Re: 67-73 Cougar Sequential Turn Signal Trouble Shooting Thread

Typically, the symptom of "only the center light flashes" occurs when the emergency flasher relay has failed. It is located in the driver's side trunk well originally attached to the filler board under the trunk mat. The light blue wire that energizes this relay may have been cut. This would create ...
