Softboot is an unknown quantity at this point
(Thread Starter)
Hi all, found this group and need help.
Here's my first bm,
http://www.softboot.co.uk/car.htm
Pulled up other night and all indicators went out,
fuse blew so replaced, then again, so discovered it only blew
indicating left. Now ok doesnt blow.
(However, before all this have removed phone and put in new right
full beam headlight. All wiring looks ok.)
Now have replaced relay in fusebox, still no luck.
Have disconnected towbar now reconnected as that didnt help.
To recap all left indicator lights dont work.
Relay totally silent.
Tried plugging in new stalk from breakers still no luck.

Turning right and alarm and hazards turn on right lights only,
all left are dead.
Any other hints and tips?
Any more relays about i should check?
Fuses?
Someone told me relay in fusebox for towing, is there another ?

Help or diagrams welcome. ghead

Secondly,
tips on fitting and buying, (suppliers etc in UK)
the clear lenses for indicators once all sorted.
All round look good?
thanks for the hellp in advance.

ATB
John

did you check bulbs in all those... maybe they somehow all got shorted out and burned up, although that shouldnt happen; thats what the fuses are for.

i dont know if indicators have anything to do with the Light Control module (LKM)...

good luck, and yes clears all around would look awesome.

Cheers for the help.

Yes checked all bulbs and all look ok.
I have a feeling I may of disturbed something when i fitted
new headlight, though it was opposite side, a wiring diagram I found
online looks like all wires seems to go thru this side. The indicators worked
since though screw may of worn thru weeks later.
Any more ideas?
meanwhile i'll take headlight back out
