Re: Turn signal canceling cam
After installing the new turn signal switch from Dennis Carpenter which is new to their inventory, the lights still did not work. He then hooked up the old switch without installing it and everything worked for whatever reason, that part is a mystery unless some contacts got cleaned off. He then did the same with the new switch and it also worked. Discovered that as long as the new switch wasn't screwed down it worked. The plastic is thinner and more flexible than the original switch and tightening the screws down, not even tight, just snug it causes the plastic to flex and somehow causes a lack of connection within the switch. He also discovered that when the canceling cam was added it didn't allow the arm of the switch to go all the way into position to turn the turn signal on. In the end he reinstalled the old switch that started working again and just turn the signals off by hand. He is going to contact Dennis Carpenter about it since it is a new item and let him know what happened and maybe others might have the same issue. Either that or he got a bad one, hard to say really. But he is back in business with working lights again.
