    Hi all. Just drove home from work and noticed all of a sudden that my indicators have a mind of their own. At first they flash normally, then flash fast and then stop all together until I cancel them and try again just for the same thing to happen.. Seems to do it in both directions. Hazards seem to work fine. Would this just be the stalk itself or a relay?
    Cheers, any advice appreciated. I am so close to taking this car to Beachy Head and forgetting to put the handbrake on lol

    Thanks mate. Assumed as the hazards worked fine then it would be the stork which looks like a pig to change. I will get a new hazard relay and give it a go. Thanks again

    Im so glad otherwise would have just bought a stalk and spent all tomorrow removing the airbag and steering wheel to replace something for no reason! Thats why I love this site so much, good reason to keep buying audi's !!!

    I have also seen this be the physical hazard switch before.
