Van off the road


SPCleaning

Recommended Posts

Yesterday my Ford Transit decided it didn't want to indicate anymore. Also the hazards have stopped working too. When I double lock all the indicators flash as they should.

So I have spent the day googling fuse boxes and relays for a 2001 transit and getting very annoyed. On top of this my normal mechanic left for his holiday today for a week and can't work his usual magic. (I think he normally whispers in the door mirror and everything is mended again).

 

I'm a tad stressed and think I'll pour a glass of red as I weigh up the options. :(

im surprised you listen to the weather forecast . all that technology and they still never get it right -and boy do they love to make it sound like a hurricanes "biggest storm in decades coming " "dont go out unless its essential "iv heard that said at least 3 times this year

be worth checking that you have 12v at both sides of the fuse for the indicators in the fuse box . best way is with a multimeter but you can do it with a bulb and small piece of wire

It is a headache, I rang three guys this morning before I could get someone to agree to take a look. Most couldn't touch it for a week. The guy that I booked with happened to have a job on Monday close to me so has agreed to make a slot on the grounds that I'm a small business too.

 

I so wish I understood vehicle electrics. My van doesn't match any of the diagrams on google. Nightmare!

i used to be a mechanic, but dont miss it one bit. i know transits used to have the flasher relay sitting inside the column shroud right near the stalks but its over 7 yrs ago i last looked at a tranny and yours might not be in the same place . first step would be to check for power at the fuse then next see if the power is getting to the flasher relay . i shouldnt think itll take ur man long to find out the problem

I wouldn't bother fixing it if it's a white tranny

People don't expect them to indicate anyway:rofl:

Just a typical white van man

 

:rofl:

I'm one of the good ones,...........honest..
