Late shape Xantia - flasher unit

Postby neilminto » Tue Nov 27, 2001 2:53 am

Can anyone tell me exactly how to get at the flasher (indicator) unit on a late-shape Xantia? I need to replace it with one that has a terminal for a towing warning lamp. I can hear it clicking (under column? behind fusebox?) but can't see how to get to it - any ideas please?

Hi - Why don't you use the type of relay for the towing road lights which has a wire for a bleeper, fitted in the boot. There're much easier to wire in, and the original flasher unit stays put.

I have the same type warning light on my Xantia, remove the lower trim panel and you can reach up behind the fuse box (on a 97 model at least), you will be able to identify the relay by feel as it clicks, I have my warning light in a blanked off switch to the right of the wheel and remember having to drill a small hole through the plastic behind it to feed the wire up from the relay, did you get the relay with the Citroen wiring kit, if so it's a cake walk connecting the rear lights.
Good luck
Dave

Thanks Dave - I will try this. Yes, I bought the Citroen kit - wildly overpriced and I believe Brink supply the same thing cheaper, but yes it makes wiring simple.

[Thanks for suggestion, but I hate the bleeper type!
