    indicators stopped working

    mot is booked tomorrow and had a look at a dodgy hazard light switch that somtimes decides not to work. i took it apart and cleaned contacts etc put it back together and it's back to good working condition. took the car around the block and i now have no indicators!!!

    what have i done!?
    there is a chance i've bridged 2 of the contacts when testing it. could this have blown something? all fuses are ok.
    any suggestions....... car is 1996 a4 1.9tdi
    thanks

    Re: indicators stopped working

    i'm really desperate for some help guys.....
    i've had the hazard switch open again and done loads of tests while it was plugged. if i could at least get the indicators working again i can drive the car. no change. do the indicators have their own seperate relay? could i have blown this?

    thanks

    i reckon that the turn relay is knackered and i also think that the relay is part of the hazard switch.......

    can anyone confirm this for me please?

    thanks

    I think the relay for the indicators is part of the hazard switch. Shame you don't own a BMW the indicators never work on them anyway,lol

    if it is the same as the b5 shape passat, which it is, indicator relay is part of hazard switch. and quite a common fault on the passat's.
