Hi having a major issue with this car atm.

basically indicators dont work and if i press the hazard switch the relay clicks but no hazard lights

click smartlock all the indicators come on. removed the fuse for indicators and click the smartlock the lights come on dim though

what I have done is :
replace the indicator relay with new
replaced fuses with new ones
replaced steering wheel combination switch.

have disconnected back of car and eliminated tralier plug.
have had trouble in past with indicators when it had more load ie tralier plugged in.
would it be the bcm by any chance ?.... any ideas?

I have also pulled out the bcm and looked at it no visible problems.

This problem has me completely baffled

I have swapped the combination switch in the steering and its operating a little different than before.

1) all the hazards work when you press the smartlock to lock the car.
2) when you press the hazard light button the relay clicks but does nothing and I have 12v across the fuse when i test with a multimeter when the hazard button is pressed. Indicators i get 0v at the fuse both left and right.

ok ... you mean the remote - smartlock is a feature of the car itself ie part of the electrics.
