Ok, my turn signal indicators on the dash have quit, first the right, then the left.  Signals on all four corners still work.  Emergency flashers work on all four corners.  Brake, tail and markers work.  All other functions on dash (nite lights, high beam, brake) work.  Replaced all bulbs about two or three years ago.

I seem to have picked up a slight vibration around 75 - 80 but it settles out above 85.

I guess it's possible that the bulbs in the dash failed one after the other but would have thought the other dash lights would have failed as well.

Thoughts?  I searched other threads but didn't find any thing like this.

I'm betting it is the lights in the dash on the turn signals.  When you dig out your dash I would replace all of them at the same time as it is a pain to take it out.  Does anyone know if the 80 is the same setup as my 82?  The ground from both bulb is the same so if one stopped working before the other it would not be a ground problem. 

Most local parts store wanted $2.78 for a pair, I look at ordering some from the net.  I was disappointed in that I could not find any that the price difference would make it worth while ordering them. 

Then I stumbled on to this site http://www.memotronics.com .

They are an electronic geek parts store that carries automotive lights.  The 194 lights used in the dash are only $.23 with brand name  GE for only $.44.   Shipping is reasonable also and because lights do not weight a lot they mail them first class most of the time. 

That means you will get them in 3 – 4 days.

Does the 80 have the printed circuit like my 79? I had the same issue after changing the bulbs and all it was , was a little bit of adjustment on the PC and the prongs on the bulb socket to make better and strong contacts...

Could definitely be a bad connection to the PC tape. Not likely that both bulbs would go out, but possible. Either way, the problem is in the dash, so...out she comes. The bulbs could also have come loose from the holders enough to cause it.

What kind o vibration ya got?

I have replaced the PC tape on the gauge pack but not the dash.  Joel is right!  Out she comes.

Have to wait till next weekend though.  Brewing an American Creme Ale this weekend.

If I could get away I'd love to take her up the east coast highway.  If you guys get down here let me know in advance and we'll see if there isn't some around.
