Hi there
My problem is when I turn left the indicator on the dash flashes and clicks quickly.Also the front indicator on the car does the same thing but the back one doesn't blink at all.
I tried changing the flash unit but this did not seem to help at all.

Any advice would be most welcomed.

Simon PS thats a 96 VS I have

The reason they're blinking quickly is to let you know that one of your globes is blown (because it'd be very difficult for you to realise this under normal circumstances and it should be replaced immediately).

Replace the globe at the back and it should fix the problem

The circuit uses some gadgetry that relies on resistance to regulate current and/or voltage, as far as I know. When one globe blows, the conditions change and the remaining bulbs will flash quicker. Lose two bulbs and see what happens lol.

As said, get your blown bulb replaced and all will be well :)
