Indicator warning lamp

Postby RussLCV » Sun Oct 16, 2016 12:27 pm

Hope some one can help

Been wiring my pick-up today and all is in and working connected up a front sidelight/indicator (only 1) and it flashers! Yippee however I have fitted stalks for all controls and they all work and 2 speed wipers, so I located the light green wire from the flasher unit and routed it to the sppeedo, but sadly it does not flasher? Do I need all 4 fitted to make it flash, I would have thought it would just illuminate without any lamps installed?

Hazzard warners work fine with 1 lamp fitted the pull switch flashes, once the unit is removed it that just illuminates, stays on

Many thanks any help welcome.

I have run a new warning lamp from the junction behind the dash but that also fails to illuminate, what do I need to do?

All other dash warning lamps work

I fitted a Mini speedo to go with the 3'7 diff. All I had to do was run a wire from the centre connection on the flasher unit to the speedo warning light and it worked fine, so you've got that bit right. Does the warning light come on when you use the indicators? you do need load on the system (bulbs installed) to make it actually flash.
