    Hi there,

    Firstly it's considered "shouting" to type in capitals so is best avoided. It's also very hard to read.

    Don't know about your first two problems but the indicator fault is a common one and can be fixed by replacing the relay in the dash. It's built in to the hazard light switch and is a nice easy swap.
