Conventional flashers flash because they're under load, heat up and the contacts snap open. They cool off and snap closed. This happens 60 to 90 times per minute. It's this opening and closing of the contacts that make the lights flash. The flasher I'm referring to looks like a little tin can and usually, in GMs, plugs directly into the fuse box. Since you have a '67 there is two. One for the turn signals and a second one for the 4 way hazard warning flashers. I suspect there's a special, possibly electronic, type of flasher that must be used with your new LEDs because they draw much less power than conventional bulbs. HTH. -Jim


Do you know where the second flasher is located

After looking very carefully at the wiring diagrams for your Nova in my '67 factory shop manual it appears that there is only one flasher for both the turn signals and the 4 way hazard warning flashers. I apologize for that!! Most GMs of this period used two. Looks like your car does not. However, the flasher is supposed to plug directly into the fuse box in the upper right corner of the fuse box. As I stated earlier it will look like a little metal can and can be removed by pulling straight out of the fuse box. HTH. -Jim


One other thing that may be causing confusion at the auto parts store. Your car is a Chevy II (Chevy two). The submodel is Nova. Nova did not become it's own model until '69 or '70. HTH. - Jim


I've tried two different flashers besides the original, a newer one from the parts store then one from classic industries. Neither one solved the problem I cant be the only person to buy these lights so their has to be a fix for this.
