Default Indicator stalk won't stay up

Hi,

My T16S with cruise control has a problem with the indicator switch. It won't stay up and the guy at the test station won't pass it.

Can anyone suggest an easy fix as I am finding difficulties in getting a replacement part.

Many thanks!

Hi Adam,
your guy must be a stickler - both mine have this issue and they have passed every year so far, with different MOT'ers - when I looked into it, it has to be 'audible' and 'flash' but I think it's a 'grey area' and open to interpretation regarding them staying on ('interpretation' must be an issue because the same MOT station failed me the previous year because of a crack in my number plate that clearly did not obscure the number, and another one passed a similar crack this year???).
I have a spare of the indicator stalk you refer to (and it DID 'stay' but I changed it because the writing was a bit faded only to discover the indicator wont stay on ) but getting it to you quickly is not an option for me at the moment... someone will have one near you maybe?

On the other hand - you could try this - scroll down for cutshaw's suggestion

Good luck

Not really...

Check the selector switch for presence, security, condition and operation.
Reason for rejection - A missing, insecure or faulty selector switch.

yep, I saw something similar when I was checking it last year but 'faulty' may mean indicator does not work as a result.... clearly the MOT centres are not sure (or maybe they are and mine are not 'with it' - thankfully, in this respect at least).

They don't have to reset do they? Citreon BXs' used to have a swtich on the edge of the dash that you had to manually turn off.
