    The blinker relay might be going bad.

    the bulbs should be good.. replaced them recently. where exactly would the blinker relay be located? is that something to do with the fuse?

    Just did it to mine

    I just replaced the blinker relay on my WS6. You have to remove the dashboard underneath the steering wheel. just some screws and a couple of clips. It took me about 1/2 hour to figure out where the relay was. It is clipped to the center console just under the radio. kinda hard to see. If it wasn't raining outside right now, I would run and get a quick picture of where it is. To the right of the steering column left of the stereo right behind where the ashtray sits. Hope this doesn't confuse you.

    Too tough to pick just 1

    A little different than the other blinker thread. Indicators flash when they have the proper amount of current flowing, this is why they don't flash when a bulb is out (you can also make them flash quicker when adding an additional bulb). My guess would definitely be a relay/resistor, unless you have spliced any wires in the harness.

    First- sorry for the crappy phone pics.

    You have to take off the two lower dash panels on the car. (the pic is sideways)



    Look to the right of the steering column, just behind the change holder (ashtray etc), it is clipped to the interior



    You should see the clip and the wires leading to the flasher relay rught there.

    Hope this helps.
