indicators popping a fuse

#1 Post by widget » Sat Apr 11, 2015 6:54 pm

as the title says, the mk1 has started popping a fuse when the indicator is used...so before i start looking , and because i'll be under my van tomorrow removing the gearbox...i thought i'd ask here if there is a known weak point on the MK1 ?

Hello Widget,

I don't know of any weak points but the system is live up to the indicator switch at all times the ignition is on, so does it matter which direction you move the switch to?

haven't got that far yet...just , still got another 5hrs under the van .today, before i even think about the saloon. that was going to be my first line of investigation...does it just blow when ign on or only one side.
.bloody moderns..gotta drop the dive shafts and the gearbox just to change a clutch slave

Hello Widget,

if it blows when you switch the ignition on, then there are a few other circuits that may be causing it to blow?
