I have a 1970 Ghia that I am attempting to resurrect. When I pull the emergency flasher knob, the front lights blink as they should. The rears do not.
When I try either my left or right turn signals, neither work.
I installed a new relay. Using a tester, there is power to the new relay. Also there is blinking power to left and right terminals on the relay. But no lights blinking in the front or rear of the car on the left or right side. And my fuses appear good.
What should I look for or try next?

Check for voltage getting to the rear taillights. Clean and dielectric grease all connections from battery and back to the battery, including grounds.

How is it possible that my emergency blinkers work in the front but the turn signals donít?

Bad electrical connections do all sorts of weird stuff. With E-flasher system you are not having to go thru the signal switch itself.
