35. ONE FRONT TURN SIGNAL DOES NOT WORK - CONTINUED.
Although KEY SWITCH must be on and battery ground cable connected to test electrical circuit
voltage, turn off KEY SWITCH and disconnect battery ground cable before doing resistance tests
or replacing parts. This will keep you from getting shocked and prevent damage to parts and
Scrape painted surfaces to bare metal before connecting test leads to ensure correct multimeter
Steps 6 thru 11 are typical for both left and right front turn signals.
Step 6.Test turn signal lamp (1) as follows: Using number one cross-tip screwdriver,
unscrew and take off eight screws (2). Take out amber lens (3) and red lens
(4). Push turn signal lamp (1) down and turn counterclockwise and release.
Take out turn signal lamp (1). Using multimeter, set to ohms scale and adjust to
0 ohms. Connect red test lead to contact (5) and black test lead to metal base
(6). Check for 0 ohms on multimeter. Disconnect test leads.
If multimeter reads no continuity, replace turn signal
lamp (1) (page
If multimeter reads 0 ohms, go to step 7.
Step 7.Using multimeter, set to ohms scale and adjust to 0 ohms. Connect red test lead
to lamp socket (7) and black test lead to wire terminal (8). Check for 0 ohms on
multimeter. Disconnect test leads.
If multimeter reads no continuity, replace front turn signal
(9) (page 2-664).
