Hey, yesterday when I indicated a buzzing noise started to come from below the drivers kick panel and the hazards started flashing.
I can only assume it's the indicator relay going off it's head but I'm not sure which one it is. When I take out the fuse it stops all together and no lights work.
It's an EB Ghia.
Any suggestions?

Hey Slammeb, how did you fix it mate ?
I have a similar problem with hazard staying on even when parked for the night.
Cheers

The flasher relay in the dash fuse compartment could be the culprit... It's the odd three pined relay looking thing... Will also be labelled in the owners manual or the sticker/labelling inside the fuse box... Guess over time the contacts in it could burn out...

Combo switch could be playing up which may be able to hold the blinkers on if the contacts in it fell to pieces...

The other thing is smartlock can operate the blinkers too and does so when the buttons are pressed on the remotes... I have seen a smartlock module be the cause of this and lead an EB to have a flat battery just because it held the blinkers on all night... A second hand smartlock module fixed the issue...

Cheers,
Tim
