    Default Last electrical issue I promise!!

    This is more of an annoying indicator problem. All bulbs are new along with the Corsa b stalk. When using the hazards the indicators flash at normal speed. When using the stalk in both directions they flash fast. I assumed it was my previous Corsa b stalk which Iíve had for years but replaced it today and itís still the same. I tidied up the side repeater earths a few weeks back as one didnít work at all so they are good.

    Any other ideas?

    Did you fit normal bulbs? LED bulbs for example can cause this

    All standard Halfords job bulbs. Still wouldn’t explain it working fine when the hazard is pressed.
    I fitted a diode to the hazard loom for theft prevention. Could that be an issue? But as again the hazards work tho.

    The one way diode thing wouldn't affect it I don't think. Weird. Do they speed up even more if you unplug one of the bulbs or stay the same rate?

    I'd replace the flasher relay.

    No change to speed with bulb missing. In terms of flasher unit, when I first tested the indicators the dash light stayed a solid green (didn’t tick). When I removed it, gave it a tap and a clean it then started working. Could be an issue I guess
