    Every time I indicate left or right it seem to flash on the dash the opposite side a few times before it goes to the side it so-pose to indicate. It's really annoying :banghead:......Does anybody know how to sort this ?

    Bloody hell - I suppose you have checked that it doesn't do that outside ?!!!!!!!

    Never heard of that before - maybe NHN or Khufu could help ?

    no coz when it stopped after 27secs when you just touched the stalk it started working again.
    a relay either works well buzz's coz arking or dont work but a relay couldnot cross circuits like that in my opinion.
    i have taken stalks appart on cars to clean contacts etc and although not too complicated id say they could easily cause this if worn.

    instead of flicking try to slowly move stalk up n down so to speak see if you can find a point where it works correct and point where is malfunctioning.

    Thanks for your reply ...

    But if you look closely at the vid after 27 secs ...I don't switch it back down ....it appears I was about to ...but I didn't....as it started to indicate the right way.

    It's strange ...because it only does it sometimes....but recently it has got worse.

    Hi Digzz,

    Long time ago I realise but did you sort this problem out? Replace the stalk maybe? Or the relay switch?

    Cheers
