Help! Turn signal indicator lamps not working

I hope some of you can help me. My 2001 330ci's turn signals suddenly stopped working.

When I flip the turn signal lever, I cannot hear the tick tock sound or do I see the light flash on and off in the instrument cluster. But upon further inspection, it seems the outside turn signal lamps are working.

Additionally, the seat belt warning light stays lit after I put on the seatbelt. I checked the fuses, but I can't tell if there's a bad one.

Any ideas? Thanks!

Nelson

ICE>Link may be causing my problem?

Guys-

In case this helps diagnose my problem, I discovered the volume and radio station up/down button on the steering wheel does not work nor does the sunroof open button, nor will the air conditionung work.

I also noticed that the Denison ICE>link is acting goofy too and won't play. It plays for a few seconds, then a loud pop is heard and it goes off and the radio come on.

So I suspect the Ice>Link has gone bad. What do you think?

Try removing the ice>Link module to see if your blinker and seatbelt lights return to normal. If so, the module may be bad.

I had similar symptoms. After disconnecting Ice Link connectors at the CD changer location and now everything is OK. When I reconnect the ICE LINK, the problems reappear.

In searching this problem, I found a number of cases wherein the ICE LINK interfered with the electrical system in BMWs. Here is a long list of the symptoms which MAY appear:

* A/C not working. Button controls work, but compressor will not kick in.
* Radio no longer recognized my CD player nor will it display time
* Bluetooth ULF connects but is useless because all controls on the left side of the steering wheel are non operational.
* No turn signal light indicator lights up on dash, although they are working.
* Outside light in Automatic mode are always on. When the car is shut down they tunrn off instateneously as before there is about a 2 second delay.
* No instrument panel lighting.
* Wipers do not work.
* Turning alarm on/off do not the flashers blink but you still get a beep.
* Memory in the seats no longer acknowleges the doors is open. You must now maitanin the button depressed as if the door was closed.
* Outside Passenger side mirror does no turn down on reverse
* Sunroof does not work.
* Power windows do not respond to buttons on center console. To roll down windows, car must be stopped and windows rolled down via remote control in key. To roll up the windows it must be done via the driver's door lock.
* No high beam indicator though they work.
* No seatbelt or light on chime.
* Interior light do not turn off when the motor comes on. They have defaulted to the timer of when doors were closed.
* Interior lights do not come on when motor is shut down.

Here is another good thread on this issue....

Bumping an old thread to see if anyone has found a cure for this yet?


I started having the same issues. Now when I pull the radio fuses everything else works normally again. So its either I drive with no ac , turn signal indicators etc or drive with no radio.

In my post above, the issue was sourced to the Dennison ICE (ipod emulator) add on. I disconnected the ICE from its CD changer connector, e.g., returning to factory configuration, and everything was fine. The radio and single CD slot functioned as normal; just do not have the Ipod capability.

Probably not. But there is some connection between the symptoms and radio. Sorry I can't provide more assistance. gordo

2000 323i Sedan

I had the following electrical problem
- blinkers work outside, but not in dash
- hazards work outside, but not in dash
- high-beam light work, but indicator in dash does not work
- seat belt light does not turn off
- air conditioning does not work
- door/trunk open indicator on dash does not work

I did a cluster test02, and the cluster lights-up perfectly. I did the the ignition switch check by opening and closing the passenger vanity mirror with no difference in problem. I scanned the car with bmwscanner 1.4 and 4-5 different modules did not read.

I fixed the problem by disconnecting the negative battery terminal for 30 minutes. Connected it back, and started the car, problem is now gone. All dash indicators work and seat-belt light turns-off.

I hope this helps someone.

so i have similar problems. car was OK but missing stereo, I go to a car audio shop to put a new head unit, I drive back I see a/c, dash lights, convertible top not working (02 e46 ci).

shop says I set them up, not their fault

I remove the back plug from the new radio that they wired, everything works again.

so what do I do? set the audio shop in fire or maybe there is a catch with my car?

thanks!
