Indicator Arm Connections
#1
I've had various indicator self-cancelling and no headlight flash issues which I've tried to repair using advice off of these forums.

I had the Dav unit out of my 52 plate 1.9 l Berlingo today, to replace the domed plastic plug at the end of the indicator arm.

I also notice that some of the leaf springs that touch the circuit board in the Dav unit had been bent. I tried to straighten them to the varying heights they need to be, but on reinstalling the Dav unit my lights are constantly on high beam and the flash flashes the left indicator!!

It's actually worse than before I tried to fix it  Big Grin !!

Has anyone got any idea what height each of the leaf springs should be so they touch where and when they should?

Are the leaf springs purchasable as a part?

Many thanks

Stuart

maybe the contacts are not supposed to touch anything till you do whatever it is you want ie turn or high beam pull stalk makes contact works

Thanks Tomcat3, yep I might have to resort to a postal repair.

I'm sure they cost the earth new, that's if I could find someone selling new ones!

That's definitely the case for the high beam / flash switch and maybe one of the others.

I've stripped it again and had another play!

I did have:
No flash
No self-cancelling indicators
Horn needed to be thumped to work!

I now have:
No flash
No high beam
Self-canceling on the left but not the right

But I have got:
A horn that works properly!

You win some you lose some.

I reckon a new indicator arm would be the cheapest fix, I've seen one that looks exactly the same but it has Auto written on the end, mine hasn't!

I wonder if it's still useable.

I ended up replacing the entire Comm2000 unit for £150, they wouldn't take mine in exchange as it had been opened!

All running great now, wallet a bit battered though!!

Glad to hear it's all working again. The replacement cost is a pain but at least you had a try at fixing it.
