    RHS indicator

    Hey guys,

    Hoping someone might be able to answer this while I'm still in town and might be able to grab what I need!

    My right hand side indicator keeps turning itself on, and when it does come on it doesn't blink on and off it just comes on and stays on, sometimes for half a second, sometimes up to 10 seconds and for no apparent reason, sometimes it'll come on 5 times in half an hour and sometimes I can drive all day without it happening.

    Does anyone have any thoughts as to what to do about it?

    Thanks

    Hmmm, gremlins like that can be tricky to find;

    Do you drive with your parkers or headlamps on?
    Do you have DRLs fitted?
    Do you have electric trailer brakes?
    Do you have other repeaters like on your roof rack etc

    Reason I ask is that only one side illuminating steady can be a fault in the indicator stalk, a high resistance path to earth thru the indicator from other circuits via things like a dirty trailer plug, aftermarket lights using the same earth (a bull bar or DRLs) etc
    Can't see it being the flasher relay, that is common to both sides, it has Bat +ve, Common and Earth not LHS/RHS

    Dolphins are so smart that within a few weeks of captivity, they can train people to stand on the very edge of the pool and throw them fish.
