CX RHS indicator comes on with headlights

Post by buxtonmarauder » 20 Dec 2019, 22:33

First post here, so treat me gently please 😁

1986 CX... Indicators work fine when headlights are not on.

When headlight switch is turned on then the RHS indicator illuminates (constantly, no flashing)..

Any suggestions for where I might start looking for a solution?

Thanks for any help

Almost certainly an earthing problem. Check the earthing points for both headlights.
