    ok so I took the flasher relay out cleaned the points contacts and it still does same thing.   Makes one click sound when right turn on column lever and nothing to the left.

    So ive decided 100$ for a guess isn’t in my game plan.

    I want to wire turn signals like I did for my Baja bug.  I used an aftermarket column lever but I should be able to use the lever on column just wire it the way I would one of those aftermarket ones right?

    You don’t state the year of your donor vehicle so there may be a difference in the colour code but if the vehicle is a late 60s Beetle there should be a black and black/white wire connected to the signal switch that power the signal lights. Find the cable adapter (2) that connects the switch to the front/rear signal lights and flasher relay. Using a Volt/Ohm meter activate signal switch lever then check for voltage on the connectors. Once you have located the connector without voltage remove the wire connected to the signal switch lever. Having removed the lights and flasher from the circuit you can now verify whether there is voltage on the black or black/white wires coming from the switch. If no voltage found, given one signal light is good you know that that power is getting into the switch so only component left in circuit is momentary contact in signal switch. You can try to repair it or replace entire switch with after market one

    Well it’s titled as a 64.

    Im going to see what I can figure out like u said.

    It sounds like the contact in the big Lucas box initiates but it don’t click out ? and light in back don’t change.  I have park lights on thinking I can see it get brighter when I turn column lever right or left but I only get the clicking sound in the box when I move lever up n down to right turn. Left is like totally dead without sounds.

    I was trying to find out what that other relay is but the relay number just comes up as radio shack relay or vw relay can’t get particulars ya know?

    there was a indicator relay in diagram for that 33116 box but it just shows to initiate a light indicator in dash this thing has like 8 wires on it one not hooked up but as I said it’s got me stumped
