I also checked the wiring going across the front bumper support for chafing and checked splice pack SP101 for corrosion. Everything looked ok there.

Can you ever get the headlights to flash with the headlights manually turned on?

At the LF blinker I assume its not getting power, not a ground issue to the bulb socket.

So far it is looking like a wire short although the KOEO and KOER issues is odd.

You want a excellent 5 star answer & I would like to be rated the same for providing it. Consider I don't know your skill level & I can't see, smell, hear, or touch the vehicle. It may take a few back and forth replies. Try your best to respond with good detail so I can do the same. I normally log in at 3pm and work late. A rating is required. Your rating me, what I type. I am not an employee of this website, nor have control over the fees or the time it took to get a response. If you rate negative or not at all you still paid, but I get nothing. I want you pleased with me and my efforts, so let me know if your experience here has come up short.

Thanks Chris
