For all those wiring gremlins we love, this is the place to discuss them.

Lights won’t popup when I flash

Post by crogw11597 »

Gained a new problem on the way back from Hethel. The lights will no longer pop up when you flash but they will come up when you turn the lights on normally. The light is coming on though, giving a strange glow from beneath. Any ideas anyone? I guess I will need to spend an hour or two with a multi meter to find the problem.

You may have a problem with the stalk switch. It can sometimes be a relay (located behind/under the left hand light pod).

Do make sure it isn't just a blown fuse first.

The drivers handbook and Service Notes are helpful.
