i had a topic about this a while ago, as im driving the left blnker decides to go on by itself and not turn of, it doesnt flash it just comes on.... stays.... then goes off, i changed the indicator relay but its still doing it, one thing i noticed is that it does it in the heat, and also when i put my foot on the brake it comes on, then goes off when i take it off, its not always doing it but every now and then, today it did it a fair bit and its pissing me off.

since the relay has been changed what else could it be?? i notice the accessory relay was pretty hot down there compared to the other two, could it be that?

i dont understand how its linked to the brakes either, maybe its the brake switch on the pedal?? my brake lights are real sensitive i only have to barely touch the pedal and the lights turn on.

any help would be greatly appreciated.

thanks peoples!!!

Check the indicator stalk, heat may cause the contacts to *just* touch

sounds like your using a heat activated bimetal strip so your best bet is a new one, most servos stock them



When you do things right, people won't be sure you've done anything at all.
