Question about 1988 Saab 900
My saab has been doing some strange things lately. I had an electrical short that was draining the battery. I found this and solved that problem but now my blinkers are sporadic. Every day it is getting worse. They work and then do not work. Most of the time they are not working. The passenger side will stay on and the driver side will not light at all. I have tried the fuses and all looks good. I was thinking this may be a "blinker fuse" but I dont know how to check that or if this is the problem. Any help would be great!
I am a newby owner of an '88 and pretty mechanically inclined but am learning Saab's have certain electrical issues and on many of the forums I have read, call them Saab Electrical Gremlins. You know how some tail light bulbs have 2 filaments or one? Well, you need to go all around to your exterior lights and make sure the right bulb s there. In a fix someone may have placed a double filament bulb on one side where it should be one, like the tail lights/brake lights. For some reason the wrong bulb in wrong place (although bulb fits, wrong still) can even cause a non-starting situation. Also, while going around, take some steel wool and abraid the bottoms of bulbs and the metal it makes contact with...hope this helps.
