    '69 Camaro .... turn signals stopped working for both left and right side ..... all other lights work. That would be a switch or relay mounted near the fuse panel?

    Thanks

    You should be looking for a 1" diameter round silver fuse. It should be, if I remember, on the edge of the fuse block. If not there it would be hanging down under the left hand side of the dash......it's been awhile....

    I don't know how the 69 Camaro was put together, but on the 70 and later Camaro, there are two signal flasher units. The one on the fuse panel is for the 4 way hazard flashers. There is a second one mounted on a clip up under the dash near the steering column that does the turn signals. If the 69 is the same, this is the one you need to check out, not the one on the fuse panel.

    69 is the same.
    It is under the dash between the steering column and the radio.

    I just posted the same thing in the other turn signal thread :cool:

    Also check the turn signal fuse in the fuse block
    The second one up from the bottom on the right. 20 amp

    Hopefully your fuse block doesn't look like this

    I chased a intermittent turn signal problem for six months. Replaced flashers, wiring, etc. It turned out to be the fuse. The fuse contacts were rusted just enough to keep it from making good contact. Pull them and clean the contacts.
