Indicators not working

Post by Scatcat1994 on Mon 18 Dec 2017, 9:56 pm

Hey guys,

When I click the indicators, they dont light up, either on the bulbs or on the dash.

The electrical thingie (relay?) is clicking. I think it sounds a little faster than it should be but hard to tell.

Cheers guys,

Indicators not working

I have just had a similar problem on mine, the flashers were only working when they felt like it and the unit was clicking spasmodically. I took the flasher can off which is under the right seat cowl and poured switch cleaner in it, dried it out and it now works every time, Don't know if it was the can itself or just the connections.

Try spraying wd40 into the left hand switchgear, and working them for a while left and right to help clear up the contacts. If that doesn't work try replacing the relay it's located where Pete said.
