Question BELOW FREEZING= NO turn signals

temperature dipped down to low 20* last couple of nights, in the mornings when i drive my truck, i have no turnsignals for atleast the first half hour of drive time? What would cause my signals to not flash or do anything, but they automatically just "unthaw" and their perfect?

That's a good one ya got there! hehe

I'm thinking relay, it's the only mechanical thing I could think of that would be affected (the little "arm" inside is having trouble moving up & down with the extra resistance the cold has on it - maybe?)

Or maybe a funky ground?

I'd change the relay and give all the connections a good looking-over.

Yea , under the dash is a relay that handles that . sounds like it is going bad . Cold weather always makes weak parts of the electrical system fail . The relay box is off to the right of the steering column . It is actually called the flasher relay .
