Hello everyone, new to this forum lark so hope it works ok?... Just wondered if anyone is able to help? I have a mini Sidewalk, which had a dodgy front o/s indicator. Last week a few fuses blew and now I have no indicators! I've tried another relay flasher unit which got very hot and blew a fuse... I'm guessing I have a few electrical issues? Is anyone able to advise? Is there anyone / anyplace I can go to? Can someone give me ANY INDICATION? Here's hoping... Cheers!
Couple of basic questions - how much experience do you have with Mini electrics - total novice or a few years of "letting the smoke out" behind you ? Are you happy to wade in, or do you prefer to sit back and watch ?
It sounds initially like you have something shorting out in either the main indicator or the side repeater. Just because the front one was dodgy (just cruddy or broken ?) doesn't mean that is where the problem lies... Disconnect all six indicators at the first bullet connector back, and then reconnect them one at a time to see where the problem, is. Make sure you have stocked up on fuses, this can take a while !
