I've got a '78 "510" (nee Nissan Violet) A10, and I'm trying to bring this puppy back to life. I'm getting really close, but I'm in a bit of a fight with the blinker system.
Like the title says, the Hazard lights, and the right blinker work as expected, but the left blinker (when indicated with the blinker stalk) doesn't blink.
Originally, I thought the blinkers didn't work at all...but found that if I jiggled the handle, they would, so I just got done tearing the steering column apart to find the little copper bit that connects to the rocker and makes contact with the solder points at the back of the wheel. It was properly disgusting. I cleaned it and the contacts up with a bit of sandpaper, and now the blinkers engage every time but the left blinker is still giving me some trouble.
I've heard around that hazard systems are redundant so that they ideally always work, so I'm not shocked that they are working...but I'm a bit surprised that the hazards would cause the left to blink, but the stalk wouldn't. Just how many blinker relays are in this thing anyway?
Anyway, any assistance you guys could provide would be majorly helpful. This is a relatively new car to me, so I don't really know my way around. Please be gentle.
