Toad tail lite wiring

have separate single bulb in each toad tale lite powered by mh. On left side the turn signal will not work if running lites are on. Turn off the running lites and all is good. Have no problem on right side. Any ideas. Thanks

If that were the case, wouldn`t we need also need a diode on the right side? Right side works with the running lights on.

Has the left side ever worked, or is this a new installation? If new installation I would:

Agree with checking the left side ground first.

Check to make sure you have the correct bulb (same as the right side) in the left side.

Double check your wiring connections to the left side.

Check for a possible short in the left side turn signal hot wire (where it's possibly cut and grounding to a metal vehicle component).

I have some of this going on on my 1994 Monaco Signature. On the motorhome, the running lights and turn signals are somewhat related so that the ICC switch will operate.

I have a 5.6v signal when the running lights are on that I am chasing that I have not located yet.

The ground wire is common for other bulb functions from mh which work. Why does turn signal work except when running lites are on?

BarbandBob-

My experience, as of other posters here, is that these kind of "crossover" problems are most frequently caused by a poor, intermittent, or missing ground. After you've checked things (BobGed gave a great list with which to start), let us know the results.
