    I have an 89 Western Star 4900 and cannot locate where the flasher is at. Any help would be great.

    Old time flashers used to be directly inside the unit with which you trigger the 4ways. I don't recall that far back but its to the left under the wheel.

    If you don't find it there, hunt down the main fuse and it should be near or on it.

    I know on the newer ones it is an electronic box inside the dash pretty much directly behind the steering column. I is the flasher and controls the daytime running lights.
    Had to replace mine and it was about $300 here in Canada.

    Check kick panel too the left of the clutch. That where most older trucks are located. Or under you dimmer switch panel. Remove two screws and should be there.

    But, right turn works?
    You have a simple wiring problem. Corroded, bad ground.
