Hello everyone,
Short and simple question. Can somebody tell me the location of the relay for the turn signals and the hazard light?
This will save me much time in fishing around to replace them.
Of course i am open to any suggestions on making the fishing expedition that much more efficient.
Thanking everyone in advance for your responses.

It's a two part system. the circuit first goes thru the hazard switch and then to the relay up under dash drivers side. First make sure the hazard switch works, push it in and out a whole bunch of times and maybe clean with electrical cleaner.

looks like this

but these guys are idiots about what things are worth.

Hi Daniel,
How are you? I live in Windsor, Ontario. In the banana belt. Near the Detroit border.
I have been following your posts for many years with much pleasure.
I have recently purchased chassis number 1785. Like about one month ago. It took me 35 years to obtain one. LOL. Only 54 years of age now. Its a totally original 78,000 mile example. Far from perfect but we are making good progress on fixing and repairing and adding new parts where needed. Astral silver with black leather. Nothing unusual.
Sorry about my delay in responding back. Been on the road for the past few days.
The car is yet to be safetied and on the road but we are quite close. Need the drivers side window to function. The car came with 2 sets of Euro lights and a set of euro bumpers which i was most pleased.
Essentially another 6.9 saved, brought back to life and just can't wait to drive it.
Best regards,

Drivers window faults were common, the window frame bends as the glass gets grabbed by the sliding track, that in turn is caused by moisture getting down there and rusting the metal in the track, which expands. Once the windows start grabbing, the pot metal frame bends causing stripped gears etc etc. To fx it properly you need to remove the whole regualtor and sliding tracks and replace the whole lot.

PFQ,
I am just across the border about 25 minutes north of Detroit. Actual I am just between the Detroit and Sarnia crossings on Lake St Clair. If you ever make it across the border with your 6.9 give me a shout and we can meet up. I RARELY see 6.9s around here...

Thanks to this forum, I have developed a bit of a 6.9 addiction these past couple years.

Happy Motoring,

Jed

Hello sir,
I would be most pleased to meet you personally. In the process of doing the shake down on #1785.
Seems like it improves everytime i drive it. Not seeing any major issues. Logical after sitting for 7 years.It is all safetied and has been back on the road for about 2 weeks now.
I presume #94 to Sarnia is the freeway to take?
