Exclamation E34 Side Indicators Won't Flash

Please can someone help me, i bought my 520i in december and although the front and rear indicators work fine, both of the side indicators do not work, i have tried changing the bulb and i have had the relay out and checked and have bin driving like this ever since and it has been buggin the crap out of me : .

Does anyone have a pic of what the pins on the indicator relay are supposed to look like , as there is a pin labeled C2 on mine and it look as if it might have snapped off. even thought all the pictures i havve found do not appear to even have this pin.

if im totally of track can someone please point me in the right direction?


Thanks a lot!

I don't have any experience with the side indicators as my car doesn't have them, so I can't really help you -- we can just wait for someone more knowledgable on the subject to drop in.

I do however know a way you could fix it: you could run wiring from the indicators and tap into the front ones -- it would work exactly the same.

Welcome to bimmerwerkz by the way.

sp0rky is an unknown quantity at this point
What year is your car?

Most e34s with sidemarkers aren't supposed to flash, they just light up when the parking lights are swtiched on.

I believe he means the side repeaters on the fenders.

I have a 1992 520i SE UK spec and the side indicators are on the wings, not on the bumpers,
