......Doh! Stupid rear lights!
The lights I bought to replace the bezel didnt fit. OK, No worries, even though I cut a hole in the skin, I can patch that and then re-attach the light pots. Realised the pots for the cut side I poked back through the hole I made and are now on the INSIDE! DOH!
Drill out a couple of holes for the grommets and disconnect the pots. Take OUTSIDE and re-attach with wires fed through the two holes.
Check the lights work. No turn signals.
Re check the connections, all good. Still no turn signals.
Check the grnd, thats good, no turn signals.
Determine the wiring is not connected correctly, change the wiring. Yeah, I have turn signals, but only on left turn.
Take my handy dandy plugin tester and check the umbilical from the van, its OK.
Check the wiring in the plug from the trailer, it looks OK but I remade some of the connectors anyway. Still no turn signal.
Strip off the skin from the offending side and remake all connections. Nothing.
Back to the umbilical, push the tester back in, no turn signal showing. Jiggle the connector, on it comes. Plug in the trailer connector. I have turn signals.
Its only take all day to figure out the plugin on the van is on the fritz. I really need to get an electrical tester and learn how to use it. I am sure it could have saved me four hours or so.
DOH! DOH! DOH!
A wise man once told me he wanted to stay fit enough to run a marathon on his hundredth birthday. Another said he wanted to be shot by a jealous husband on his, I'm with the latter. God bless you Richard.
