Turn Signal Relay Intermittent

Recommended Posts

Hi,

Well, we've finally had some temperatures above 30 degrees Celsius, and my turn signal has become intermittent. It seems to stop blinking when it gets warm inside the dash through sun. Works better on the highway as it gets cooled a bit and first thing while still in the garage. Hazard Lights don't work when this happens either. Am wondering whether the relay could be faulty to cause this? I opened up the relay (popped the plastic cap) and cleaned it out with electrical contact cleaner but no change.

Thanks

Sounds like a faulty relay. Try swapping wth someone in your area.

Sorry about the delay - ordered a new relay and there we go - click click, click click as intended. Thanks

Well it appears that my good fortune was short lived. Yesterday (not that warm) and the same problem arose again. While I had the signal light on (left and right - tried both), I applied the hazard light switch to see what would happen. Result - turn signal indicator in tachometer went out, and hazard light switch lit up, but did not blink. The hazard light switch is new also, so am wondering whether this could be a grounding out in the switch itself? Have been looking at the wiring diagram (enclosed), and am wondering whether it could be the wiring coming from the hazard light switch to the relay and beyond to the switch (colour blk/wh/grn) or perhaps the live wire originating at the ignition switch (X) running through the light switch (75) and then to turn signal switch (30), although I don't quite understand the voltage flow through this circuit.
