Turn Signal and Flasher Problem

This is what is happening: The right turn signal works normally. Left turn signal does not flash, but all bulbs light up. They stay lit when the ignition is turned off if the turn lever is not turned back to "off". Four way flasher does not work.

Got a new flasher module. Nothing changes. Checked all fuses, relays etc. Took the tow connection apart, and checked everything. Replaced the VIP module.

Anyone have a similar problem, or advice on things to check?
Unit is an 04 Ultimate Freedom on a Spartan chassis.
Thanks.

I might guess a bad ground somewhere in the left turn signal circuit.
Good luck.

Could be a relay. Do both hazards work?

The lights come on when I pull the hazard flasher, and they stay on. They do not blink on and off.

So...the only blinking thing that works properly is the right turn signal? If so. Listen to the clicking sound and find where it is coming from and locate the relay. Pull it out and get a new one. Worth a try...this was the fix for mine on a ford chasis. I know yours is on a completely different system, but id guess same idea? Good luck.

I already did this. Got a new one.
No change.

There is a disc inside the steering column that was loose on my Ultimate/Spartan chassis. My signals were very erratic.

Check to see if there is any water inside the turn signal bulb housing.

That happened to me and caused similar problems

I had a hunch that there were two flashers, but I can find only one.
Any ideas?

Flasher

The flashers were located in the electrical panel, in an outside bay, under the driver, some of the 12 v circuit breakers are on a panel. Behind that panel, in of a bunch of wires, at least 1 1/2 inches thick is where the flashers were. I had to read the writing on the wires and trace it down. It was almost like there were hidden on purpose. I would look close to where the first flasher was, We have the 2004 Vectra, a little different from your coach.

I changed the first flasher on the panel of course when the problem first happened. Not a fix.
I will look and try to find the second one.
