Lights and 4 ways are working on my 79 regal sport coupe but i have no turn signals. I checked my blinker relay and it's good, no power even reaching it after checking with a test light. Any ideas on what the problem is??

I'm tex. Live up in erie pa.
Just swapped my pick-up for a regal with a transplanted 305. It needs tlc, alot of interior and some body work. It was already gutted for floorpan replacement when i got it. Really excited about turning this into a street beast but as i said before, this electrical issue has me stumped.

Have you checked the harness going into the column itself? Making sure good contact? Make sure you have the correct bulbs in there too

I haven't checked the bulbs. I'm assuming they're Right if they work using the 4 ways. It must be a bad connection Somewhere, i was hoping it was something easy and i wouldn't have to tear my dash apart. Whoever swapped the motor left me with a bit of a mess in the wiring dept..lol

You'd be surprised what a wrong bulb will do.. I'm assuming you have checked with a light tester on the harness with outv the bulb?

Check the conector between the tail light & the front to rear harness. There could be corrosion there.
