defender indicator short?

Recommended Posts

just got back from picking up our new baby but I have a small problem, and my auto electric knowledge is poor:

when i put on my brakes, the fuel gauge goes off and the passenger side rear indicator (only) doesn't flash, but the brakelight does! i'm guessing i have a short somewhere but have no idea where to start looking, i've checked the connecting wires to the indicators and all seems ok...

it's a 110 300 tdi 1995

any ideas please? i need to go to work in the morning and would like to fix it before i set off :angry:

Bingo! you were spot on mate, had to go to an auto electrician, he found the earth in question and fitted another, cost me £20 :(

i'll play with it myself next time, (the electrics!) thing is though, auto electrics to me are like the inside of the space shuttle!

and to avoid another thread;

does anyone know if the light on a foglight switch has to be a certain colour? i was told it has to be labelled as the fog, and have a light to show on/off, but no idea if it has to be any colour...
