Hi all, my wife has a 1979 mg midget that i can't get the turn signals to work even after replacing the T.S. switch and checking all the connections.
They worked once after installing the new T.S. switch and now nothing, 4 way flashers work along with all other lights and yes i did replace the flasher unit also for the turn signals.
Any ideas?
Thanks in advance,

Have you used a meter or test light to check the green wires going to the hazard switch for power?  Did you use a test light or meter to check the connections in the circuit?  Hazard switches are known to internally fail due to corrosion and prevent power from getting to the turn signal switch.  Many have had success disassembling the hazard switch, cleaning the contacts, and lubricating the contacts with dielectric grease.
