No headlights, turn signals and hazard flashers

2004 Georgie Boy Cruise Master 8.1 L Workhorse

With no on lights I have turn signals and hazard flashers.

With parking lights on, the parking lights work only, the two turn signal arrows and the bright light symbol show on the dash. Turn signals and hazard flashers do not work.

When the switch is turned to head lights, the same problems as above appear plus the head lights do not come on.

When the problem started, the head lamps were working, but soon started flashing off and on to the point they no longer came on.

Any ideas as to what the problem could be? Thanks for any assistance.

Realy sounds like a bad wiring ground situation; because the lights are not grounded they are cross feeding between circuits. With the headlights involved in the problem, I'd check the front of the coach first.

Agree.. Look for loose wires at the headlights.. could also be a bad headlight switch.

We have had a problem in the past with the tow trailer shorting out and blowing fuses, but we electrically disconnected the trailer to verify that it was not part of the problem. We will look for any loose connections.

My bet is on the headlight switch. Many have built-in breakers that will go bad.

Had the same issue on my '69 Cougar.

Vince you may have already lost the headlamp switch, the internal circuit breakers will only cycle so often. If you have a Bargman 7 pin trailer connector, you should open it up and inspect for internal corrosion there too, that would explain the turn signal indicators coming on, but not the high beam indicator and headlights no-op. Dig out your multi-meter and test light and good luck. As with tracking down any electrical issue, I'd rather be lucky than good!
