Default How can I test a turn signal relay for function/failure?

Sorry if this question has already been posted, but I couldn't find the answer. My g/f's turn signals wont work, fuses are fine. Hazards still work. Bulbs are fine. At this point I assume it is the relay switch, but I have no idea wher it is located. I drive a [sm=hail.gif]1970 Dodge Dart Swinger. It is a Wright Flyer compared to the modern space shuttles you folks are driving. Any help would be appreciated. Thanx

Default How can I test turn signal relay function/failure?

Appearantly I didn't think far enough ahead. Is the hazard button attached to the actual relay? Do either of these seem consistant with an Audi relay switch part number: #8D0 941 509 H ? or
PA 6 GF30 ? Also, how can I check it to see if it is the culprit? I have a digital multi-meter.

Thanks,
Subbie

Jestnomen:

Glad to see you're online... I've been sifting through the electrical issue posts and finding a lot of situations similar to mine. My 01 A4 horn and turn signal won't work... fuses are fine. Seems related to the steering column, because horn works ok when activating the alarm. Maybe a relay switch? Are you aware of any electrical schematics online or have any ideas? Thanks as always!

do your hazard lights work? I'm not sure if the two problems are related or not. i don't have a schematic for electrical.

It will take me a few minutes to look things up. In the mean time, why don't you spary some contact cleaner on the turn signal switch and see if there is just gunk in there

2000 horn relay in in the relay box unker the driver side knee bolster. It should be the relay number 1, he one farthest to the left.

Don't have info for 2001.

Hi 01BlackA4, welcome to the forum. It's probably a problem in the blinker relay (located inside the hazard button).

Do you have heated seats or do you have the little slip down storage?

I have the same problem as a lot of people with the turn signal not working but the hazards working on my 2001 A4. If the turn signal relay is in the hazard button, do you know if this can be accessed by pulling the sterio deck out and getting to the faulty piece?

Also, is Audi dealer the only place that carries these parts?

Thanks,
mg

i Had the same problem and i had to switch the hazard button which as all you should know now acts as a relay.. the easy way to replace it is taking out the dummy button right next to the hazard switch and sticking your finger in there and pushing the switch out.. a lil prying with a small really flat screw driver might be necessary. if thats not the case you might have to pull the radio out..

Hi

i repaired my hazard switch - very easy.

The relay IS located in the dashboard switch.

The switch came out very easily using a flat screw driver at the top and bottom of the switch

Simply pull the switch away from the old loom. Attached the new switch thoe loom.

Push it all back in

Flash away ..................
