    hi, when I turn on my side lights im getting the nearside light come on fine and the indicator light stays on constant on the offside. the cables to the back of the lights are correct so could this be an earthing problem? any help would be much appreciated.

    cheers

    You checked all the connections and bulbs in the back lights?
    Had any bulbs changed recently?
