Newbie. Owned my Cyclone for 4 years. Works great. But a couple months ago some of the flashers stopped working. I have run the Lamp Test and the Coil Test. Looking at the manual I can't determine what I can do to fix these flashers. I tested all the fuses for continuity. All passed. I also swapped out known working lamps to the non-working and still no joy. From what I can see these are the flashers that are not working:
The 4 gate lane guide flashers
07C #89 Flashlamp Cyclone (pf) & R Eye (bb)
Flasher on 17 AE-23-800 Left Jet Bumper
Flasher on 19 AE-23-800 Right Jet Bumper
Flasher on 17 AE-23-800 Bottom Jet Bumper

Correct me if I am wrong but I believe that the Coil Test would test all these flashers.

Any guidance on ways to additionally diagnosis that would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!

This is a flasher.

Flasher on 19 AE-23-800 Right Jet Bumper
Flasher on 17 AE-23-800 Bottom Jet Bumper

These are not flashers but pop coils.

I would start by checking for power at the flasher bulbs that don't work. This power wire usually orange is jumpered from bulb to bulb and if there is a break somewhere then a group of bulbs maybe affected.
If the bulbs have power, then I would look at the resistors on the inner connect board. But since there a 4 bulbs out this would mean the 4 resistors have gone bad. I would think that a broken power wire is more likely.

Ok. Thanks for the clarification. I will test for power and backtrack to a break. Thank you!
