2004 Porsche 996 Turbo

For those worried about this being dangerous as it 'only gives three flashes' or whatever, bear in mind that this mod can only increase the number of flashes, not decrease them. If you just knocked the stalk down to get a single flash before you will now get three, if you turned your indicators on fully before they will operate as normal.

At serious danger of over thinking this, what does it do if you hold your stalk on for for 2 flashes? On one of my cars it would give three flashes if you moved the stalk to give a single flash, but if you held it there for two flashes it would only give two.

I think it was the Touareg I had where you could connect through the diagnostics software and edit the number of flashes. I wonder if they did that after pressure from a forum to keep everybody happy?

Agree with the above. This is just another facility. It doesn't start or stop people having dangerous habits, you still need to use indicators correctly. By all means don't use them if you think you'll use them in a dangerous way.

Just fitted this and very happy with the functionality
It is an individual choice, of course, but in my opinion it is one of the very few useful features of the many that modern car manufacturers bombard us with these days.

One point to reiterate if you do it and use the 6speed online guide, the hazard warning switch fits either way up, one way works, the other doesn't and curiously the correct way is when the pin numbers don't match!!

Reviving an old thread here but it was something I wanted to fit to my 986 so have written up a 'How To' on the link below if anyone else is interested in adding this feature from when I finally got round to it last weekend.

There are three kinds of people in the world; those that can count and those that can't... Confused

Have this on a Tiguan, had the settings changed in the comfort part of the ecu to flash 5 times, also have it on several other cars and use it All the time, no good for turning around corners or roundabouts but for lane changing it’s easier than knocking it on and then knocking it off ?

A bit like auto wipers, they’re useless until you drive a car without them and find yourself throwing your arm up and down like a fiddlers elbow ?
