    Hi,

    When using my indicators they work but they also cut off themselves and i have to indicate again. This is continually happening. I am trying to locate my fusebox in my A3. Does anyone know where this is? (its on a 52 plate).

    Thanks.

    there is a panel on the side of the dash (drivers side) as you open the door, the fuses are behind there

    Thanks, i just found that. The reason i wanted to know where the fuse box is located is because in my MK2 Golf there would be a relay there and that was normally the cause of the problem. I cannot see a relay here.

    Does anyone know what is causing me this problem? The indicator works fine sometimes, it cuts of other times, and sometimes when the indicators are on the pattern is rather strange. Also in the fuse box compartment there is big sticker which contains numbers for each type of fuse. However i cannot figure out which number is for which fuse?

    The numbers can be found in your handbook - it doesnt sound like a fuse issue to me tho, more likely the stalk itself i'd say

    Sounds like it may be the relay

    The relays are under the knee bolster on the drivers side.

    I thought it may be the relay but the hazards seem to be working??

    Do the indicators remain on when the car is stationary? Has it anything to do with how the steering wheel is positioned?

    The hazard warning switch has dual relays for the indicators and the hazard switch.

    9 times out of 10 strange indicator problems are caused by the hazard switch.

    Thanks for that, it was the relay. I read an old post here and it said the hazard switch has 2 relay's. One for the hazards and one for the indicators. I replaced the hazard switch which contains the relay's and it solved the problem.
