flasher unit for 1971 Alfa Spider (USA)
This thread helped me locate the flasher unit on my '71 Spider. Unlike the photos I've seen of other flashers online, mine is rectangular and narrow. I'm uploading pics that show its location between the main fuse box and the steering column, as well as pics that show the wiring of the pins, the outside of the box (with its product info), and the disassembled box.
I think I need to replace my flasher, but I cannot find this unit online (I have searched Centerline and ClassicAlfa and Ebay). It is also unclear to me what other type of flasher would be a suitable replacement. Does anyone know?
Second issue is that my flasher doesn't blink anymore. My car battery popped and I lost almost all electrics (no running lights, no flashers or hazards, no reverse lights... but headlights still work, brake lights still work, license plate lights still work, some dash lights still work). Of course I replaced the battery, but that didn't help with the lights. Replacing all the fuses in the fuse box and also replacing fried bulbs also didn't restore the lights, so I think there must be other problems caused by the blown battery. But I don't know what those would be or how to check for them. Any thoughts?
