Blinker Doesn't............

Recommended Posts

Hello all, my 99' C2 suddenly came down with a problem yesterday, a blinker that doesn't. At least not all of the time. Most times, when I flip the lever up or down past the indent, it will blink once, and then freeze with the light on at the second blink. Other times, it blinks a few times and then sticks. Always with the light on. Then again, other times it works perfectly fine. Another gremlin! Argh!

As a kid, I recall a small cylinder under the dash which made the blinking noise, and regulated the blink. Does this car have a blinker under the dash which is easy to replace, like older cars, or ............... is there something fancier in this car.

Obviously, this question does not rank up there in importance, like installing PSE or cupholders, but it can be rather embarassing (not to mention the safety hazard). Although, I am becoming quite proficient at manual blinking! :D I have mad blinking skills!

Thanks for the thoughts.

The blinker bulbs all light up, but they don't blink much, if ever (it's intermittent). And the hazard lights work fine. All four lit and blinking.

The first post was a picture of a panel with the blinker. Is it easy to access?

Any other thoughts, beside the blinker itself?

Courtesy of Part No.: 1HO 953 227 made in Tunisia (of all places!). $20.75 + tax. Not bad for a Porsche!

It was the blinker/emergency flasher relay (it has a big 191 stamped on the out side) under the dash.

As Toolpants indicated, the relay panel under the dash was easy to access. Plug and play!

Blinks like a mad man now!

Thanks all!. :cheers: Most honorable mention (and thanks) to Toolpants. :clapping:

Another demon excised!

You guys/gals are the best!
