As I mentioned before I know just enough about wiring to be dangerous... I replaced the flasher unit with one I got from an automotive store (Canadian tire)
The original says 552 12V Wagner.
I got a 552 12V Tridon, labeled Standard Flasher, 2 terminal, up to 3 lamps turn signal
up to 6 lamps hazard warning.
So I attach the new unit and get the left signals to flash correctly. but when I switch it to the right the signals don't flash but the front and tail light begin to flash like a hazard light.
Actually a cool effect. I bet if I kept it like this people would finally notice me and stop trying to run me over. Doubt it.
So I figured I hooked it up incorrectly and switch the wires. Same thing left hand signals work right ones dont and headlight flashes instead.
Ok so now what. did I get the wrong kind of flasher unit or is it something else?
