Taking flasher control away from the CPU is not difficult. I had to do this on an 81 a few weeks ago as flasher was burned out and not able to find a replacment CPU. On the 81 there were only two wires that were involved with flasher control. Both were at one end of the CPU connector. Green with White Stripe was power in from the turn signal switch and Green with Black stripe was output to the turn bulbs. I simply removed the wires from the connector. Soldered in two spade connectors to the wire ends and connected these two wires to a basic 2 pin flasher unit. Works like new!!

I have 85 rx7 12a engine carb getting spark and fuel,it will turn but it won't start what could it be.


It takes 3 things for a car to run... spark, fuel, and air. Sounds like you should be looking for a problem with the air, IF it is getting spark and fuel. Food for thought.

Tail lights wont come on and dash lights on 1985 Mazda RX7


On the RX7 it will most likely be a fuse. If you do not have a service manual refer to automd.com and search for the basic guide on replacing a fuse. Should you need specifications, head over to your local auto parts dealer for a book outlining the specifics on your fuse box or module.

How do I change the front side marker light bulbs?


Bi-Xenons - 6000K D1S
High Beams - Osram Nightbreakers H7
Fogs - PIAA H11 Yellow Ion
Cornering Lights - Osram Nightbreakers H3
Front Park Lights - High-Powered LEDs with built-in resistors
Front Signal Lights - Sylvania Silverstar 7507A ST (Silver Bluish but lights up Amber)
Front Sidemarkers - InviSilver W5W (Silver but lights up Amber)
Rear Signal Lights - P21W Stealth Bulbs (Silver but lights up Amber)
Reverse Lights - Sylvania Silverstar 7506ST or Error-Free LEDs
License Plate Lights - C5W Error-Free High-Powered LEDs
  • Turn the engine off and approach the side of the porsch with the burn-out side-marker light. If you are replacing both, start at either side; the replacement procedure is the same.
  • 2 Remove the screws from the plastic fender liner. Peel back the liner to access the area behind the fender.
  • 3 Reach your hand inside to gain access to the side-marker light's backing. Push the backing forward to release the side-marker lens; it's held in place by small clips.
  • 4 Grab the lens on the outer side and turn it over to access the back. Gently turn the bulb to release it from the plastic lens.
  • 5 Pull the bulb straight out to remove it from the electrical socket. Insert a new bulb, but do not touch the glass part of the bulb with your hand.
  • 6 Push the new bulb into the side-marker lens. Turn it clockwise to install it. Push the side-marker lens back into place. Apply gentle pressure to the lens to pop it back into its mount.
  • 7 Replace the screws along the edge of the fender liner.

    The turn signals will not work on my 1985 mazda rx7


    most likely the flasher unit is dead , it is a cheap , plug in part that is usually found in the fuse box. I am not familiar with rx7's but i am sure you can find a fuse box diagram on line somewhere.
