A weird one: N/S indicators flash at double speed

Post by Mike E (uk) » Mon Jun 01, 2015 7:27 pm

The O/S are normal, and the dash indicators is also normal for either side.

All bulbs flash OK.

Only idea I have is the alarm is upsetting the flasher, but then wouldn't the dash indicator also go double speed?

Ideas please.

thanks,
Mike :?

Indicators going at double speed normally means one of the lamps is out.
Check the earthing of the lamps as high resistance can cause the same as a lamp being out.


You are not using any of the LED lamps are you? These do not suit indicators
