    Indicator / Turn Signal / Hazard Lights – Inspection & Repairs

    Why are indicators important?

     

    Indicators / turn signals are very important to your car’s safety. They allow other drivers to know where you are going so that they can stay out of your way. Therefore, it is crucial that they are fixed if they begin to malfunction.

    It is also illegal to drive a car when the indicator lights are not working. You may fail your next warrant of fitness if these lights aren’t working as they should.

    You can often tell when an indicator light bulb has stopped working because instead of “flashing” / “ticking” at once per second it will flash and make the ticking noise much faster at twice the speed  (at around twice per second).

    Causes of indicators not working

    • Bulbs in need of replacement – Like any other bulb, indicator bulbs have a finite life and will eventually need replacement. Indicator bulbs can often blow from old age, excess vibration or a faulty regulator in the alternator that causes high car battery voltages and over charging of the cars battery.
    • Malfunctioning indicator switch – The switch is what sends the electrical signals to the indicators to turn them on and off. If it breaks, these signals won’t be sent and the indicator(s) won’t work.
    • Blown fuse – Fuses place a limit on how much electrical current can be sent to different parts of your car. Your indicator lights rely on a fuse to work. When the fuse blows, they will stop functioning until it is replaced.
    • Interrupted circuit – An electrical circuit powers your indicator and hazard light bulbs. A damaged or broken wire in the indicator circuit can interrupt the current between the indicator or hazard light bulb(s), limiting or completely stopping the bulb from working. Sometimes a wire can intermittently go open circuit under certain conditions, meaning your indicator or hazard lights might work randomly.
