indicators and dash,lights,

in my xf my indicators died which i thinkk was due to the flasher,which costs like 28$ so i havent replaced it yet,but since then i now have no interior lights and the fuse seems fine.and the lights headlights,when you turn them ion only the parkers come on and after a little bit the driving lights come on ,or if you tap the relay near the battery the driving lights come on only after tapping the relay,should i only have to replace the relay.at this time i dont think that i ave any more probs with me car but when i do ill be back.

thanks for any helpat all

Re: indicators and dash,lights,

Have you installed a cd player? when i installed my cd player something was going wrong with the earth and it caused all the lights to stop working.. eg: parkers, headlights, dashlights, basically everything

Re: indicators and dash,lights,

the earth wire behind the cd player is crapy i reckon.. and because of this you have blown a fuse. in my case the fuse didn't look blown but was so replace the fuses!

Cheers,
Robert
