Something strange going on - when the temperature is under about 45 degrees outside, one of the turn signals/parking lights (narrowed it down to the driver's side flare light) doesn't work. Headlights off and the turn signal works fine. I've tried replacing the bulb - no change. Any ideas on a next step? Maybe some dielectric grease?

I would definetly change the blinker fluid in there.... try using some of the new synthetic stuff - supposed to be the bomb. ??

Uh...er... anyways - sounds like a contact point issue if temperature affects it. Make sure the contact is good and clean and try some of the di-grease. Also move the plug around with your hand... hot and cold expansion/contraction sometimes can be solved by just moving the plug around a little bit.

Good luck with that thing - CXJ

Yup. Sounds like a hot expansion/cold contraction on or around the ground for that marker. Switching to the synthetic blinker fluid will help too. rofl

Thanks for the idea, gentlemen. At least it's nothing major. Confused
