    Indicator / Turn Signal Switch Repair / Replacement in Hamilton

    About indicator / turn signal repairs:

    Your car’s indicators (or turn signals) provide you with a vital method to communicate what direction you are turning to other drivers. For this reason, it is important that they remain in good condition and function when they need to. Damage to your indicators can increase the risk of accidents and result in your car failing its Warrant of Fitness

    The turn signal switch is usually attached to your car’s steering column and controls the indicators. Some cars use a “combination” switch, which operates the indicators and headlights. It is worth noting that many cars share wiring for the indicators and the brake lights. This means that failed turn signal switch can prevent both components from working. In some cars, the hazard light will also be attached to the turn signal switch. This means that if the component breaks, you will not be able to signal other road users of a hazard.

     

    Causes of a faulty turn signal switch:

    • Blown fuse – The fuse that controls your car’s indicators may have blown. In this case, it will need to be replaced to restore proper indicator functionality.

    • Bad wiring – Damage to the wiring can prevent electrical signals from running between the turn signal switch and the indicator light bulbs. 
    • Switch has become loose – If the turn signal switch becomes disconnected, it will not work properly. This may cause it to feel loose and not have any resistance when turned.

    Common symptoms of a faulty indicator switch include:

    • One or more indicators not working.
    • Brake lights not working.
    • Headlights being stuck on / off.
    • Indicators flashing faster than normal (which indicates an indicator bulb is blown)
