emergency blinkers

Asked by Oct 31, 2014 at 12:55 PM about the 1997 Dodge Ram 1500

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

When I used the right blinker the turn signal in truck works fine but  the emergency flashers go on.
When I turn on the head lights the turn signal stays on and the emergency flasher go on.
Appears there is a short in head light switch

Check and make sure the 4 way switch is turned off all the way and not stuck in a partial on as that can cause all kinds of light problems. Then check for bad grounds in the lighting system, then check for a cross circuit if the grounds ohm out properly.
