I need to check something out with all you 69/70 owners in regards to your 4 way flashers (Emergency Flashers). I recall my first 70 when I put the 4 ways on, the front and rear would flash at the same time and the side markers would be off a half beat....I hope that makes sense? In other words when the front and back were on, the sides were off and when the front and back were off, the side markers were on.

Now I ask this because the 70 I have now does not work that way. I am more inclined to believe my first 70 was right and this one is wrong but would like to hear how everyone else's behaves before I start digging deeper.

Thanks

Dale

Dale sorry to be so slow. Got all my catz apart it seems. My 70 I went to check it and dead battery dunno why as was no problem last time so I gotta job to do. 69 xr7 early production flashes so fast I can barely see the frt and rears and no side flash at all. I am sure its 70s with the three pin door jamb switch that flash offset which looks grreat and I am sure my 70 does that but I gotta charge a battery first looks like,so I'll hafta catzyalater on the light issue.

Thanks for the info guys....hey Gary, what I was looking for was when the Emergency Flasers are on what happens? Do the side markers flash on the offset delay to the front and rear lights?

Just curious if someone had done some creative wiring on mine or not as I really like the way it looks when they flash like that.

Thanks again for all the input....

Dale

Thanks Ray....I don't know how this other one of mine was hooked up or what was different about it but I really liked the way it flashed in an alternating sort of way. It was truly cool.
