When I had a problem with the turn signal on my '69 it turned out to be a dirty contact switch. I had to take apart the steeringwheel housing to get to it, but after scratching away the years of accumulated dirt, dust and grime with a screwdriver, the turn signal began working perfectly!

Check out my Sprite in my band's new video:

I thought I was going to go nuts- I traced every wire on my 63' +ive grounded sprite and the right hand side blinker only goes ON solid... the left hand side blinks nicely - QUESTION: could you visually see that the bulb was faulty? I changed the rear one and nothing happened.. I guess it must be the front? I will try that tonight and see how I go - great forum!

If you have a spare bulb that sounds like the best plan...just go around to each corner of the car and see if a new bulb makes a difference.

It's weird with these cars that sometimes a simple item (like a bulb) can end up with some unexpected symptoms--an old friend once gave me some great advice for these situations--"Common things occur commonly".

So--bulbs burn out, and being the most common failure--that's a great place to start the diagnosis. Good luck, and keep us posted! :)

Reminds me of some engine troubles long ago...traced down to a bad ground between the engine block and car (that's what the little woven strap is for...) :)

You know when you come down to it these cars are pretty simple, and it's the basics (like a bad ground) that go bad most often. Glad you found the Gremlin.... :)
