Beach Buggy Electrical Help / Another wiring issue
« on: January 16, 2020, 08:34:24 PM »
I have a rather annoying issue, with my new wiring in place the only problem I have is that the speedo Indicator bulb does not operate when the Indicators are operated, also the indicators don't function properly when the speedo bulb is in place, I am using the standard speedo, I have checked all of my wiring against several different wiring diagrams and all is correct, everything else on the speedo works correctly, I am using led lamps with a variable relay, which has been replaced, I have also tried a led speedo bulb, this does not light in any instance, any ideas, otherwise I will just take the easy option and remove the speedo bulb, cheers in advance
