Post 1968 firebird turn signal

Can anyone help me find a diagram for an electrical system for a 1968 firebird. My problem is that my left rear turn signal doesn't work and i'm not getting charge to the bulb or the fuse for the left rear turn signal, but the right one works fine. Also, the front left turn signal blinks quickly. I would really appreciate any help.

Try a Haynes or Chilton repair manual for your year of car. I have on for my 1991 Camaro and it has the electric diagrams.

ok this is an easy one,if r/side works fine and l/side front flashes fast that means the switch is good,and the flasher is good,it flashes fast because there is not enough load on the system.remove the left side rocker kick pannel and trace the wire toward the rear it is broken between.look for swolen wires,if a wire got nicked water will get inside and corode the wire from the inside causing an open condition.good luck Scott

OK, SO IF I REPLACE MY TRUCK TAIL LIGHTS WITH THE L.E.D. KIND, WHICH SAY THEY HAVE A LESSER LOAD TO THEM THAN STOCK, DOES THIS MEAN THEY'LL BLINK FASTER? PS. CHILTON MANUALS HAVE CRAPPY ELEC. DIAGRAMS, GETTA HAYNES

Might check your light bulb socket. Sounds like it's not making contact to the bulb.

Have you checked and seen if you have brake lights on that side? And what about tail lights on that side?

Howdy all

Al here with AutoReWire.com in beautiful downtown Galt, CA.

2city has the right idea, but before I would tear into the rear harness I would test the switch in the column first. Use a test light and turn the turn signal switch to the left turn position. Find the plug on the column and probe the yellow wire in "M" location of the plug. If the test light does not light the problem is the turn signal switch in the column. If the light comes on the problem IS in your rear harness or at the taillight bulb. I would next go to the tail light harness and check it for power before I tear into the rear harness. If there is no power in the tail light harness then it is a good possibility that you will find an open spot in the rear harness under the carpet.

Good luck and let us know what you find.
