Apparently the one touch flashes either 3, 5 or 7 times, mine is set to 3 which isnt enough, but I dont know how to change it to 7 which I think would be better, maybe I need to read that manual rofl.


Its under car settings. On mine the only options are 1 click or 3! No 5 or 7!!! 5 would be the best i think...

Ditto! Maybe they estimate that we should be around that corner in 3 clicks. We are too slow! :lol:

The short click indicator is good for changing lanes on the motorway but doens't work for going round a roundabout, i end up putting it on about 4 times!

I'm fairly certain that the Corsa also has this indicator issue. But who in their right mind would buy a Corsa eh? -_-

It does - we test drove one on the same day as the Fiesta. Probably both manufacturers think of the short-burst indication facility more as an added "feature" than an issue, but the Corsa was doubly tricky in respect of the indicators because even when they're fully/properly on (rather than for a short burst), the indicator stalk still stays completely horizontal - whilst you knock it up and down to make the setting as normal, it's designed to send the command electronically and immediately recentre, so there's no physical feedback from just glancing at or feeling the position of the stalk. It seems minor, but we found that really offputting, and were very relieved that the Fiesta still leaves the stalk up for right hand indicating and down for left till it self-cancels or is cancelled. Technically we shouldn't need that reassurance when there's a signal light and ticking sound (as in all cars), but it's what we're used to!

Just out of interest what happens if you hold the indicator in place, so it keeps clicking but isn't set if you know what I mean, when you release it would it then do the 3 clicks and off?

Oh and on the Corsa indicators, that sounds like the same as the Astra we have as our work van and I've no problems with it resetting to the middle when they're set. But I do find it annoying when they don't click off and I cancel it and end up signalling the other way!

Its confusing enough on a motorway anyhow without checking to see if you are still indicating! And roundabouts, I normally go round and round anyhow cos I never know where I'm going. :ph34r:

You's all making me laff :lol: :lol: :lol:
