Hello I was working on this truck when I noticed the turn signal flasher was making the click sound like it was suppose to only the turn signal had not been engaged. I replaced the flasher thinking that was the problem. After I replaced it it stopped making the clicking sound but instead made a buzz noise now and now when I engage the left turn signal it blinks fast like a bulb is out. Is it possible there is another bad flasher or prolly not any help is appreciated.


thanks,
Eric

You may have a faulty turn signal switch. It is a multifunctional switch but has to be replaced as a unit.
I provided you with 3 wiring diagrams which is the exterior lights which has the turn sugnal circuit in it. You can lay them out left to right connecting the colored and numberd wires by using 1of1 first and so on. You may want to check grounds for corrosion and a tight fit as well

You probably got a wiring problem could be open/shorted wire from the flasher module to the lights or a bulb socket-inspect

You should be able to print them if you save them into a folder and make sure the file extension is. Jpeg. If that is still a problem try saving it as a bitmap, can't remember the extension. They are saved as Jpegs and you should be pulling them up as such and if I email them to you there won't be a difference in the fact that they will still be attached to a FTP/IP protocal just as they are here.
If you can open them, printing them shouldn't be an issue. Check the file extension and the drawing in file print preview and if you still have issues reply to this post and I will send them to you, but it won't be any different but I will try it. You never know.
Happy holidays from all of us at 2carpros.

I actually checked the pics here and it is HTTP protocal but it is a jpeg. The file extension is. Jpg and not. Jpeg, sorry about that. The dimensions should be 557x700 pixels. So try saving the file first and check dimensions and make sure to save it as a. Jpg file. Then see if it will print and check the preview first.
