General Discussion / Re: Turn Signal not Working when Lights are On

Many grounds are located on the front fenders and radiator core support. Ideally, I would look at wiring diagrams and locations.

General Discussion / Turn Signal not Working when Lights are On
« Last post by may2022 on May 05, 2022, 12:18:50 PM »
I have a 93 TA. When my lights are off, my right rear turn signal works properly. When my lights are on, one bulb goes off and the other blinks. Help?

 I used it on a set of t top shades i found in a junk yard and got for $10. Lightly misted the carpet and used a few light coats working it in with a soft brush. They turned out fine but they are not as soft since the fabric has paint in it. Not sure I would dye carpet with it. Definitely try a very small area or scrap piece first.

Inside the lights or outside? If outside find a detailer in your area to clean and polish the lenses..
If inside remove the globes and use an air blower off your air compressor and blow them out.

Left to right it should be: 1156, 1157, 1157, 1156. Try flipping the bright oneÖyou CAN install these backwards it seems.
A lot of times when you get that issue one of the bulbs has a filament that is grounding out. Before you go nuts, with the lights on pull each bulb individually to see the others change at all. But Iíd definitel start with new bulbs and go from there. Cheap and easy.

Itís considered rare I have seen several over the years, especially at the Trans Am Nationals but they are few and far between.

If the motor still works and itís just the cable thatís bad, they can be rebuilt.
I know www.thirdgen.org has a long thread about them.

Without an overdrive, Iíd personally prefer a 3.23 or 2.93 and a slightly loose torque converter (something that stalls near but under 3000 rpm). The thing with an automatic is you can compensate for a taller final drive by running a higher stall and still get the same torque multiplication as a shorter final drive but retain sane highway RPMs. Especially if youíre running a lockup torque converter. A 3.42 or 3.73 would be best if you were running a 200-4R or a manual transmission.

Check eBay or 3rd gen parts pages on facebook. Its no longer made so you have to source one out from a junk yard car or off parts pages.

So you mean just the bottom part of the seat, and not the top and bottom like this?
