    Exclamation Problem when indicating!!

    evening guys

    hope you can shed some light on a problem thats just started happening with my motor?
    basically when i move my indicator stalk to turn left or right,all thats happening is the green arrow light is staying on,on my dash its not making the clicking sound either and the bulb in the headlight is not flashing either on the outside its just staying on untill i move the stalk back to the off position. any ideas what it could be would be a big help!!!!cheers

    Damn, wish I could remember the name of this part... hazard relay?
    Happened to my car when I took it for the test drive, the dealership sorted it quick and easy.

    Edit: Also happened to my MG, again - easy fix.
    2001 Audi RS4 2.7 Bi-Turbo - Nogaro Blue

    1975 MG Midget 1500 - Tahiti Blue

    2003 Audi S3 - Dolphin Grey; SOLD!

    The indicator relays built into the hazard switch.

    But is a common fault

    am i right in thinking then,cos mine is a 52reg so its the facelift model,do i just need to pop out them false buttons either side of the traction controll button,then just pull the gloss black plate towards me to get to the hazzard switch,or do i still need to remove my sterio??

    I used a table knife with a cloth round it to prevent scratching the trim, if ur firm but gentle with it you should get it off easy enough. its only held in by clips, once the trims off its pretty self explanitory how to get the switch out.
