I need help!

My turn signals won't work nor my brake lights! I fiddled around under the shifter trying to get my stereo to work and after I did that they all just stopped working. I went to the junkyard and switched the hazard switch and it still doesn't work. Also fuses number 1 and 4 ( hazard switch/ inst panel) keep blowing out. If I turn on the HZD Switch fuse 4 blows. I stuck but I know it has something to do with the hzd switch. Does anyone know which wires go into what in the hzd switch? I know the brown one is ground, and the red/white is power but I don't know where they would go could that be the problem? It looks something like this.


O O Power(red/white)


O (Brown) Ground

Something like that
this is on a 79 280se auto.

My Dad still has his 71 280SE, and he had to replace the turn signal stalk many years ago, but I don't think that is your problem. Although I resoved a similar situation on my 73 VW, and it WAS the turn signal stalk!

Try posting this in the "Vintage" forum...most of us here have "later" models, so not too familiar with the working of one like yours.

Check the ground connections, a couple of times.

I had a problem with a tail light in wy wifes Peugeot. I fixed it by unplugging it then plugging it back again. That didn't work the first half dozen times I did it though
