The car doesn't get used much out of the garage twice since Christmas.Got it out yesterday charged the battery up went to go for a drive and noticed I had no indicators.
The hazards all work ok.
Everything else on that stalk works ok except the indicators, they dont even click when you move the stalk.
All the fuses are ok, ive tested them.
My book shows that the indicator and hazards are on the same one under the bonnet.
Any ideas.

Thanks.
I think it knows that we was thinking about selling it. :lol:

Looks like it can be the dreaded faulty indicator stalk problem. If I get it just right they work.
It ceases to amaze me how something can go faulty by lack of use.

I bought my 107 in April 2012 I didn't have my full license so rarely used it in the first six months I owned it. When I did start using it I noticed the indicator was intermittent. The dealer who owned the car before me had it under their ownership for a couple of years before I bought it.

So the car hadn't really been used much for a couple of years, it cost £85 + labour to have a new stalk fitted and that was at an independent.

If you disconnect the battery again, get some electrical contact spray and spray the area.
Who knows you might be lucky after using it stationery for an hour up and down.
Don't use WD40

Spraying is not a solution, the casing completely covers the contacts and you cannot get anything in to there. The only solution is to remove the steering wheel, (taking appropriate precautions with the airbag) remove the switch and strip, clean the contacts, re tension the lever / wiper arms grease and replace. Its been covered on here before. But spraying wont help at all.
You could try rapid left right indicating (ign off) for a dozen or so operations, sometimes it clears enough of the track to get them working. But its only a temporary solution.

Well as you say it's been covered on here before, and l have seen the spraying method used it worked also. Be careful when removing the steering wheel, l never remember what it is, sorry.
But a spring or something must be kept in the same place with tape.
Regarding the Airbag leaving the battery disconnected for 10 minutes will take care of that.
