    I was wondering if anyone has had the same issue. My 1968 sport fury left side turn signals stopped flashing the lights come on but will not flash. Emergency flashes work fine. I found a bad ground in the tailight which I repaired and replaced a tailight socket that looked a little beat up. Does anyone have any suggestions. Thank You Frank

    The first thing I would try is to replace the flasher it should be a different flasher than the emergency. The flasher is likely weak and the one side may have more resistance than the other side.

    Check all the bulbs, front,rear, dash. If anyone of them are bad they will not blink.
    If they all work then you may need to replace them all. I recently had an intermittent bulb.

    Thank You The part store I use a few days ago I went t get a flasher and they swore its a ground the flasher works for both sides it would not be the flasher. I said I would try it anyway and I felt like I was insulting them by not believing them. Needless to say the last three days I am removing the hundreds of miles of friction tape previous owner put on looking for a bad ground or wire. After you suggestion I take an old flasher out of a wiring harness I have. Gues what I got flashers I cannot thank you enough
    Thank You that was it
