Jeep looks good.   I finally got the trade done for the vette and have the trailor and truck ticked away.  Now I can clean up the shop to get ready for the witer builds.  There is a lot of crap in both truck and trailor that will need to be cleaned up.

That truck is a 3500HD series "beast" it's a 15000 GVW truck, I-Beam axle, 10 bolt 19.5 wheels, 4 wheel disc brakes...a very different truck from the 1500, 2500 and 3500 series trucks. Basically a 4500 series truck with 1500 series body, the initial give away is the 6" filler panel between bumper/grill. The reason I started a forum just for them: 

www.3500HD.com

It's a little traffic forum but a good reference site for the "HD" trucks. Attached some pics of my 3500HD 135.5 wheelbase truck. 1994 (2500 cab on a 1995 chassis), TPI engine, 5 speed, recently finished the dump bed.

That grill looks great . 8)

New taillights are installed and L.R is working but the gremlins came back  >:( and blew another fuse when I switched to the right turn. I can hear a tiny click when I switched sides before it popped and the indicators dont work still.
I have 2 fuses (1 @ the box and one just before the signal) this time it was the  2nd.

I have another flasher I'll swap out but starting to think the switch itself may be it..
If I don't switch it fast enough, it pop's fuses. Seems like.
Does anyone make a better turn signal switch ? This is the speedway HD switch.

What it sounds like there's a short in the switch which occurs during the switching of the contacts in the switch, disconnect  the wires going to each tail light and remove the second fuse (make sure no voltage is present) take your ohm meter and connect it between what would be the 12v input to the switch and the right side output activate the switch check for continuity, if there remove the lead from the output and take it to a ground source  again activate the switch several times and watch your meter if you have continuity you've found your short its the switch. Make sure you do both outputs. This will only qualify the switch, If its in the wires to the tai lights your need to check them for a short. I had a similar problem in my steering column switch, when I would switch on the right turn signal the switch would short out against the column I put a piece of heavy tape between the switch and the inside of the column.  I hope I stated the correctly if not someone please correct me.

Both test's the meter pegged out when turning right.

Just for giggles I did the LR wire and same thing when I switched left. Hope I did this right ?  :o
Battery and taillights unplugged.


Looks like you did it right you found your problem :)

Your truck is nice. I have a fresh vorteque 454 in the one I got, and yes it's a beast of a truck.
