Howdy:

We have no power to the turn signal sockets. The one of the three relay sockets is hot when the car is powered, and gives ~6V when connected to ground. The TWO pronged relay, when connected to the socket has ~1.6V across it turn signals on or off. It rattles when shaken.

Not knowing the history of upgrades, does it matter that its a two prong relay in a three pronged socket? Any ideas where to go from here?

Relay is a Tung-Sol 268 6v.

Thanks!

Does anyone have a better wiring diagram this one is too small for me to see.
We could figure it out if we had a diagram. Photo of the socket and the relay too. My A had a flasher that was just hanging under the dash, just two wires. The 6-volt flashers were universal and cheap, weren't they?
