    Flash 3 times

    My "flash three times" lane change indicator works sometimes, and not others.
    There isn't a setting for that, that I know of? I wouldn't bother me if I didn't know I had it.
    But it irks me that it works sometimes, and not others.
    I should be happy that this is the least of my probs............

    I have noticed that the specific time you need to depress the stalk is important for the 3 flash lane change. Additionally, make sure that you push it all the way to the point just before the stalk engages the "full on" signal.

    Holding it in this position for too long will cause the 3 flash system not to work and the light will flash only once before you let go of the turn signal stalk.

    Push it to the point just before it engages full on, and then release.

    My works without issue, but took a little practice to get it to work every time.

    Now that he mentions it, I remember noticing the same thing on loaner DTSs I had. At the time, I thought that if I had to have 3 flash timing just right, I could just as easily hold it down for 3 flashes.
