Turn signal/Hazard dead


Recommended Posts

After 2 years my turn signal and hazard light just died. The dash light is also dead when operating them.


I am not an experienced mechanic 🙂


I have checked the 7.5A fuse for signal system and it's ok. Changed it anyway.

Now I wanted to check the relay but that's where I think I'm doing it wrong.




It says the outer pin should have 12V.

When measuring the middle pin i get 6.23 V. The outer has zero.



But when then turning on turn signal or hazard, both pins show zero volts on the multimeter.


Am doing this test wrong?

Hi, on blue/red wire you should have 12V when blinkers/hazard is switched off and main switch on. If you don't have it switch off main and try to measure resistance from the fuse to connector blue/red, you should measure 0.1-0.5 ohms. If that is ok, with switched off main measure from brown to the ground, it should be open loop if blinkers/hazard switch is off.

Let me know what you have mesured.
