Flasher for turn signal? 1998 Intrigue

Hello Everyone,

We have a 1998 CC. The left turn signal on the toad did not work.
Lights on the coach did work. My hubby was testing something in the
right rear storage door (passengers side) and there was a spark and then
the turn signals stopped working on the coach and the brake lights don't
come on and hazard lights don't work..... At first he thought he blew
a fuse, but they were not blown. He thinks it could be a flasher or a
relay, but we cannot find either for the turn signals. Heck, we're not
even sure we know where the fuses are for them. They are supposed to
be wire no 53 and 54. Where the fuse is....we're not sure.....has this
happened to any of you folks. Thanks for your time. Elise and Dick

Most chassis fuses are in the front basement compartment driver side. Not sure on yours since you do not specify the model. On my rig I can open the fuse panel and see which fuses cause a led light to shine. If not shining then fuse is blown.

One line of fuses on that panel requires ignition in the on position to light up.

The flasher is there on mine also.

If you have the manual, there are wiring diagrams that show the location of components included in the manual. First locate the appropriate diagram, then the component. On mine the components are listed in a separate box on the diagram with locations.

I am no expert, but a flash while working on electrical stuff would not cause a ground to fail, I think. But if both the turn lights and brake lights are not working that could be a cause.

The flash symptom might indicate a dead short that still exists. Is there power to the fuses?

Also if the brake lights, rear turn signals, and front turn signals are not working and the fuses make no difference, it would seem to be a chassis (battery) power issue.

Do the headlights/tail lights or ignition/starter have power?

If not, the only things then I can think of would be: The starter battery disconnect switch and a loose or dirty battery connection. Neither of those would be a flash accompanied failure and the entire chassis electrical system would be dead.

Success !! Turns out it was the flasher. We found the fuses to the signals. We
removed the top of the dash (on the drivers side) and found the two inline fuses.
They were fine. We also found the fuse to the brake lights (fuse panel on lower fire wall left of driver). Two different issues. I can tell you for sure we know a whole lot more about the wiring on this coach than we did before. Thanks for all your help.
This forum is awesome.
Elise
