Question about 2000 Oldsmobile Alero
Humidity causes water condensation on the contact points of the indicator blinker circuit. The blinking is the result of two electromagnets, which switches the front & back lights alternately. However due to collection of water on the coils of the electromagnet, short it thus not charging the magnet which attracts the relay turn by turn. With dead electromagnet the switching does not occur at all. The box is generally supposed to be water proof, which might require a change of the seals or replacement of the entire mechanism( only the box which has the electromagnets)....sodeep
