Need more info. What indicator handle? What indicators? If you're talking about the turn signal stalk then you may need to replace the stalk and wiring harness.

SOURCE: indicator not working on dashboard

Check in this order. Fuse(s). If not working, then the dashboard lighting should be next. Remove it and check for a blown light bulb(s) and replace accordingly. If problem persists, then you probably have a short and it will require further investigation, but it souds simple and fixable with ease for now. Let me know how things work out.

SOURCE: Flashing Unit for Indicators Replacement

Most likely it's the hazard switch - the relay for the hazards and the turn signals is built into it. When they start to die, you will see erratic behavior with the turn signals and/or hazards, and eventually they'll both fail completely. Replace your hazard switch on the dash and you'll be good to go.

I have the same problem - it is the relay switch attached to and behind the hazard warning triangle on the dashboard. Pull it all out (gently and replace (£60 ish). The indicators and hazard lights are on the same relay circuit. This is a well known problem for this car (amongst others - how about the wipers sticking)

SOURCE: intermittent wiper, turn indicator, rear screen demister not work

Electrical problems are rife in these models. Try replacing the relevant relay box - a black box situated in the fuse box bay. This will hopefully solve your problem. Good luck!

How to fix intermittent indicator

If your bulb receptor is one of those metal stamped out ones then you have to take the bulb out, pull the center contact up with a needle nose plier and reinsert the bulb. This will tighten the bulb in the socket, for awhile. If your bulb center is worn down you may need a new bulb too even though the bulb still works.

2006 citroen relay indicators have stopped working and now getting "batt" flashing any ideas ?

The battery light flashing is an indication of an intermittent short. The intermittancy seems to be caused by a "hung" relay or a partially welded relay that is not releasing its contacts. Try going to the relay and fuse box under the hood and pulling one relay at a time to see if the observed action stops. If it does, replace the faulty relay. If not go to the fuse box under the dashboard and do the saqme thing!

Left turn indicator intermittent how to fix?

The turn signal indicator switch could be corroding (getting rusted on the inside). You could take it out & break the corrosion/rust & lubricate it with wd40 & put it back in..hopefully it solves the issue. If not, then you might need to get another indicator switch. You start off by taking off the steering wheel neck panels

Hi Mate

I think I can help here.

You will find that there is a relay behind the hazard warning switch that is faulty. Change that relay and everthing should be fine.
