Turn Signal

Just what I need is another issue to deal with. Today out of the blue the right turn will not flash. Everything flashes fine with the hazards on. It tries to flash once with a weak click but nothing and the lights do not even come on solid. So turn signal stalk or flasher ?

I looked into this the other day while debating if I should change all my bulbs to led. Tired of removing the taillights to change bulbs. Didn't do it yet....
But there is a rectangular little black module under dash sorta behind the cluster. And a new module is around 50 to 60 dollars. And the new ones are led compatible supposedly, so that you don't need resistors if you change to led bulbs.

I have been running all LED for years. That heavy duty flasher can only handle LED in the rear. So for the fronts you either use resistors or buy the LED bulbs that have them built in.

Looks like I need to order a flasher since local part stores do not want to carry any van parts. It is just getting stupid the lack of van parts in this state. Especially when you have the same parts that cover 10+ years worth of vans.

Usually my local stores can get parts in one day. Is it different where you're at?
What year is your van?
This works on vans to 2007

Parts store is 30 miles away so I will run in and grab something if I can get it today. If they have to order it I might as well do that myself and pay less, no 60 mile round trip, delivered to my house in 2 days with Amazon Prime.

Here we go again with screwing around chasing problems. Put a new flasher in and no change. Took the trailer wiring out of the loop and no change. Swapped bulbs around and no change.

What am I missing ?

I seem to recall a trick using a penny and dime (nickel?) wedged between the flasher button and the trim, forcing the button forward.
Try holding the flasher button forward, or sideways, while the offending turn signal is requested.

And the factory flasher module is an LM455, and the LED compatible is an LM487.

Never mind all of this since obviously I am totally useless. It was just a bad resistor. I really do deserve to be beaten by a pack of roadkill gophers.
