T31 Indicator Relay Location?


Hi folks!

Here I am again seeking your knowledge: where can I find the turning indicator relay in my T31 (2.5 petrol 4WD 6 MT)?

The reason I’m asking is that I’m planning to replace all the indicators bulbs with LEDs, and hyper flashing is expected. One of the options to counter that is to install an aftermarket relay. But for the life of me I just can’t find where it is, nor can I google out any meaningful result online...

Many thanks in advance!

Unfortunately there is no flashing relay unit in the T31 like you might typically be used to. Flashing of indicators and hazard lights is all controlled by CAN communications from the BCM (Body Control Module). The "ticking" sound you hear is actually a small buzzer integrated into the dash cluster gauges in parallel with the indicator lamps.

You should be able to get T10 LED globes with built-in resistors which will stop the hyperflashing you refer to.

Re:


Thanks heaps for the insight, Kev. I guess I may have to search on the LED globes you mentioned, or resort to installing resistors.

BTW, Kev, it appears that the turning indicators bulbs on T31 are T20 types which are quite bigger than T10.

Again thanks very much for your help. It's people like you that keep this forum so wonderful!

Take care and be safe.

Ben

Seems like you're onto the size OK. In any case the User Manual should have a section on bulb sizes and wattages.
