Turn Signal Wiring

Problem is solved!  

A few years ago my turn signal / hazard combo relay went out.  I didn't have the cash for a high dollar relay like that so I opted for just a normal relay to run my turn signals.  Well, just so happens, when you push the hazard light button to "on", your turn signals won't work!!!  My son must have been playing in the car and pushed the button over.  The turn signals work perfectly now!  Kids!!!!  haha  

But for future reference, it does appear that a B13 signal/headlight stalk can be used on the S12.  It just needs to be re-pinned.

Give us details on the re-pinning.

So does the signal/headlight stalk look the same or different? Pics if different. I imagine it definitely looks *newer*, and that's something of an incentive right there to do the re-pinning.

Hella flush and all associates should be gunned down for brainwashing people into thinking a 225 and lots of camber is proper wheel fitment. THAT IS EASY, anyone can camber a skinny as tire till it dosnt rub. Now fitting an 11 with a 315 on stock fender with reasonable camber, that is fitment. And looks, and performs better than both.
i dont own a s12 at the moment but trying to acquire one to get rid of my s13 hatch

The only difference in the functionality of the units is the auto-cancelling function and wiring harness.  In order to get the cancelling to work, you would probably need to swap the steering wheel hub with the unit but it is not necessary for the operation of the turn signals.  You would just have to manually push/pull the turn signal arm back to the center position.

For the wiring, you would need to match up the corresponding wires because the harnesses are different between the S12 and B13.  The insides/guts of it look identical so splicing a B13 harness onto the S12 column wiring should be fairly straight forward.  

Assuming that this would work, I think that an even close match would be from a S13 style 240SX or a KA hardbody.  

I am going to pick up a 1989 240SX unit tonight and I will post back with more info.  This would be pretty cool for the S12 community if this would work.  I might have bright lights!! haha

Got to dredge this old topic up..

I'm having the same problem. Yesterday my turn signals were working fine, but today... No turn signals or hazard lights. The indicator lights on the dash won't come on, and the exterior lights are not flashing. Everything else is working perfectly. The really strange thing is that they began working again for about 5 minutes, then promptly went dead once again. So.. all the fuses seem fine. I guess it is something to do with the wiring. Maybe it's corroded or something. I'll have to get into the steering column it seems.    :glare:

Anyone learned any wisdom about this issue over the years?
