Turn Signal/Flasher

Postby Dave2610D » Mon Jul 06, 2020 9:36 am

Re-posting (not sure if it went through)....Is it possible to change out my left/right turn signal switch and install a three position switch to create a turn signal/flasher type of set up and still use my two prong relay? Will I have to change that and if so what type or prong count.....do I have to do any other wiring? Thanks

The flasher is in the circuit before the switch so that should be just fine. It might flash faster when in the 'both' position but should work fine. The left/right/flasher switch should do all of the switching internally and should have 3 terminals just like the left/right switch. Did you have a switch in mind that you wanted to use?

I didn't have a switch picked out yet. The one I had was only a left/center off/right turn type switch. Arron, is their one you can suggest?

I really have not researched it but I know there are a lot of motorcycle turn/flasher switches on ebay that might work. I can't think of a time where I, personally, have ever needed turn signals on a tractor so I would probably just run the flashers off the original turn signal switch (tie both left & right together) or replace the turn signal switch with a regular toggle switch for the flashers. You could also hook up a toggle switch that would join the left & right together and then, in conjunction with the factory turn switch, give you a left, right, flash setup. Lots of options.
