rear turn signal stopped working, but only under load

Asked by Oct 10, 2016 at 05:30 PM about the 2001 Chevrolet S-10 2 Dr STD Standard Cab SB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

At least, that's how it started: Every time I put in a full load of wood chips, the
right rear turn signal would stop functioning, and when I emptied the bed, it
would work again. That kept up for a couple of months, and then one day it
stopped working and never started again. Any ideas of where to begin
looking?

weight compression? trace/inspect your wires under the bed/frame...

I agree. Most likely a wiring harness has been rubbing on something underneath when the truck is loaded and the bed is riding lower on the suspension. As Kelly said, inspect the wiring under the bed starting from the back and work your way forward. HTH. -Jim
