Hi guys and girls,

My AP5 is throwing a hissy fit and has some tail indicator issues. It only affects the indicators and not the brake / park lights.

Ive already gone through and replaced all the bulbs etc but thought Id bounce the idea of everyone here to get some further insight although Im thinking at this point it may be a short.

The tail indicators randomly switch between just the passenger side flashing or both flashing like hazards and they seem to have a sort of pulse effect to them almost like timing sort of.

They keep chop and changing back and forth between both types of flashing and Ive changed out all the bulbs checked for obvious shorts and maybe its just old fittings and sockets with some rust I cant see. Might be time to swap them out anyway.

And since Im here has anyone ever heard of some type of aftermarket housing for AP5 lights? Something like newer types of vehicles with the plastic surrounds and rear where the sockets enter like say Falcons or Holdens? Wishful thinking but hopeful lol

Thanks

It could possibly be the indicator switch, Check all your earths as in the earlier post to eliminate that. The reverse lights actually run through the indicator switch and could be shorting through, check all the reverse light wiring up to the coloum as well.
