Since
the
turn signal relay is designed to operate
correctly only when two turn signals (one front and one
rear) and the turn signal indicator light are properly
connected in the circuit, trouble may result from a
burned out bulb, a bulb of incorrect wattage, loose
wiring, as well as from a defect in the relay itself.
In
general, if the trouble with the circuit is common to
both right and left turn signals, it is probably caused
by a defective turn signal relay, although
it
may be due
to a bad switch, wiring, or
battery.
If the trouble is
with only one side
-
either right or left
-
then the
relay
is not at fault since the same relay
is
used for both sides.
Turn signal trouble
(1 }Neither
right
nor left turn signals come on at all:
-Check
that
battery voltage is normal.
-Remove the right
side
cover.
-Unplug the brown lead and relay diode
from
the
relay, and use an ohmmeter to check that there is
continuity (close to
zero
ohms) between the relay
terminals.
If there is no ohmmeter reading, or if
there is several ohms resistance, replace the relay
with a new one.

-Disconnect the relay diode from the orange lead.
Setting an ohmmeter to the x 10
n
or x 100
n
range, check the resistance between both rectifier
leads.
The resistance should be low in one direction
and more than ten times as much in the other direc-
tion.
NOTE: The actual meter reading varies with the meter
used and with the individual rectifier, but, generally
speaking the lower reading should be within the first
third of the scale.
