Have you checked out the wiring in the front of your truck to see if anything is shorted out? and i am not sure but maybe try and disconnect the the turn signal switch and see if there is a issue there i am not to sure if that could cause an issue like you are experiencing. and maybe check out you flasher modules and see if they are jacked up.

If your relay is bad though generally it will not blow the fuse. Your turn signals will just quit. If you are blowing fuses every time you put one in then you most likely have a short to ground in your wiring somewhere, usually near one of the lightbulbs. You can try replacing the relay but if this doesn't fix your problem then start chasing the wiring.

According with the repair manual, 1986 Chrysler Fifth Avenue 5.2L 2BL 8cyl you have this devices:
- Turn signal, the Flasher is located in front seating area, driver side, driver side of steering column, behind dash, mounted on lower right corner of fuse block.
- Hazard lights, the Flasher is located front seating area, driver side, under dash, driver side of steering column, mounted in top row of fuse panel.

Hope helps with this.

Trunk release, power windows, turn signals, wipers, radio all stopped working at the same time on 86 chrysler fifth ave


Hi! This doesn't sound like a shorted wire, because a short would usually blow a fuse. Since you're having trouble with the starter, I'm thinking that the ignition switch needs replacement. Depending on the year/make/model, you may be able to change just the electrical part of the ignition switch.

2001 Explorer Sport ,Rear Driver Brake Light and Turn Sig. Broke


Rear lights are double filament bulbs one side for the lights other side for the brake/turn signals so it still may be a bulb. Do u have a test light or volt meter you can check to make sure u have power there when brakes or turn signals are activated. Or just try another bulb.

2002 dodge durango fuse keeps blowing for turning signals


You have a ground problem. Somewhere on the wiring, usually where there is a bind of many cables zip tied together heat from a hot lead wire has cause it to melt another wire which is grounding itself with your other wire causing your bulb to burn or a fuse to pop. Check your wiring...this is going to be pain staking but it will solve your issue. This is the cheapest way to troubleshoot the problem. If your turn signals are parallel to each other check the other bulb, maybe that could be your culprit as well. Change both light bulbs first before you check all the wiring. Cheapest first, let me know. Gabe
