Applying Brakes affects turn signal indicator
This annoying issue has crept up in my 06 I-280 in the last couple of weeks. Whenever I hit the brakes the right hand indicator arrow on the cluster lights up a bit. I would say it lights up about 50% brightness as normal. Accompanied by this phantom illumination is a single turn signal "click" sound when the brakes are applied or released. It only illuminates right hand indicator, and I checked outside and when it is doing it the turn siginal itself is not affected.
If I am stopped waiting to turn right with the brakes pressed, the turn signal produces no noise at all and cycles between being half lit and fully lit. If i release the brakes is starts making noise again and drops the half lit stage but speeds up the blink rate dramatically.
One thing I did notice early on was that sometimes after using the right turn signal (or flipping it on/off a few times) the problem would cease to exist for a few seconds. It has since stopped doing that and this occurs 100% of the time. This made me suspect the turn signal switch. Anybody else have similar issues?
