85 Turbo Z Turn Signals and Brake Lights Do Not Work

I just bought a 1985 Daytona Turbo Z and the Turn Signals and Brake Lights do not turn on. The headlights, High beams, and running lights work just fine.
Any and all help is appreciated.

Welcome To TD!!!

Start by verifying power is present in and out at all fuses.

Re: 85 Turbo Z Turn Signals and Brake Lights Do Not Work

does the dome light work?
dome light should be on the same fuse as the brakelights so a short to ground in the interior lighting could also cause the problem

Re: 85 Turbo Z Turn Signals and Brake Lights Do Not Work

So the dome light works and I was checking all of the fuses anyways (since I just bought it and I am trying to get a list of all of the repairs/replacements I need) and I had the accessories on when one of the fuel lines busted.
So I have to focus on that for now, but thank you for a warm welcome to TD and for helping me out. Oh and when I come back to this problem if I can't figure it out, should I create a new topic or just come back to this one?

Re: 85 Turbo Z Turn Signals and Brake Lights Do Not Work

So, I replaced the flasher for the turn signals and they work now. The brake lights also work but I'm not sure why, I haven't tried to fix it but they work now so I'm not questioning it. But now there are 2 other issues, the hazards do not work and neither does the horn. I haven't been able to look too deep into the problems yet but i know it is not the fuses. I may try and find a way to take the cover for the steering wheel off to trace the wire back for the hazards and also try and figure out how to get to the horn.

Re: 85 Turbo Z Turn Signals and Brake Lights Do Not Work

There are two separate flashers for the T/S and Hazards.

Before tearing into the column do you have power at the horn(s) on the DG/RD wire when the horn button is depressed?

No, 1990 AG/AJ (Daytona/Lebaron) use a single combo flasher.

Re: 85 Turbo Z Turn Signals and Brake Lights Do Not Work

The combo flasher is located behind the knee bolster on a bracket by the steering column.

Here are pics of the combo flasher.

Re: 85 Turbo Z Turn Signals and Brake Lights Do Not Work

Dealer Only, Discontinued.

The Chrysler Parts Catalog lists separate flashers and the combo flasher depending on the model of Daytona/Lebaron.

If you do have the Combo Flasher what is the part # on yours?
4504216 (90)
4504217 (90 Europe)
4373429 (91-94, although this is the unit in my car which is early production 90 (9/89).

Type Mopar #________ into eBay or the part # into https://www.rearcounter.com/
