Noobie question: Turn signals don't work--what could it be?


norma

Recommended Posts

bad fuse or fuse holder (corrosion)

poor grounds/sockets at the bulbs (unlikely that all 4 would fail simultaneously)

flasher unit suddenly died (check to see if 4 way flashers work--they both use the same flasher)

4 way flasher switch went bad (turn signal power goes thru the 4 way switch)

turn signal lever has gone bad

etc etc...I'd check the fuse first: #5 on 6 fuse car; 5 & 6 on 12 fuse roundies; 6 on squarelights

cheers

It might be the 4-way flasher switch. This happened to my square light car. The switch is a tie point for the whole turn signal system. The switch wears out mechanically and the circuit opens. Try actuating it a few times. They are available new.

I first owned a 2002 in 1975.

Okay, it's not the fuses and the 4-way (that controls the hazard light, right?) seems fine because the hazard light works. What's next? Connections? This is bugging me. I checked the archives but I need more help. I'll check the manual too. Thanks.

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
