Been chasing hazard flasher problems on the ‘62 C-10 for a few weeks now. They would not work after plugging the steering column connector to the truck wiring harness. Turn signals were erratic, mostly working except for the L/F. Once in awhile the taillights would quit. I would mess with the connector and they might or might not come on. Hazards never. Out of nothing more than frustration I cut the connectors off both the column harness and the truck harness and hardwired the harnesses together. Installed a heavy duty flasher in the fuse block and a standard flasher in the hazard circuit. Everything works. I’m certainly not a wiring guru but by shear luck it worked and the truck didn’t burn down.🛠

Adapt and overcome. I wonder if the connectors were corroded or had broken wires?


Another quality post.

Rusty, the connector my son wired into the original truck harness was a used one I pulled out of a ‘70s Olds Cutlass. Been setting around for at least 10 years. Trying to save a buck didn’t work out this time.
