    Hello

    I have a 1990 Hymer 564.

    The other day i noticed my internal directional indicator was not flashing when indicating left. On inspection it is only the rear nearside indicators (i have 2) that are not working. I have checked both bulbs and they look fine. The other lights are all fine. Is this a fuse issue and if so are the fuses readily available? Any help with this would be gratefully received. If it is a fuse, which one and where would I get one?

    Many thanks for reading and I look forward to any replies.

    Cheers!

    If it's Fiat based I think the fuses are in the glove box and the cover shows which fuse does what.

    check you are getting power to the light socket and check the bulbs with a volt meter just because they look good does not mean they are good check simple things first

    Thanks Eric and Ciderman. I have checked the fuse and it is fine, the fuse is for multiple things which all work, it is just the rear nearside indicator not working. I shall get new bulbs and see if that does the job. I will post back to let you know how i get on. Cheers.:Smile:

    Also be aware that there may be a multiway electrical connection located underneath the rear bumper (as on later models). These connectors are prone to pin corrosion due to water ingress.

    OK. Well i bought a Draper Pocket Analogue Multimeter, read the pamphlet and still have no idea how to use it! :Doh: Guess I need to use DCV but there are numbers from 2.5 to 500 and i don't know which one to set it to. Am now about to take the whole light housing out to see if I can see a loose earth wire. Hmmmmm.

    Select DCV 50. This will give a full scale deflection of the meter needle for a 50v dc input voltage.

    If the meter needle swings hard to the left, you will need to reverse your leads on the points you are monitoring.
