Default Need some car help!

I have a peugeot 307, 2002 plate that is giving me some issues. I thought I'd ask the good people of heresy for some assistance.

Basically none of the offside indicators are a working at all. This is even if I put on the hazard warning lights. I thought it may be the front bulb holder as I have seen this could be the cause of many indicator problems, but I swapped the near side holder over to the offside with no change. I have checked all the bulbs with no faults with any indicator bulbs at all.

Any mechanics on here have any idea what it may be?

It sounds like the wiring to me. But I'm not a mechanic.

I'd check fuses and bulbs first before jumping into the wiring. But that's just my first instinct on trying to track down that kind of issue. Second one is to check to make sure everything is seated properly and connections are good.

As for the wiring you might want to look to see if you can find a wiring diagram, that might make it easier to chase down which wires you'd need to look at.

That or take it to a mechanic if bulbs, fuses or connections don't fix it.

I'm leaning towards it being an earth problem on that circuit. The bulbs have all checked OK. I have not checked the fuse but according to my research the hazard warning lights are all on the same circuit so should be working if one side is OK.

Well a quick check of the fuses later today and if no joy its off to a garage. People seem to get a bit annoyed if you don't indicate to turn right for some reason.

Well you could try hand and arm signals out the window, but not everyone knows those.

Always check the fuse first, but from your description it sounds like that may no be your issues. Always check out vehicle-specific forums for a general idea into the issue. Just take into account that this route is guess work and is not a proper diagnosis, and if you take it to a shop they wont care what the internet or friend's uncles' babysitter says is wrong with it.

If it comes down to wiring, if youre not experienced with such things then DONT MESS WITH IT. You can cause a hell of a lot more problems than you started with and Ive seen it a thousand times here at work. Wiring is one of those things its worth it to bite the bullet on, pay for a diag and repair at a reputable shop, and let them cover it if something goes wrong with their work.

I was thinking it was going to be wiring as there is nothing else left for me to check (fuse looks ok). As for me touching the wiring. Nope I wasn't going to do that at all.

I have checked a fair number of forums but nobody has reported a similar issue as far as I can tell.
