Perhaps a dicky connection somewhere. Perhaps corrosion, even moisture in the connection plugs. Inspect all connections to your indicator lights. Also check for worn or damaged wires. Also Have a look inside the lenses of the lights to see if the the globes are corroded or have water ingress etc and causing shorts to other wiring within the lighting circuits.

You may also consider turn indicator lever to on to indicate truniong right, make sure the engine off. Have someone watch right indicator and literally grab the plugs/leads to the indicator globe and give them a shake to see if the fault goes away. If it doe stop intermitantly then it will help point you in the correct area.

Can someone help me with the fuse number for the right side front indicator as my 2008 sprinter, both rear view mirror indicator and front are not working.


Dont think this fault is a fuse to be honest but i would suspect a fault in the hazard control switch is more likely to be the fault ,have you checked the bulbs first ??

Some of th intermitent problems with lights can be traced to bad ground connection since flasher bulbs draw quite a bit of current. Some cars use the car bodywork as the ground connection. If the rear lamp flashes faster than normal when the front one does not you have a bad connection. Check the bulb holder and the ground connection.

"Failed RH Indicator"


Check your right hand indicator bulbs, front and rear.
Simply a case of changing a blown light bulb.

Turn indicator light flashes quickly. bulbs fine


The quick flash is a fault detection for a burnt out bulb. If bulb is good, check bulb socket. Inspect for corrosion. If needed, replace bulb socket. Check bulb socket connector. Check if fuse. Check emergency flashers ( most cars have a separate circuit).

FAILED FRONT RH INDICATOR


Simple, it just means that one of the right hand flasher bulbs, either back center or front, is burnt out. If all the bulbs are ok, there is probably still one not flashig because of faulty wiring or something in the same line like a switch malfunction or in newer technology, onboard computer malfunction. Being a jaguar, if the bulbs are all OK and you still got a problem, i'd suggest having it checked by the dealer.

Pull that bulb out and look closely at it, it'll probably have one of the filaments(Tungsten wires) broken and crossed over to the other one causing a short to power and/or the bottom of the bulb has had the 2 lead contacts melt together. In either case the bulb will need to be replaced. If this doesn't fix the problem please let me know so I can look into it further.

LT signal fault


It is very difficult to diagnose your problem without being in front of your vehicle. But I will let you in on a tip-This vehicle substitutes bulbs for inoperable bulbs i.e. if your brake light goes out the bulb monitoring system will substitute your tail lights in place of the inoperable brake light. It can be frustrating you are not very familiar with your vehicle because when the brake switch is depressed you will see lights on and still get the message on the heads up display. also it is very important that the bulb wattage is exact. any difference in resistance will trigger a inop bulb problem. Also I believe that the turn signal is a dual filament bulb-one for turn signal and the other for your running lights. hopefully I have been helpful
