VZ SV6 2005
Hi All

Relatively new here, and have a odd question with regards to my VZ SV6 2005.

My hazard lights and every time I lock or unlock the car, only the drivers side indicators / lights work.

Indicators all work on both sides. For some reason, when I use the hazards or lock/unlock only the drivers side lights work. Any help will be much appreciated.

Not sure if related to this issue, but my electronic antenna also does not work.

Please help:)

Sounds like your BCM (Body Control Module) is playing up.

Great, Thanks for getting back to me. This would have nothing to do with a fuse or relay by any chance? And if so, would you know what particular fuse or relay might be worthwhile changing around and where it is located (under steering wheel / or under the bonnet in engine) ? Just to see if I don't have to replace the entire BCM.

Thanks again

When my VZ started doing weird and stupid things, not unlike yours, it turned out to be the BCM.
There is a fuse panel inside the dash on the RH side of the steering column and there is also a relay and fuse box in the engine bay, near the battery.
I would expect if a fuse has blown then whatever it supplies power to will not work, period.

Fuse #7 could be your culprit

Looked at that under the steering wheel area - seemed to be fine but did change and still no luck.

Weird - all the indicators work and the signals do not get stuck. Any other thoughts apart from a possible faulty BCM?

Mate, probe fuse 7 with a test light or multimeter and confirm you have power on the top of each side of the fuse when its in place,

*** UPDATE ***

Took the relay to a car audio tech, he replaced the relay inside the BCM (relay inside the BCM on the VZ SV6) $120 for Labour and $25 for the relay of EBay - and all works fine now. Thanks for info and tips. Really appreciate it.
