'75 Cordoba.
The turn signal lite on the drivers side front fender lites up under hard acceleration.
I have cleaned all the grounds visible under hood.
Gas gauge also does not work, but I'm thinking it was the ground or sender at the tank.
Thinking it is not the issue I have not looked at that yet.
Not sure where to go next?
Gauge cluster ground?

Might not be a problem, I had mopars in the past that had a vacuum operated switch that would illuminate the fender turn signal when vacuum dropped. It indicated you were wasting fuel.

Thanx. up
That is interesting.
Kind of like the vacuum operated power/economy gauge, huh?
Anyway to test and set my mind at ease?

Agree with that opinion, because the factory added that fuel minder to some models. Drivers side only.

Makes sense in a way.
It was 1975.

Here I'm trying to fix it. shruggy
2-Kool.
I never knew of such a thing.
I will now look at it as "POWER MODE!".
Thanx. up

When I worked in TV, the news director had a 75 Dodge Monaco that we got to pay off an advertising bill. It got passed down to one of the photographers who discovered that feature. He always drove the car trying to get the light on. He was averaging 9 mpg for his efforts. I always wondered what it would have done if he was trying to keep the light off.
The feature was in the owners manual but who reads those in a fleet setting?
