Hazards keep blowing relays -fixed

Post by Stuntman on Thu Aug 28, 2014 2:29 pm

Hello guys

I have never tried to the hazards but when I do they keep blowing relays, and to be honest the comedy is wearing thin!

Is there a common problem with these?

Or where would the earth for these be?

Thanks guys

Didn't think there was a hazard relay, thought there is just an indicator relay.

True, my mistake. I was busy lobbing tools in the barn

Yep, every bulb, I've checked the connections for fraying but couldn't find any, I'm looking at removing the circuit from the loom by creating a separate bypass loom but I need to know the wiring circuit first.

Hj any knowledge of the loom?

Thanks in advance

Look at the hazard warning indicator lamp.

It is a very simple system.

The hazard switch itself is probably buggered. Stalks are prone to going a bit grim!

Well, after chopping out the entire lhs indicator wiring loom and replacing it, I now have operational indicators and hazards, what a complete ball ache

Did you find any faults whilst you were ripping it out?

Not physically, but I tested the wires by bypassing each indicator in turn, I think the main problem was with the rear lamp, I replaced the whole lot from the stalk to each lamp, I'm thinking possibly damaged wiring in the body to the rear lights.
