Why are my headlights flashing when I turn my right turn signal on?

Asked by Jun 08, 2014 at 02:16 PM about the 1978 Chevrolet Chevy Van

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

We have a 1978 Chevy g30 motorhome. Same front as a van. If I turn the right turn
signal on, the headlights will flash. If I turn the headlights on while the right turn signal is
on, they will flash from high to low.

Possibly loose ground or short in wire harness.

Yup, dandy is right, as usual. Start tracing wires from the headlights back. You'll most likely find a bare spot or a bad ground. HTH. -Jim
