    turn signal question

    my right flush mount turn signal burned out and its a pain trying to find a bulb.... imperial told me to go to NAPA to get the blub cause they were out(those imperial guys are great by the way) and the parts person gave me a blub that looks like the same one i have, dual filament dual contacts, but the wattage is different. the replacement blub is 12v20/5w and the blub that was in there is 12v23/8w.... after replacement it seems to be working but just that on the dash that right turn arrow is really dim... is there going to be any problems?

    The bulb is wrong. the speed of turn signal relays and their indicators is base on electrical load. ie a higher wattage bulb draws more load from the battery/charging system than a low wattage one. Overall load determines the Rate of flashing, and the brightness of the indicator output. Put the correct bulb in and all will be well.
