The fault is in the breaker. Take off the steering columns lower cover and look for a blue cube. Take it out and prise its cover open. Now touch up all solder points with a soldergun. Should do the work. Otherwise (if you dont feel like soldering) just replace the breaker.
The junction box is part of the fuse panel. It sounds like you may have lost an earth somewhere. Otherwise check for a loose connection on the fuse box or damage to the loom. If you are not an expert it may be worth asking around for an auto electrician as wiring faults can be a pain.
Hi My sister had the same problem with her marea. It was a fuse gone in the panel below the steering wheel. Even if it looks ok check it with a multimeter or replace it with a known good one of the same amp rating.
Hi again If you have a multimeter then remove the relevant fuse and with the ignition switched on check you have a 12 volt supply from one fuse contact to a good earth point. If not then it will mean tracing back to where the 12V supply is going missing. I dont have a manual for my sisters marea so I cant tell you where to look unfortunately. If you have a 12V supply at one end of the fuse contact
instrument panel faults are common on the marea but ive never once heard of them causing any problems with the indicators or brake lights. if the panel is faulty you should still get the expected signals on the 2 wiring connectors behind the panel. at least do some tests before you assume the instrument panel is to blame. for example with both connectors disconnected the indicators and brake lights would work if the fault was the insturment panel.
Jug Now you have me worried..................as I have a new well from an E bay breaker instrument panel coming in the morning post Reading thru some the helpful threads on the BRAVOBRAVA forums Im sure I found one that said indicators and brake lights also failed with the instruments. On looking at the back of the IP it has at least 4 chips and my man tells me that one of these has failed I will post up the results of the new IP on Sunday after Iv fitted it. Fingers crossed. Ian
Hi Andrew and welcome to the forumD This is the first time I have heard of indicators that dont like the cold. ) If it is both sides and the hazards then I would check the flasher relay. This is attached to the stalk bracket. Should be 3 screws holding the trim under the steering wheel. Drop this off and check the relay.

Hi Im glad I found this thread I just nipped out to the shops and half way there I was turning left off a roundabout and my indicators stopped flashing - well the green arrow on the dash stayed on and the click noise stopped.... when I got home I checked and for both left and right turns the indicators come on but do not flash. All on so not a bulb problem. From this thread it sounds like it may be
Hi Thanks polecat - in fact I had a look under the steering column unscrewed the cover.... then decided I hadnt got time to look properly right then and needed a torch so screwed it back on... and the indicators work Ho hum... well if it does it again Ill know what the problem is -) dcmo
If i remember correctly the indicator relay is under the steering column lower cover.
The indicators on our car started to get a bit intermittent it was both from the stalk and the hazard switch so I guessed the relay. This thread in the archives confirmed it was in the column shroud (it sounded like it was there ) and after reading that looking at the relay cured it I unplugged it squirted some WD40 on the blades and shoved it back in. Problem solved so it looks like the relaysocket
I had the same problem but not for such a length of time i pulled the indicator relay under the steering wheel and tapped it on a hard surface a few times also i very slightly bent the connections in a fagg paper and it seems to have cured it - hope this helps. Joker
Sounds like the relay. It is on the same board as the indicator stalks. If you take the three screws out of the steering column cowling and drop it you may be able to see it. Not a lot of room though.
Sounds like a problem with the indicator relay (flasher unit) to me. Certainly isnt a fuse or the switch as power is still getting to the lights.
Many thanks for your advice
Very strange What happens if you turn the car off for a minute or so after the indicators have started to work do they then take another 30-45 minutes to come on or do they work immediately After they have started to work do they then work normally until you turn the car off
Do you have an aftermarket alarm andor immobiliser fitted The indicators staying on permanently on one side of the car is often caused by a sicking relay in these aftermarket units Dave.
The alternator may have got soaked in the flood but I dont see how you could get the indicator fault that way. Taking the bulbs out and drying the holders wouldnt hurt though. You could also try removing the flasher relay(underneath the column remove the bottom cover and its there. Clean the 3 mounting contacts and refit. It could also be a fault in the hazard warning switch. You could try operating
Hi I have same problem on my marea the flasher is in the steering columun three screws on bottom remove bottom cover it is there mine is blue but you will see it. I have to replace mine tomorrow so will let you know how much it is. Mine broke six months ago and I cleaned it with contact cleaner and it was good until today. Regards Carl
sorry cant help with indicators but the red light that looks like a spray could be the injector light

that light is the fuel injection system fault light called the engine management light on most other cars it means the ecu has identifed a fault and stored fault code(s). that could be very bad expensive news or it oculd be something very minor and easily fixed by yourself youll need to read the fault codes to determine that. buying a car that displays the fault light is always a risk fingers crossed
