Unusual turn signal problem
Out of the four MBs I've owned, the 70 280SE, 76 300D, 78 240D and 64 190Dc, three or four of them have had this exact or very similar problem.
When using the turn signal lever, instead of blinking it will just be a solid "on" light. No problem with the lever itself, it stays up or down until the turn is complete, just the lights. Since this has happened to 75% or 100% of my old Benzes, I'm assuming it must be a common problem? (If you've ever read Greasy Rider, there is a funny bit about it on their 300D)
Another thing that happens, and only with my recently aquired 64, is that when I use the brakes, the right side blinker comes on (actual light and dash indicator)
Anyone have any insight on this?
