Its not fuses or bad bulb sockets. Its the circuit relay. It needs to be replaced. i have had that problem and that was the only fix.

On my Audi that was a bad bulb socket - I replaced the front turn signal bulb socket and the problem went away. Inspect the bulb sockets on your car, front and rear, and see which looks like a more likely candidate, and replace it if it looks like the bulb isn't the problem. You could just have a bulb seated slightly "off" and causing the problem, or it could be that the socket itself is failing.

Turnsignals sound like sizzle sound not blinking


Good day
Under the dash is an indicator unit. Some round and some square. When you listen under the dashboard when switch the indicator on, you will find it. Unplug it and get a new one because you can't fix them. Put the new one in and it should normal.
Good luck.

How to retrieve DTC:
The heater control panel has self-diagnosis function. To run the self-diagnosis function, do the following:
1.Turn the blower fan OFF.
2.Press and hold the recirculation control switch and the rear window defogger switch down.
3.Turn the ignition switch ON (ll).
4.Release both switches. The recirculation indicator and the rear window defogger indicators come on. The recirculation indicator goes off 3 seconds later and the A/C indicator comes on, then the self-diagnosis will begin. About 10 seconds later, the self-diagnosis will finish and the A/C indicator goes off.
- If any trouble is found, the recirculation indicator blinks the diagnostic trouble code (DTC) to indicate a faulty circuit or component.
- If the system is ok, the recirculation indicator stays off.

Front right indicator and both windscreen pumps not working


Sounds like a blown fuse - check it and replace if needed. If the fuse blows again you have something else going on, like a shorted wire or internally shorted washer pump.

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!
