    Hi guys, this is my first real post over here on ASN.

    got myself a Y reg A3 1.8T sport...everythings been going fine until recently the indicators just suddenly stopped working.

    when the stalk is moved the indicators seem to flash once and then stop working all together, this happens both ways and when the stalk is manipulated vigorously lol you can get them to flash every now and then.

    The hazards work fine and also the indicators still flash when the car is locked

    does anyone have any thoughts???

    I have done a little research and seen stuff about relays and them being connected to the hazard switch etc and other people have told me its the stalk etc. if anyone can shed any light. I have just purchased a second hand stalk off of ebay for less than a fiver so no issue with replacing that but not sure if that will fix it or not

    Indicator relay has gone mate... common problem... you need to buy a hazard light switch as this has all the relays in it :)

    About 30/35 quid
