Right Indicator malfunction Hi All, I've searched high and low on here and I can't seem to find this problem. I have a 2013 T31 X-Trail and on Friday the right indicator stopped working. The left works fine but when you put the right indicator on you get one blink on the dash and that's it. So Saturday morning I get the manual out and start reading up and get set to head down to Supercheap for a fuse when all of a sudden it works fine again.
Then yesterday (also a hot day like Friday) it decides to stop working around midday. I checked the hazard lights and they worked fine, then once again the right indicator is all good. Today at midday, guess what? It's gone again. All of the globes are fine and I've replaced the fuse I think just to be sure but I'm guessing it's a loose wire maybe somewhere? The hot days are relaxing the cables somehow??
Any help/suggestions would be much appreciated.
Re: Right Indicator malfunction Remove the indicator stalk and inspect the contacts if you can. They may just need a clean and a little electrical grease. If not switch it with a known good one.
Either that or the Indicator relay- which is the thing to do first. You can open a relay and inspect the contacts which can suffer from carbon buildup or wear from arcing. If it is the relay, check also the bulbs have not suffered from water damage, if one is getting wet and shorting, the relay will be overloaded and could fail again in short order
