    Having collected my 2013 Spider from the detailers to enjoy this weekend, I find that the turn indicators are no longer working. The hazard lights work. As do the other controls on the steering wheel.

    I thought it might be a fuse, but I can't figure out the appropriate one from the owners manual. Can anyone help with that, or have any other suggestions for a fix before I book it in to the dealer ?

    i thought the same but dealer told me the steering wheel must be straight and you have to tap hard on signal. That seems to work but i still find myself checking to see if it is on. Being that you have to look behind the steering wheel, not safe to say the least. Try it and report back. If that doesn't work please post update from your dealer

    Tocho was right. The switchplate in the steering wheel needs replacing. Just waiting to see how long it will take to source it. The dealer has seen this issue before.

    I am not sure how they could have made this so complicated that an intuitive owner couldn't just change a fuse. Does anyone else have insight on this? I have the exact same issue and would happily document everything about it to share with the community.

    After a routine battery change ( car was 3 years old so decided to change it before problems) my turn signal did not work upon arriving home. $1700 later the dealer replaced something. All in all $2600 to change a battery.

    I just put my hand out the window like old school, plus with all the distracted drivers no one sees turn signals
