got a gremlin in my turn signals and emergency flashers....they work and then they don't, they turn on but don't flash/blink...loose connection maybe....where is the turn signal "blinker thing" on a 71 mustang...my book says late models are behind the glove box and behind the dash, which is it?...thanks for any help

That would be a malfunctioning turn signal can. I *believe* the flasher is on the drivers side by the fuse panel in a '71 but not sure.

I think there are two "cans". One behind the glove box, and on under the dash above the gas pedal.(sorta kinda) One is for turn signals, and one is for flashers, I don't have my books in front of me so I'm doing this from memory. They shouldn't both go bad at the same time. Check for a burned out bulb. Also turn the key on but don't start the car, turn on your bliker/or hasard flasher, and listen for the "can". you can usualy hear it.And or feel it if you hold the can. Hope this helps.

thanks...I found both...the emergency flasher "can" is taped to the wires above the fuse box....the turn signal flasher is above the glove box under the dash...it is glass with diodes and wires and complicated stuff in it...appears mechanical though as you can see the "metal thing" actually switching...appears to work when I sit it upright! will wait to see if it continues to function...thanks again for your help
