Subject: Re: 94 900s (v6) looking for turn signal relay location?


Well, that makes me both worried and hopeful at the same time. Since the problem has been very intermittent, I'm hoping it's a bad connection somewhere. But given the location and the windshield leak that was dribbling in that vicinity, I'm a little worried. :( I'll probably try to get at the connections on the ICE and make sure they're dry and solid. Will check the side markers too since they've gotten water-logged in the past. With both failing at the same time, and the corresponding fog light not lighting up when the turn signal is activated, it again points to a central failure in my mind. :( Any other ideas are welcome. :) Especially those that have experience. :P My symptoms are basically that the turn signals work intermittently, mostly in a 'fast' flashing mode- and the same occurs whether using the turn signal lever or the hazard switch. Side markers and fogs don't fire ever, but the fog lights do work on their switch (as does the rear fog). Occasionally I get a warning that the brake light has failed, but test and it is working fine. -Jason "Steve Crowe" <scrowenopsamink.net> wrote in message news:56qlcvg9aqao2g3m8j10vs0ihul63etok7nopsamcom... > On Tue, 20 May 2003 18:59:00 -0400, "jbutterf" <jrbutternopsamr.net> > wrote: > > >Can anyone tell me where to find the turn signal control relay on a 1994 > >900?
