Hi there,
during the drive my "emergency blinker" from time to time goes on and off uncontrollably, speedometer from time to time shows speed falsely. When I take a right turn (especially if it is a sharp turn) then problem almost always appears. Some mechanics say BSI is the problem, but these guys aren't sure at all...
Thank you for your help in advance!

What is an 'emergency blinker'?

Turning influences the COM2000 unit, see the 'switches under the steering wheel (COM2000) here, maybe worth a look.

If you want to diagnose this yourself, have plenty of time to learn lexia (info here) then get this (click here) lexia clone tool and spend hours getting to the bottom of it.

It could well be a poor electrical connection at the steering, but then again, it could be the BSI.

I wasn't sure was "emergency blinker" a right name for it but I meant the thing when all four blinkers are on.

Hazard warning lights.

It does sound like some affected or damaged wiring, its going to take a while to strip it down and sort it out. You may get help with lexia to test systems, but any intermittent fault is time consuming to diagnose.
