Was the engineer who chose the turn indicator sound on the 2018 deaf or in love with the sound made by buses when they hit the turn indicator? It is so loud!
I am ready to stuff socks in the dash.
When I am on the phone when driving the person on the other end always asks what is that noise when i signal to turn.

I hear DFO and Bonds Outlet are having bulk sales on sport socks this weekend. :lol:

Seriously though, any 494 or 405 I have driven or ridden in I have never even noticed the turn signal clicking.

I'm with you RRToadHall. I can't recall any point in the past 4+ years of driving L494 that anyone even mentioned this as being a problem. My guess is OP's car has an issue and something might be broken ...

Mine don't seem to any more load than normal. My sprinter van is kind of loud.

You could always get a MB. They make you pay extra for turn signals so you could just get a vehicle from them. :)

Turn the music up and you won't hear them. Honestly never noticed.

Lol or drive with the windows down. It amazes me the amount of people who drive with their windows up when it is mid 70's - 80's around these parts.

I must just have got “lucky”with my 2018. I have owned a 2010 and 2014 RRS and they were nothing like the noise emanating out of this one. I notice on UK velar forums they have a similar issue with the noise.

It’s true. In my ‘18 they are louder than any of the previous 7 or so RRS models I’ve owned.

I had the same reaction as Railbasher when I first drove my 2018 RRS. It reminds me of the turn signal sound from the buses in grade school. It is somewhat annoying so I tend to use the soft push for a few blinks instead when appropriate.

In most cars, the noise comes from the turn signal relay. Maybe not true in these newer cars with loads of electrical junk, but I'd try to locate the relay and wrap it up. The signal in my 2014 RRS doesn't seem to be louder than normal.

Let's face it and look at a basic fact. There has not been a mechanical flasher in a Range Rover since Classics ended in 1995. There is nothing clicking under the dash or in any fuse box. It is a computer generated signal through a speaker to remind you that a blinker is on. You either find the location of the signal speaker that clicks for the flashers, beeps when you leave your key in the ignition, when a door is ajar, hatch is open etc.... and disconnect it or stick some foam padding over it if it is really that annoying. It would be much more safe to mufflle it's dramatic horror movie screams with a pillow than to miss out on important beeps warning you of overheat, low fuel or no oil pressure... etc.

I agree - people have even commented on how quiet it was, compared to other cars. I remember thinking that I liked how low it was on my 2006 and it's the same now.

I can add exactly the same experience. My first RRS (L320) had a smooth and very silent turn signal, especially compared to my other Cars like BMW and VW.
The RRS2 is still OK but not the same smooth turn signal as the former series.

I did not drive the facelift version, but regarding the feedback here, this is annoying.
Did somebody ask JLR direct about this? Think it’s easy for them to change this with an update...

I have the opposite problem my 2016 Sport is too quiet, I can’t hear the ticking above 50 MPH. I do have a hearing problem and use two hearing aids. My wife’s BMW X3 is great I have no problem with that.
In the past on other vehicles I have connected a small sounder across the relay coil. But on the discovery it’s a major job to find the relay, I can’t even find the direction indicator fuse.

On my RRS (AB, 2015) turn signal gets quieter (or silent at all?) when talking somebody on the phone (=handsfree, BT).
Maybe OP should try making phone calls in handsfree?

I have a 2018 and the turn signal click is VERY loud. I always have to stay muted on calls because its so loud when being used. There have been multiple threads about this in the past but no solution that I am aware of.

They want to make you think the relay for the turn signals is bigger than ever
