2004 Newmar Mountain Aire Workhorse Chassis


Hazard flasher problem
At the start of the trip Hazards working by end this is the scenario. Hazard button up (OFF) individual directionals don't work Hazard button down (hazards on) individual directionald work not designed to work that way. Hit the brake pedal flasher lights on the dash steady. Have replaced both flashers. Frustrating, I searched for a possible shorted wire with no luck.

HELP,THANKS

Likely a ground issue somewhere.
Or a short/issue with the 4ways or turn signal switch.

When it was the Chevy P30 chassis, the system went thru the Steering wheel switch assbly. If there was a problem with the switch or where the switch connected at the bottom of the inside steering column, you could get problems like you are having. Doug

On my older rig, it has Ford signal flasher unit. Before replacing the whole unit, I took it apart and all the little copper contacts inside needed to be cleaned up. After scraping or sanding the contacts, the signals and 4 way flasher worked like new. Just another thought.

I would verify that there is power to the turn signal circuit. Fuse?
With flashers on, the dash indicators will both be on steady. Normal for GM- Workhorse chassis.

I still don't understand why my individual blinkers work if I actually push the button down for hazards but do not work when button is up in the position they are supposed to work?

Power for turn signal is coming off the four-way flasher circuit.

After a lot of diagnoses I decided to replace the turn signal switch. It worked, problem solved. This is a lot of work so if your hand dey go for it if not call a professional. Thanks again for all the tips!
