|German term or phrase: Signalblinker|
|In an article dealing with a model lorry, referring to some sort of lamps on the lorry; used several times. A specific example is:|
'Über zusätzliche Schalter an der Fernsteuerung können Abblendlicht, Fernlicht, Warnblinkanlage, Signalblinker auf der Fahrerkabine, Hupe und zusätzliche Ausgangskanäle geschaltet werden.'
It is clear that the author is not referring to the turn indicators, which he refers to as the 'L/R Blinker'.
My guess is that he's referring to the marker lights, but these don't blink (except maybe in Germany?).
(FYI, the only Google hits are for scuba diving and model railroads.)

Are you really sure that not the turn indicators are meant? There are all kinds of turn indicators on a lorry, not only front and rear. I have seen (and translated) some mounted on or at the side of the cabin, so maybe that is it?
Of course it is different, if this is a fire engine or similar special lorry.

|it's not turn indicators, on the cabin or otherwise, but your answer made me realise that many types of lorries (emergency vehicles and quasi-emergency vehicles, such as tow trucks) do have flashing lights on the cab.|
