Mk6 Transit indicator

Recommended Posts

I've just got out of the van and locked the doors and the normal flash of the indicators happened, then I noticed that the near side indicator, front and rear had stayed illuminated, not flashing just on. No key in the ignition, indicator stalk was in the off position. Anyone got any ideas why?, I've asked Mr Google and it seems it's happened to other people but I can't find an answer to why, or how it happens.

Possible faulty flasher relay? Will be linked to hazard switch no doubt and obviously sends a signal to immobiliser. Hence the flash when you trigger the fob.

Would a stuck relay only affect one side?

 

I know there is a relay at the top of the clutch pedal, is there another somewhere?

I'd like to tap your brains Ratman - recently I had to get a new diesel pump and EGR on my Mk6 Transit, I don't want to say what I paid the garage, suffice to say its given me more impetus to learn mechanics, anyway when I got it back it sometimes flashes on the immob red led, I know these will do that to display that a fault code is logged, theres youtube vids to show how to read the fault from the flashes, what I'm asking you is as a home mechanic if you wanted to get serious what gear would you buy to do all the electronics at home I'm thinking IDS, Bosch KTS 650 etc. I know a virginised pump doesnt need diag, but I'm asking what gear could I buy to not only read , but clear codes in my Ford and would it need another box for Iveco daily, also what subscriptions and costs or not necessary?

thanks

maybe you saw this, worth a read if not, re flasher unit - 2 units in one, faulty and/or possible loose connectors

Thank you, that could be the problem as a few weeks ago one of the indicators didn't flash, just stayed on, it sorted itself so I thought no more about it. I'll give it a look in the morning.
