Emergency flashers have a mind of their own!
For several months now we have had problems with the emergency 4-way flashers that come on and flash one, two or three times before shutting off again. This now occurs more frequently, for example, on the way to the dealer (about 25kms.) it happened 11 times! Weather is not a factor. At first they claimed that it was because I installed a trailer wiring harness, however after removing it, the flashing has worsened. We have had the experience of sitting at a picnic table while camping and seeing the car activate the 4-ways! Now while sitting in the car with the ignition in the OFF position, the temperature gauge needle does a little shimmy with an accompanying clicking noise! My wife also had the experience of the high beams going on by themselves....
The dealer says that the "event" has to be replicated while the technician is looking at the car in order to do anything, so they're going to take the car for a couple of days and see what they can find.
Short of an exorcism, is there anything that I should know about?
