Indicator problem

Postby cococola » Sat Mar 16, 2019 8:14 am

My Traveller indicators flash quicker on the drivers side and at the same time the indicator stalk light will only flash once on that side.
Everything is working correctly on the passenger side, can anybody help me please? :?

In my experience this could be due to a poor earth for an indicator bulb holder, or a loose connection somewhere in the feed to a bulb (on the driver's side it is the green/white wires); or it could even be that a bulb is not seated correctly in the bulb holder; or maybe even a bulb itself is blown. Are both the front and rear bulbs flashing quickly, or only one of them?
Have you got a circuit tester? - this should help you determine whether current is getting through to the bulb(s) OK.

Check to make sure you have the correct wattage bulbs fitted?

Thanks so much for everyone's advice, the problem was poor contact to the o/s/r bulb holder as suggested by et_in_black so many thanks :thumbup:
