    My '81 Conquista came with cruise control, no longer relevant. Wiper is on the dash, not on this lever.

    This is just to save someone else some valuable time. Problem: Turn Signals don’t work. I bought an 86 el camino a few months ago. I have had an ongoing problem with the turn signals. They don’t work at all. Tried the Hazard lights and they worked so it was not the bulbs. I finally...

    New forum member who just bought a '78 El Camino for my son. I'm trying to figure out a problem so we can get it inspected and road-worthy. The issue is that whenever we put on a left turn signal, both rear lights flash. However, when we put on the right turn signal, everything works as...
