1991 Bluebird TC2000 turn signal switch

My turn signal switch on the column with all wires disconnected shows continuity between all 3 wires (flasher, left and right) regardless of the position of the switch. Anyone had one of these apart before or a heads up on what you will find after you remove the steering wheel. Just trying to see if I should spend the time and money to source and purchase a new switch when the problem might be a screw fell out Thanks JD

I believe it should be a common and 2 switched outputs. SPDT configuration. Power comes from a fused, ignition on, source, through the flasher and then out to either left or right. That's how I've wired street rods in the past. Simple circuit.

If your switch also has an emergency flasher then all 3 would be connected if it's activated

Never had that apart but itís likely itís bad wires to the switch as much as a bad switch if the switch feels good when you move it up and down, so you may want to take it all apart before buying anything if youíre decent with a soldering iron. Good luck with that one, it doesnít sound fun!

Thanks for your reply Have not even looked to see if their is a an emergency flasher switch. We are neighbors . I live downtown HB. I beat you out the door, retired as a special skills electrician (building automation) 2 years ago.Will look this morning for a 4 way flasher switch.

Thanks, more worried about getting the steering wheel of than the switch. Soldering is no problem more worried about a hard to find switch.

Amazon will have something close to it. Now would be a good time to put on a fancy steering wheel too. I've had pretty good results just typing what you're looking for in the address bar, especially when it may be obsolete and/or out of production
Good luck
