blinkin indicators who needs em.

Posted by robert_tuck at August 12. 2017

The Lads have been whinging that I don't always cancel the indicators on the 99, so I have fitted a bulb in the HL shell ,thought it a simple thing to wire it into the supply from the blinker unit to the HBar left/right switch, Nope ! all that did was give me an indicator bulb and scotched the indicators.probably just the extra impedance getting in the way? must be a simple thing,  or maybe that just me.

See wiring schematic on his site for correct hookup. Nice piece of kit I think. Otherwise a diode will need to be adde to your existing set up.

 

Copied from Pauls site:

 

INDICATOR WARNING LIGHT LED

 

The indicator warning LED gives a green light.

Mounting needs just one 12MM hole with holder, or 8MM without. With the holder it fits the warning light holes on later Lucas headlamps. The kit comes with everything needed + instructions, easy to install just 3 wires to connect

This can be used for conventional or LED indicators

12V negative earth only.

12V Pos earth O/Stock

nearly right the warning lamp should connect to the right hand and left hand output from the switch not the supply...

Goffys diagram is what I did (without the relay)  ,it sounds like I need to connect one side of the lamp to both indicators and the other side of the lamp to earth. Can't see that to work ,both indicators will come on together?, lets see----.

The led cannot feed enough current to light a normal bulb, I use an alarm siren under the seat as even the flashing light was not enough. Scares pedestrians about to step out as they think I am a reversing lorry.

Robert says he is using a bulb not a led that's another option but different

a 3w indicater bulb will light as one side is supplied with voltage and the other side is shorted by two 21w bulbs in parallel...

Sounds like black magic  , I'll let you know if it works for me, got to do a little prayer first to the mystical god Luca--------.

Nope, sadly did not work, managed to leave ignition on all night.  Does anyone know routine with sacrificial virgin, got to find one first.

I use this relay, its +ve earth and with 3 terminals one of which is for a warning lamp feed max 5W which then just needs an earth wire. I have a Commando so it already has a warning lamp in that wierd method of feeding it from both sides but I use this extra terminal to feed a 12V house alarm siren. Other benefit is its electronic so does not slow down with the alternator speed/output.

On John's recommendation I fitted one of these electronic flasher relays. Got to be 10X better than any bimetallic strip jobbie. Warning light, constant speed flash rate, fit and forget.
