When turning left the front left lights don't flash but all the lights flash in the rear (left&right and mid). When turning left it will some time flash only twice and then stop. I have just replaced the electronic comb flasher it was working fine for a couple of hours.
Do you
have the same problem?

WHAT EXACTLY DID YOU REPLACE THE ELECTRONIC COMB FLASHER WITH?

I'M GUESSING YOU MEAN THE "INTEGRATED CIRCUIT COMBINATION FLASHER"?

DO YOU HAVE ANY AFTERMARKET BELLS AND WHISTLES HOOKED UP TO YOUR RIG?

Not sure what the exact name of the flasher it has 10 pins. It was the proper part. I recently installed a new stereo

Have you got any idea's? I have check all the bulbs and sockets. I hoping its not the flasher again. Is it possible that the multiswitch is causing this.

IN "PRODEMAND" (ONLINE MANUAL FOR MECHANICS)

THEY STATE IT MUST BE REPLACED AN INTEGRATED CIRCUIT COMBINATION FLASHER AND NOT THE REGULAR TYPE

WELL I'VE TRIED RESEARCHING "BOTH"

OTHER THAN A DEALER ITEM, I FOUND TWO THAT CLAIN TO BE "ELECTRONIC" ONE BEING $65 AND THE OTHER $99

DID YOU SPEND ANYWHERE CLOSE TO THIS ON THE ONE YOU OBTAINED? OR WAS IT SO MUCH CHEAPER?

I HAVE RECENTLY GOT TO USE "PRODEMAND", I HAVE NOT FIGURED OUT HOW TO COPY AND PASTE STUFF YET (SEEMS COMPLICATED)

I LOOKED OVER THE WIRING DIAGRAMS, THE IC FLASHER AND MULTIFUNCTION SWITCH COULD BE POSSIBILITIES

I SORTA GOT HUNG ON ANOTHER POSSIBILITY, THE GROUNDS, SOMETIMES THE WIRES BREAK AT CONNECTORS, OTHER TIMES THEY ARE TAKEN LOOSE AND OVERLOOKED WHEN THEY SHOULD BE RECONNECTED

EVEN OLDER VEHICLES WHICH LOSE GROUNDS TO LIGHTING, SEEK GROUND THRU THE WIRING OF ANOTHER LIGHT. LOTS OF TIMES THE LIGHT WILL WORK VERY DIMLY, MAKE THE OTHER LIGHT (THAT SHOULD NOT BE ON AT ALL) COME ON DIM, FLASH FASTER OR SLOWER THAN NORMAL

I WAS UNABLE TO FIND DIAGRAMS THAT GO WITH THIS, BUT I DID DO 2 SCREENSHOTS OF THE SAME CHART SHOWING LOCATIONS FOR THE GROUNDS, MAYBE IT WILL HELP

SEE MY 2 PICS BELOW

LOOKING AT THESE 1ST, BEFORE GOING WITH PURCHASING THE MULTIFUNCTION SWITCH, OR OTHER STUFF MIGHT SAVE $$$

EVEN A REALLY LONG WIRE WITH ALLIGATOR CLIPS ON EITHER END,

ONE TO THE NEG SIDE OF THE BATTERY, THE OTHER END CONNECTED TO THE GROUNDS AT THE LIGHT FIXTURES (WHICH MAY HAVE LOST GROUND)

THIS KINDA TEST MIGHT HELP FIGURE OUT WHERE GROUND HAS BEEN LOST
