2006 V10 104,000 towing or not, on occasion I activate the right turn signal and the left indicator on the dash flashes a couple of times then nothing for a few beats. Then the right side activates. Not every time, seemingly no common conditions. Could it be a flasher? Very confused by this behavior seemingly out of the blue.
Any thoughts?
Thanks as always!

Your indicator stalk and switch in the steering column need replacing.

Or you can try what I did and has worked for one or two others, get some electrical contact cleaning spray and give the switch a squirt.

This is a VERY DANGEROUS FAULT.

I was about to overtake someone and indicated to pull out unaware that I was signalling the opposite. The guy behind me took the opportunity he thought was being offered and got a BIG surprise when 2.5 tons of Colorado Red pulled out unexpectedly!

Luckily the road was wide enough for all three of us.

It was only a few miles later I realised WTF was going on!

So you need to be 110% certain by watching your mirror repeater that you are sending the indicator signal you want BEFORE manoeuvring!

Sorry for the late reply, was able to get contact cleaner in the switch and got the proper function back. Thanks again Nooby!
