  • [Corsa C 2000-2006] Indicators flashing fast

    Got my MOT on monday and im away to a friends garage to sort a few things..

    just a quick one.. my right indicator is repeating very fast,

    all bulbs are working fine but repeating very fast, i presume its the relay and not bulbs ?

    I have bulbs but no relay/fuse

    i presume that is my problem ?

    Fast flashing is normally a blown bulb on that side. Maybe one bulb is about to blow? Change both indicator bulbs on the side that flashes fast

      Cheers mate, you are correct, even if one bulb goes they all flash fast, i think my uncle said it has to flash between 120/140 per minute for MOT so it would have failed,

      i replaced the front indicator bulb first and sure enough it was just the one, easy fix, thanks

        Also and other MOT related one -

        My uncle has a diagnostics but no way of testing emissions, im sure it will pass but ive stuck in some red-x a few weeks ago,

        may it be worth buying some things from halfords today i.e more red-x, injector cleaner... etc ?

        i really want it to pass first time as im taking it way out of town and will have to wait around..

          To halfords or not to halfords that is the question ?

          believe it or not the other car shop in town is even more expensive!

          im just trying to make sure it'll pass first time, ive checked and changed a few bulbs, pads are fine, fairly new tyres, brand new wipers, has been on diagnostics, both a portable snap on and a big one at a garage and all was fine,

          emissions is the only thing i can think of but the corsa is completely standard apart form a K&N which passed no bother last year and i only do around 3,000 miles a year if that.

          dumbass me booked in the car for tomorrow and its the end of next month its due not this month so i have time to give it more looking over but their is nothing else i can think of,

          ive seen the big MOT list and ive done most pre-checks..

          as i say only thing i can think of is buying some red-x and injector clenaner to make sure it passes the emissions ? or is their anything else i should look out for in Halfrauds ?

            If it passed last year with no problems you should be fine this time round. Give it a good blast at high revs on your way to the MOT to get it cleared out

                Stick some redex in and as said above give it a good kicking on way to the mot place

                  redex does nothing, your better fitting new plugs. and kicking its tits in.

                    I stuck in some Red-x once the throttle body had been cleaned out and it helped,

                    as i say ive got some stuff, the catalouge says increases fuel consumption by up to 40% if you use two bottles per year.

                    im not paying for it so ill see how it performs with my car, if at all.
