    I have a really weird problem with my VC.

    The indicators work fine while the car is stationary. But anything faster than 1 kmph and they will not work at all.

    My headlights are also very dim - could it be related?

    This problem is really puzzling me - anyone have any thoughts?

    What Whitevc said mate :)

    Make sure your fuses are all in correct " i found a fuse with 1mm off it connection once after a bump on the road, this was a flat fuse not a cylinder type. this would casue the lights to flicker or old dodgy wiring "Best to solnoid your joints then use elctrical tape, not just tape itself. "tape pulls its self apart after time, but quality counts"

    Make sure ur key isnt turned to far fwd on start up, i found mine if its 1mm to far fwd it cuts off most 12v items.

    Digital mulitmeter is always handy bro :)

    lol, i found with mine that the relay was loose in its socket, just check it as this may move just enuf to kill the indicators
