Front turn signal

I have recently changed front signal light bulbs at the shop. After that I constantly have the light failure bulb on instrument cluster lightening when I turn on the headlights at night. I am sure they messed up with turn signal bulbs although they work fine. Otherwise there is no failure in any bulbs and everything is working fine.

Does anyone now what kind of bulbs are used in front turn signal lights (the ones bellow bumper)?

Thanks,

Balsa

P.S. 1986 560sl.

They are the dual-filament type....21W and 5W bulb.
The 21 is turn indicator and the 5 is running light.
Are you getting a fast blink on the turn indicator or just the bulb out with headlights on? Sounds like the put in a single filament bulb.
The 21w are hard to find a auto stores - as they don't usually tell you the wattage of the bulbs - just that it is 12 volts......

I am in Europe and have Euro headlights on US 560sl. The turn indicators work fine...I beleive they put in a single filament bulb, or double filament bulb with different wattage.


Thanks for the info! I will inform on the solution.
