Re: Turn signal indicator light


It occurs to me that one of the socket adapters that the bulb goes into might have a wider negative terminal

that would contact both of the negative contacts on the circuit board when it was inserted.  I haven't seen

such, but somehow the grounds (both of them) must get to the bulb.   Maybe an inspection of those adapters

would find one with a wider negative contact.  Good luck!

Just for grins, did you try using a different bulb?

I recently upgraded my dash indicator lights to LED. After doing so I
  only have the dash turn signal indicator flashing in one direction. If
  you take out the socket and turn it 180 degrees it will flash for the
  opposite direction. The socket has a (+)center contact for the bulb
  and the other contact is (-) for the metal case just like most other
  auto bulbs.
There are two printed leads going to the socket as you can see in the
  picture. When selecting L or R one or the other has power coming from
  the flasher. So where is it getting it's ground? I checked the parts
  manual and it only lists one part # for the socket. So I don't know
  how you can get (+) to the center bulb terminal for both
  directions. Obviously it worked before and I haven't done any rewiring
  of the lights, so I'm stumped.
