I have a 1991 740 which has just developed an indicator (turn signal)
The problem began recently as a grumbling buzzing noise, sounding in
time with the blinking of the indicator light. The signal now also
intermittently cuts out and does not work at all. This also affects
the seat belt not deployed dash signal, which seems to be on the same
I've had a look at the fuse behind the ashtray and it is fine, but the
buzzing noise can definitely be heard from the fuse box area now the
front cover is off.
I found that wiggling the whole fuse box when the turn signal doesn't
work at all can persuade things to work for a while, so this might
suggest a loose or corroded connection?
The buzzing noise is very distinct, not a burning or shorting out kind
of noise, more an electro/mechanical thing. Could that be a relay
I'm going to get out my Haynes manual in a bit and go play with it
some more, but was hoping someone here might have some knowledge or
advice that might point me in the right direction.
Thanks very much if you can help....
