Question Turn signal issues ('82 528e)

Hello and thanks for reading! I have yet another issue with my beamer. The turn signals on my 1982 528e are acting strangely. Sometimes they will work just fine, but there are other times when they will turn on, but they won't blink. The bulb comes on, but instead of blinking, it just will stay a steady light. Upon jiggling the switch a little bit, I got the turn signals to work fine again and they have not acted up yet. Could this be a wiring issue, a problem with the bulbs, or does it have something to do with the switch? Thanks,

-Dan

Could be the switch? Or maybe the bulbs or connections. Try switching them around and see if it continues. It may even be the flasher relay which is on the steering column. The turn signals and emergency flasher lights share the same relay. Check to see if the emergency flasher lights work correctly. If not, it's probably the relay.
