BMW 3232IS (E36): Right Turn Signal Problems

Right turn signals(both front and rear) stopped flashing not showing green light in insturment cluster too. Earlier they use to work when i ON the harazd but they were flashing slowly not at the same speed as of lfet but now even they stopped working on harard too.

FYI, Actually just to let you know few months back i put off the steering wheel along with airbag to install new but was not able to made new one working so fitted the old steering wheel again and i noticed this turn signal problem right after.

Please let me know what should i do to make them working.

I think you need to get back into the steering column and fix the connection(s).

Well it seems that a connection may have been missed in reassembling the steering column. Have you looked at realoem.com ?

Maybe you have to retrace your steps.

It would seem that somewhere a connection, maybe a ground, was missed during the reassembly.
