    Indicators flashing fast......

    My indicators on the N/S are flashing fast but the back one not at all,i took the light unit out but the bulb appears to be ok........
    The bulb housing for the indicator slot doesnt seem to have power getting to it...The warning panel on the dash shows an indicator fault.

    The car is a 2002 avant b6,help appreciated.

    They're obviously flashing fast to tell you one bulb is not working. Have you tried another bulb just in case? Or cleaned the connections where the bulb sits into the rear light PCB?

    The problem must lie in the PCB or the plug somewhere then I imagine.

    A few years ago I had a similar problem on an MG Metro, turned out to be a hairline crack on the PCB, which I soldered across and it worked fine after that.

    I'm sure you'll get to the bottom of it, but I have a spare PCB if it comes to that.

    No problem, I do have a nearside light unit. It has some scratches from memory, but I can't recall how severe. If it's of interest I can dig it out and look.
