929 turn signals U/S when cold ???

Discovered a new problem with my new soul mate (my 929 ). Now the winters drawing in in the UK I've discovered the turn signals don't work when it's cold !
Strange problem ?? If I press the switch there can be a 10 second delay to the indicators working if they come on at all. Obviously this could prove a little dangerous.
Any one else seen the same? I'm guessing the turn relay could be a bit past it? assuming they're mechanical relays and not solid state?

Mine was like that. I cleaned up the turn signal switch and it has greatly improved.

No. That probably would have cured it completely. I just gave it a huge blast of WD40. If I'd had brake cleaner I would have used that instead.

Does it have OE indicators or aftermarket?

In any case blasting the switchgear with WD and/or replacing the relay should sort it.

afaik OE indicators.

I am planning to replace all with LED so might be an ideal time to kill two birds with one stone I think.
