Any news on my indicators please
Expert:  Gallagher99 replied 6 days ago.

Hi there and sorry for the delay I was offline for a while there

 

ok the front and rear Indicator system in the kuga is controlled by the BCMii (body control module)

this is the fuse box in the passengers footwell

they are powered from separate pins using an internal processor (there is no fuses etc )

the wing mirror indicators are controlled by the door modules (using a command from the bcmii) over the can bus network


so if both front and rear passengers side indicators are inop then I would suspect either a lock up of the BCMii or a possible short in the system

as if ie : one of the indicator bulbs short out it doesn’t blow fuses like older vehicles it just shuts the power output off inside the BCMii

in most cases the BCMii needs to have the codes cleared to reset the system

occasionally you can disconnect the battery for 5 mins to try reset the internal processor

Hi there thanks for replying

You will find it will need the BCMii reset to enable power to the bulbs again as I mentioned the processor shuts the power off when it sees an issue rather than blowing a fuse

If you need any further help or technical assistance going forward ie wiring assistance
please let me know and I will do my upmost to assist you
