2007 Holiday Rambler Admiral turn camera

It's been intermittent, but now more constant. When I turn on the headlights, or parking lights (only) the left side view camera turns on, and "left blinker" light comes on in dash. Noticed the exterior (left front) light does not come on. Changed the bulb. Not fixed. Noticed wire splice and intermittent function of light. I can wiggle the wire to get the light ON, but it usually does not stay on. I'm thinking this is the cause of the camera problem and looking to replace the blinker/parking light socket as long as I'm going through the trouble to fix the wires. Any idea where I can find this light socket? It's not been easy. I can get the bulb, but haven't found the right socket.

Any help is appreciated.

It sounds like you have a bad ground, and it's feeding back, turning the camera on.

Check and clean all the grounds. Also, you can just remove the signal lights front and back, and check it again. No feedback then.

I thank you for your comments. i too believe there is a stray ground suspected to be in a wire splice to that light socket. It would resolve a lot of guessing if I could replace the entire light socket with a new one while my head is "up the dash" (under the wheel well). Do you know where I can find this light socket?

I don't know where you can get the light socket, but usually you can clean them up good enough to make them work.

After you get it cleaned up, put some dielectric grease on to protect it in the future.
