I just got a 1978 280z and the turn signals don't presently work. Didn't dig in yet but the guy I got it from said that they are wired off the 4 ways. Is this going to be harder to fix than I thought?

Probably not but you're gonna have to follow the wiring to figure out what was done

The stock turn signals work through the hazard light switch if it's corroded, broke, or disconnected they won't work. It shouldn't be hard at all xenons30.com has wiring diagrams.

Slamming a car to the ground and putting stupid wheels on it is like spandex on Rosie O'Donnell. You go ahead and get all excited about that spandex if that floats your boat. All I see are cankles.

Hopefully everything else works like your dash lights, head lights and tail lights, cause that is much more of a pain to fix.

Do they not work on the dash? Are you getting them to work outside the car? I know that for a while I thought my left side wasn't working but Outside the car it was and all that was wrong was that the bulb had fallen out of the back of the Tach.

Also another thing to try is make sure you have the right style lights in the bulb holders. Mine had issues because I put the wrong ones in and it melted a bit of plastic around the contacts.

Just a quick tip, when I first got my Z it had all sorts of problems like this. 85%+ of the problems were fixed by sanding down the contacts on the fuse box.
