Thread revival:
I had this problem again, so a search turned up my old thread. Turned out to be the firewall connector under the dash had backed out. Snugging the connection got the park / turn signal lights working again.
Glad it was not the turn signal switch as Phil said.
Funny to be going back around again on previous problems lol

This why I'm thinking I'm going to put the locking connectors on my harness. The regular connectors rarely cause a problem but the locking ones only cost a few more cents.

But if connecting to an old harness there would not be the latching mechanism .
I am going to try to convert some connectors, but those in that area are hard to get to lol

The hardest part about changing them is getting to them. For the engine I would just pull it out in to the engine bay. Once that is done you can pull the dash down where you can get at it on your back of course.
