    Default Indicators

    How do these properly work, what I find is, turning left, as there soft touch indicators, I just press down and let go and they dont turn off till I straighten up again. etc.

    the right hand side 1, press it up and let go it indicates right 3 flashes (roughly) then goes off, even if you havent turned.

    press up and hold the right indicator for say 5/6 seconds it works exactly like the left hand side one and stays on indefinately until you turn right and then straighten up, then it goes off.

    are mine working ok, as I thought the idea of soft touch was you didnt need to press and hold them for them to stay on any length of time like my RHD one.

    lastly, I remember in a vectra advert when the C first came out in 2002, the ad said if you accidentally put your indicator on but kept going straight, the faster you went the louder the sound got so you could still hear it was on, mine doesnt do that, is this another feature dropped from the later C's??

    The indicators can be a law unto themselves, there is fine line between a gently press so that it flashed 2 -3 times and a full flash. There is a right turning on my way home and for every 10 attempts where I try and press it with the same pressure, 4 will partly flash and the 6 will go on a full flash.

    Its not annoying and I doubt whether it worth bothering about but we must do to have written this.

    I find mine ok. All you need to do is a gentle tap for a lane change i.e 3 seconds flash then off it goes. or a firm press for it to stay on until you turn Easy

    I've been in a new Focus and their indicators are better than the Vecs......you get the gentle push which give you 3 flashes just like the Vec, but if you push them harder thay actually click (like normal indicators do) so you know they are definately on and which direction you are going.
