    passenger signal light problem

    Hi, I have a problem with my passenger front turn signal light, I checked the wire terminal and only gets 5.40 volts instead of the 12 volt, so thats not enought for the bulb to turn on, I guess it has something making ground somewhere but could't find it. Does any body has a wire diagram for the signal lights? Thanks for any info.

    There is a sticky at the top of this forum where you can download the shop manual. There are wire diagrams in it.

    Your problem might be the combination switch (turn signal/headlight switch) If you have an ohm meter, unplug the connectors, with the turn switch in left position there should be full continuity between the Green/red wire and the Green/blue wire.

    It's the one in the fender behind the parking light, and the main problem is that I don't know the wire color for that light.

    ..that's the side marker, mine doesn't work either, is on when is supposed to flash! Wire color is G/R. The bad news is, it goes to "Integrated Control Unit", the black box under ashtray. Never opened that one but i may have to sometime..

    Today, i opened up the black box, a bunch of transistors, resistors, one IC and the beeper. Nothing unusual, tested the transistors which drive the side-markers, were good! Put it back again, side-markers start working again (the right one had problems).
    Guess bad contacts @ connector!
