Post by melboy on Fri Mar 14, 2014 1:30 pm

the front indicators on bumper dont work but side and rear do but flashing faster than normal.
looked for earth connections but cant find them.
checked bulbs all ok and cleaned wire connecters behind.

my suggestion would be
get the multimeter out and check
that you have 12v at the connecters
at the lamps,if you dont have a meter
well worth having at not much cost
about £5 for a basic one
good luck ken

Test the live with the other probe conencted to something metal (I use the ignition barrel)

If the live is still only 5v I would test to see if your getting 12v at the switch on the indicator stalk. Maybe test at the relay too.

It does sound like a poor earth problem Mel. Going back to that troublesome blue relay if you stick your head back up under the dash again with the glovebox removed there are a couple of earth wires alongside the Central Locking Relay and the wires disappear through the headlight hole. Not sure if its the earth for the indicators as well but worth another look perhaps Mel.
Finally going on Monday to Dover to pick up the wheels now my leg is up to the drive. Around 340 miles round trip. silent Sad Sad
