Hi there, a novice here, trying to work out why all his left hand indicators have stopped working. The right hand side lights/indicators are all okay and the RH hazard works fine. The LH hazard light does not work but the LH headlights and brake lights are all fine.

I've tested the bulbs and fuses and all are okay.

As far as I've read the control module unit under the driver's seat needs checking.

Any other ideas, please? Ideas gratefully accepted.

Many thanks.

You could also check the wiring to/from Control Module & the indicator stalk & the stalk itself. It's not unheard of for the PCB tracks to fail within the stalk itself. This means removing the steering wheel & column trim to make life easy, but you may be able to get access without removal of these parts, not sure.

Ended up disconnecting the headlight and found that the back and side indicator started working. The module under the seat was fine as was the stalk, so the problem lay in the wiring between the cab and the front lights. After taking the bumper off we found that the headlight wire had been squashed. Amazing that it lasted so long!
