dash comes on. Looking for ideas, switch, fuse,???

Switch failure or bad ground.

I would be suspect of the turn signal switch.

I would think everything after the switch would be the same for those two functions so the switch is the most likely culprit.

Switch is the culprit. They are a common failure point on cars and trucks as well

I agree with the switch diagnosis.

Thanks for the suggestions. However, the obvious solution is to turn the headlight switch all the way to the right. Boy, it's tough getting old. ????

Been there, done that!

Seems I'm not alone.

We need these easy fixes from time to time.
To keep us going.
