Turn Signal "Click"

On our last trip I noticed the turn signals stopped the audible "click" I have become accustomed to in the Alpine. The signals work fine, it's just the "click" is gone.

I am assuming this is an issue with the turn signal flasher and I just need to replace it. Since the coach is in storage currently, I thought I would ask others if they experienced the same thing and agree it's the flasher, or if there might be something else that provides the pleasant sound of the turn signal.

Also, if it is the flasher, and to save me a trip to my storage area first, does anyone have the brand and part number to use, and also know where it's located? I am assuming it's under the dash but haven't looked.

My coach never had an audible click from day one. I wish it did. But I never took the time to look into replacing the turn signal flasher, which should provide the click.

Old Forester and Jim A, I expressed a concern about turn signal sound and Dale G. gave me a good idea. See our discussion in the thread "On The Road Again".

I've purchased the buzzer but have not installed it yet.

I think it's just the flasher, and I don't need to wire a buzzer into it. It had a very noticeable "click" for the three years since I bought it until now.

Years ago, I replaced the inaudible turn signal flasher on my 96 Beaver Patriot with one that played "Love me tender". JC Whitney I think.

Thumbs up Audible Flasher!

Oldforester.

The best thing to do is to replace the flasher unit with a heavy duty flasher, this one will give you the audible flashing action you want.

You can pick one up at any automotive supply store and it's an easy exchange.

Good Luck.

Henry.

OK guys. Knock it off.
You're starting to demonstrate "Suspicious minds".

In most cases it is indeed the flasher that makes the CLICK

Most Truck Stops carry "Extra Loud" flashers. I recommend

Back to one of my original questions. I tried to find the flasher today, and couldn't find it under the dash behind the steering wheel, or behind the panel in front of the passenger seat, or in the generator compartment. I only looked for about 30 minutes, so I'm sure I can find it if I look long enough and chase the turn signal wires once I get the cover off the steering wheel.

To save me some time next time I go to the coach, can any of you tell me where your flasher is located on a coach reasonably near the '06 vintage?
