Topic-icon Gear Warning Lights for 78 PA32RT300

I am troubleshooting my landing gear warning light circuit on my Lance. The large square red gear warning light which is supposed to light up when the gear is not up and locked or down and locked does not work. Also the landing gear auto extender off flashing light does not work. They both tie to the same circuit with the flasher. My mechanic suggested the first place to start is with the flasher unit. Only problem is where it is located and what does it look like? In the service manual, it is shown as a small tube with wires out each end and one out in the middle (I was looking for a auto type flasher unit in a metal cube or round unit with plug in tabs.) Has anyone been through this system recently in a Lance/Arrow/Saratoga recently and could share information?
Thanks
Dick

I have a 1978 PA28R-201T and had a problem with the auto extender flasher. Turned out to be a broken wire from the switch. Required taking off the cover over the flap handle, elevator trim mechanisms. Quite an easy fix.
