    Hey guys,

    Wondering if someone could help me out with a problem or not a problem,

    I have a 95 VR Commodore BT1 and i was wondering how to get the indicators to flash when i un-lock my car and when i lock it. I'm not sure if its meant to do this but i have seen a couple others doing it.

    My locks lock fine and unlock but no indicators flashing,
    Have had a look under the fuse panel in the engine bay and noticed a relay saying horn alarm is missing not just the relay but the part the relay plugs into isn't there??

    Please help me :bang:

    well i have a 94 VR berlina, and my indicators flash... so i would suggest that they are supposed to do it...

    but also being a BT1 things may be a bit different

    I have made my VP park lights flash when the door are locked only. You can tap in to a wire from the central locking that gives a pulse, that is then sent to the wire that goes to the front and rear parkers. Using this method you carnt get the head lights to flash because it likes to blow fuses. You also carnt join both the un lock and lock wires together to the same point because it confuses itself. The wire i joined into was the Brown wire (VP) from the head light switch, and then to a wire out of the central locking module. The only reason i did this was because I has having trouble seeing if the doors were locking over the tint and it was even harder at night. Also on the Hazard switch on VP, it has 2 wires coming out of it, 1 for left and 1 for right. I has hoping for just one wire.

    Is your VR fitted with the factory alarm as well as the central locking?

    I think the blinkers flash only in this situation as mine do.

    blinkers are meant to flash regaurdless i would also like to know how to rectify the problem, my vs sedan came with factory central locking and blinks for lock and blinks for unlock.

    i recently done a conversion of factory central locking to my ute and it only blinks for lock but not unlock

    I had this happen to my car once, it turned out to be the fuse for the hazzard lights. So I would check that first.:thumbsup:

    might be a an undercover BT1 where the lights dont flash to keep it hidden...or more likely its the fuse...

    See if you're hazards work, if not it's the hazard light fuse. ;)

    Cars fitted with an alarm will do it, along with the beep, normally they don't do anything.

    MY Hazards Flash fine and every fuse seems to be in tack i even changed the ones to do with the central locking etc still nothing.

    I'm beginning to think its not meant to, Oh and i don't think i has an alarm as i haven't been able to make it go off and the Relay under the bonnet for Theft alarm is missing but not just the relay even the base where it fits onto the fuse panel is missing.

    So i guess its cos its a poxy model and even more so a BT1 no pack light flashes for me....well maybe time for an alarm even tho no one steals cars where i park live etc....

    Simple to check, although the more expensive the alarm the more areas are covered, mine does all dors, bonnet, Tailgate, all opening windows, and any electrical use, and if ya pop the bonnet quickly and cut the wires to the siren it goes off instantly (seperate internal / sealed battery source) and that imobilises the car permanently, well until the wiring is fixed and the alarm key is used to reset the alarm plus the std GM key.

    Just leave the bonnet ajar and open it after you have locked the car and waited 30 sec, depending on the brand about 30 sec later it should light up like a christmas tree, that or, or use the key in the door rather than the button to open the door after the alarm is set, same thing flashing lights everywhere, the button is the only thing that dissables the immobiliser, the key won't, once triggered they all will turn off after a minute or so but the imobiliser will remain locked, so the thief is screwed unless he has a quick lift.

    It has to be fitted with the GMH or aftermarket alarm, The VS my daughter has is fitted with an alarm, the siren can be turned on or off so it don't chirp on arming / dissarming.

    Not all commodores are so equipped, Christmas present perhaps ?
