    Turn signals not working - steering column wiring

    Well, interesting turn of events; After cleaning everything and then putting it back together, it works. Lol. Im still concerned that with the key off and the signal lever on the left or right position, the corresponding dash indicator illuminates dimly. The outside lights don’t come on, just...

    Turn signals not working - steering column wiring

    Something I just discovered by accident: When the key is off: if I rotate the switch to left or right, the dash signal indicator lights come on dimly and then if I put my test light on it the full signal function comes on. Maybe I just accidentally discover how to bypass the key power as there...

    Turn signals not working - steering column wiring

    So, I took apart my steering column to see if I could find any birds nest or piles of corrosion. Pretty clean in all and nothing painfully obvious. I think I did confirm that I have a ground problem in the area though as I was able to get proper functionality from the turn signals and hazards by...

    Turn signals not working - steering column wiring

    Yes sir, I’ve been working that list diligently. That’s where I found out about this tree. I was happy to find that mine has all the grounds noted as frequently missing. As mentioned, I’m into the steering column now.

    Turn signals not working - steering column wiring

    thank you. Yes, I’ve been through all the sockets. I replaced two so far that had the ground wires so bad they were rotted off in the socket. Replacing those cleared up my problem with the dash arrows staying on all the time. Yes, the original trailer plug is in tact. I’ve used it once or...

    Turn signals not working - steering column wiring

    Thanks for all the input. I have tried swapping the hazard flasher for the signal with no change. I bought a new flasher and installed it. No change. I’ve been through the very detailed ground checklist provided here on SS and cleaned up the ones that needed it and verified the truck has all of...

    Turn signals not working - steering column wiring

    That was my understanding too so I was pretty shocked (see what I did there) to find nothing attached to it. I would sure be in love to discover attaching a wire to it would solve my problem. Lol

    Turn signals not working - steering column wiring

    Good afternoon, I’m trying to iron out why my turn signals flash slowly or not at all. I’m working through identifying and cleaning up all the grounds in the truck (M1031) and one thing that kind of surprised me is that the ground tree above the e-brake has nothing in it beyond a single wire on...

    Passenger side fuel tank installation

    Could that Blazer tank fit between the frame rails in the stock spare tire location? 71 gallons total capacity?

    A basic plumbing and wiring drawing would be great, thanks.

    ISO Motor mount plate

    Thanks! I’m in WA but I already found one and am squared away with the repair. I don’t want to do it again though. If a couple hundred bucks on bracing bars will help ensure that then I’m going to try and get it done if I can get the parts. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    ISO Motor mount plate

    What are the chances of this type of damage being caused by fork lifting the trucks around a yard at auction?

    ISO Motor mount plate

    Its a GM diagram. Likely the civi version not the CUCV. To be honest, Im really confused. I called and talked to ORD and they said they dont run those on any of their trucks and they dont have any problems. No CUCV owner Ive talked to has them either. And yet, this cracked bell housing seems...

    ISO Motor mount plate

    Hey, my transmission shop says they won’t warranty transmission repairs without the factory brace bars that go from the NP205 to the bell housing and from the bell housing to the block/motor mounts. I’ve found a set of the brace bars but there is a steel plat that goes under the motor mount with...

    Passenger side fuel tank installation

    Thanks for that. Do you have any documentation on the switch and valve set up? My truck is actually a 1031 and I turned the box into a trailer and put a civi 454 bed on it with the passenger side fuel door.
