Hello Vohungdung,

The switch light is connected to pin 58 for when the lights / interior lights are turned on. When pushing the swich the connection to pin 58 gets interrupted and pins 49a (L + R) get connected, so that the switch "flashes".

Pin 49a is coming from the flasher-relais and L / R are connected to the turn signals, so that the switch flashes simultaneusly with the turn signals.

So if the turn signals are working normally that means the relais is also ok, that leaves the switch as the only possible culprit.
