Hello folks. Continuing to struggle with an electrical prob.
Have MOT booked for tommorow so getting stressed......its been 3 long years without my beautiful S1wl on the road.

Problem started with no tail lights, indicators, headlights or horn.
lower 2 of the 4 15amp fuses were blown.
With Maz pointing me in the right direction, found two worn cable sleeves in LH switch gear that must have been shorting. one in headlamp, one in horn.
Fixed these and now everything works except indicators (no fuses blow) when everything is connected.
All bulbs and connections seem ok.
On flicking indicator switch you can hear the relay click, but only once in each switch direction.
The flasher relay has broken its mounting so is physically lose but otherwise well connected.
Any help would be much appreciated.
Rich

Thanks nutter, I was suspecting the relay.
Its fairly new and the fact that it clicked had thrown me off.
It only clicks once in either direction I ve never listened to it closely when working properly, Im supposing that it should click repeatedly.
Ill check the earth again :yup:
