Did you manage to sort this buddy?
Pull out the bulbs on the drivers side one at a time and see if it blows the fuse when operating them, see how it goes.
Right today... I decided to get a 15amp fuse tried it and volla! ONLY THE N/S works...
BUT the fuse didnt blow....
Now I am really stumped... Bulbs are ok... checked the wires from what I can see just cant find anything... All the other fuses are ok....
Did the hazards start working?
Seems to me theres a loose connection somewhere grounding out. You've driven your car today and its wobbled the wire again.
I'd wait till the weekend and have a look. Like with all electrical problems fixing it is the easy bit, finding the fault is the hardest part.
edit - did you have a look at the tall black flasher relay in the fuse box mate? Could have possibly wobbled it?
So did the flashers work fine with original bulbs, then you fitted the new bulbs and the fuse blew straight away?
sounds like exactly the same problem I had.
I fitted some new lights in my 318is coupe a couple of months ago and suffered random bulbs blowing, occasional light not working & fuses blowing literally every other day.
I had the electrics checked and they couldnt find a fault, oddly enough its never done it since.
Does any one have the location for all the Relays???
Got the haynes manual out and that just confused me with all the diagrams... I really do hate elecrics I hate it that much I cant spell the word...
It says there is different relays... Apprently that anoying clicking sound is the relay changing over... as there is no click to right and no flash from bulbs or on the dash. The other side is fine...
Hazzards work with a click and all the left side flash...
So... Thinking it is the relay... which ones are they?
There's only one flasher relay for the indicators, its the tall black one in the fusebox. I'll see if I can find a pic on the net..
The tall black one inbetween the green and orange one
AFAIK thats the only relay controlling the indicators.
