    So.... you replaced every turn signal bulb before any flasher! you did confirm each bulb was correct for its socket, correct? Meaning a single filament bulb in a single filament socket, dual filament bulb in a dual filament socket.

    Yes I replaced bulbs before the flasher. Oh my was that the wrong thing to do? Yes I checked to make sure the correct bulb is in its corresponding socket.

    Went to the Cadillac today,( my father's house) still no luck, reevaluated each bulb and bulb housing. Everything is tight and working properly. Except the headlights. All fuses are good, is there any relays that correspond with the headlights? I know they are in working order. Thanks for the replays.

    So now your headlights are out too?
    When mine went out it was a fusible link that melted and caused them not to work. The link is within the wiring leading from the firewall to the radiator support. Which headlight(s) are out? Low beam/high beam/both? Each one is a different wire and has its own fusible link. I then replaced it with a inline fuse and no issues since.

    Thanks for that info 1980coupe, its like this when I pull the headlight knob, all of the lights work except the headlamps themselves. If I turn the high beams on, only the low beam headlamps work.

    It should be the other way, if you're turning high beams on yet your lows are coming on then basically you're actually turning high beams off. One way to be certain is to take a look at center of your dash, do you see a lil blue indicator? If so, that's saying your high beams are on, but are they really?

    It's starting to sound more like the high/low switch now. If it was on the floor it would be simple; yours is probably on the column and the switch is mounted on the column.

    Re: 1980 fleetwood with no turn signal

    Okay, so just to clarify here, from the pictures it looks like the typical parking lamp and low-beam lights are functioning. As 1980coupe stated, is there a blue light illuminated on the dash when you have the headlight knob pulled all the way out and the turn-signal high-beam stalk, pushed forward? Also, it appears that you have a few bulbs out in your parking lights, the outer ones on both sides. I believe that all of the front parking amber area should be illuminated, like this http://www.mcsmk8.com/80-BRHMB/HR/CARS-21.JPG

    Yes the blue "hi beam" light is illuminated on the dash. As far as the parking lights, they were illuminated also. But I will.check again.
