    Comfort Blinker

    Anyone know anything about this mod at all?
    I believe its fitted to later models where you just tap the indicator stalk and it gives you 3 flashes of the indicator which ever way you've tapped it. I know of someone who retro fitted it to his S2 but I don't have any more info
    Cheers

    I have this on my list of bits to fit at some point. Around 50 iirc and wires up behind the hazard switch via a little patch / pass through cable

    I know what your talking about.

    I've used it a couple of times on my mates car when I drive that and it annoys the pants off me.
    Once you press it there is no way to cancel the 3 blinks.
    It keeps going. right pain if your saying thanks to a truck or someone or just moving quickly.

    Can't you flick the indicator 3 times with your finger?

    Had it on my last 4 company cars, i like it.
    And for the record, you can cancel it, just move it the other way, well at least you can on the last 3 ford mondeo's and my current exeo.

    Would be interested to know how to retro fit it to the wife's car.

    Got it on the company Vauxhalls. It annoys the Hell out of me. Guess it's a Marmite thing

    Do you have Cruise Control? Get that fitted.
    I love traveling on the motorway now.

    theres a slightly differnt part number that just comes with bare wires rather than pissing around with the wiring at the hazard switch you can just tap in at the indicator stalk.

    And you can fit cruise, i did it on my old 1.8T with cable throttle. Havent fitted it to the TQS as i need a different stalk than the one i have.
