No Indicators!! Help a newbie!!!

Hi Everyone.
Just bought my very first Fiat and it's a 1997 1.6 16v auto Marea with 53000 miles on the clock. It came with 2 months tax and 5 months MOT all for the princely sum of 395.00!

I only intended getting a car with 12 months MOT and if it lasted me a year - great and I'd start all over again. I very nearly bought a battered Vectra with 111,000 on the clock for 550!!!!

Tha Marea is a cracking drive, hugging our country lanes for my 70 mile round trip to work. It is fast enough for me, better on fuel than my 2.2DTi Frontera and the interior is absolutely immaculate.

The car has, however some interesting quirks. Some I'm putting down to being a Fiat! I intend getting the cambelt done at the end of the month with a good service. I'll get a pre-MOT in July to tackle any bits and pieces needed during the two months before it's actually due.

However, on my way home tonight, my indicators stopped working and a quick check showed my hazards to be gone aswell! I have checked the fuse and the bulbs and all look to be ok. What now? Is there a flasher unit / relay? If - where is it? Does anyone have the same problem? How much are they? Where do I get one (if that's what it is).

Any thing else I can expect from my great new runabout??

Cheers for now

Meg

Re: No Indicators!! Help a newbie!!!

https://www.fiatforum.com/bravo-brav...avo-gars2.html

pic of fusebox is inconclusive..

as I said - there is A BOARD in the dash.. you remove glovebox to access it..,


1st look in Bravo/a section .. or wait for a reply from @franglais or @Neverth ..
the relay should TICK . so it's location should be obvious..
( some FIAT ones are in the steering column IIRC,
do let us know what you find,
Charlie

Re: No Indicators!! Help a newbie!!!

Either the ground wire, the flasher unit is gone or the hazards switch is broken (or unplugged).
The hazards and normal indicators get power via separate fuses and I doubt both of them are goners (number 1 and 9). And both of those are fed by separate main fuses.
All of the power is routed through the hazards switch and it toggles between those two fuse inputs.

You can check that it is getting power by pulling the hazards switch as one of the wires always receives power. Then another one should receive power when ignition is switched on.

Lightblue-red is from ignition switch and lightblue-white should have constant power. These two are switched by the hazard contacts (power in).
The blue-white is output to the flasher unit (power out).

Putting a power to the blue-white (from the inputs or cig ligher) should enable you to test if it works from the stalks (in case of broken hazards switch).

Assuming the wiring colors are the same, cannot say. They are the same on 2000 brava where I stole the constant power from the hazards for blinkers for lock/unlock flasher (meta remote).
Thanks varesecrazy thanked for this post

Re: No Indicators!! Help a newbie!!!

luckily for me unplugging and plugging back in the flasher unit cured this problem
If you cant find the fuse I have the handbook and can steer you, the may be marked in the lid. long time since i took it off.

Thanks.. but where was it..?

Cabin fuseboard..??

IIRC . My immob isdue relay was NOT Coveted in my 99 jtd 105 handbook.

It was the sound that made me strip the dssh and find it.

Just 2 telays..no fuses.

That was 10 yeats ago though..

Re: No Indicators!! Help a newbie!!!

i will look, but not in this weather tonight :-)
I will be using the car tomorrow so will check then. Mareas have fuses in several places, the 2 main panels which in my RHD 1.8 are by the drivers right knee, there are some behind the glove box and i think there is one other location. Hopefully its the main one. There is an addendum slip in with my layout as well, so its changed over the cars lifetime
