Right hand rear indicator flashing quickly

Post by peagles83 » Tue Sep 10, 2019 11:36 am

Hi,

I my wife's QQ seems to have an electrical gremlin somewhere. The right hand rear indicator bulb flashes quickly when braking. This also causes the Brake/Rear light to pulse at the same time. I initially thought it was the bulbs so I changed the brake light bulbs, that made no difference. I also swapped the bulb holder with the one on the left hand tail light to see if the issue would follow it but that made no difference. I suspect there is a bad earth on the harness somewhere.

Can anyone help me source where the earth is? I managed to download the Workshop Manual for my car and it looks like it's on the B pillar (B33) somewhere? Surely it wouldn't be this far from the light? See image.

All sorted, cleaned up the earth points, no difference. Checked the connector for the lamp and it was corroded on the earth lead. Cleaned it up and all fine again 👍🏼
