Hi help needed.
I put my right blinker on it blinks 3 times then switchers to left side even though the blinker arm is still in the right position. If I push it hard to right again it starts blinking right again and stays to the right.
Any ideas, blinker can or what ever is used alike.
Help please mark

Just a thought, but I would be looking at the indicator stalk and its related components. I think a hardware problem is more likely than any electrical/software issue.

Best of luck.

Known issue which I've described on here and elsewhere several times for others after experiencing it myself.

You need a new steering column indicator switch or you can try what fixed mine: get a spray can of good electrical contact cleaner and give the existing switch a gentle squirt.

In the meantime ALWAYS check your door mirror indicators are showing the CORRECT turn signal BEFORE you commit to the turn.

Sounds like the switch to me. If you are mechanical enough, you can usually disassemble most of these switches, clean, and reassemble them. Or try nooby's shortcut, sometimes contact cleaner works too.

Good, glad it worked but do keep an eye on it signalling correctly for a bit to be on the safe side.

That fix worked for me for over 6 years and, as far as I know, is still working today!

OMG nooby!

Are you pondering what I am pondering?

In this case, Blinker Fluid did fix it!

Soooo, Goggle . . . and hey presto, Bob's your uncle and Fanny's your auntie . . .

Urban Dictionary: blinker fluid

In this case, we were able to substitute electrical contact cleaner...

But the real reason was obviously the OP had ran low on blinker fluid. We sprayed extra fluid into the switch and voilà, the blinkers work! :D
