Series 3 Flasher unit

Hi,
Looking at the Haynes wiring diagram for my 1981 series 3 the flasher
unit should only have 2 wires connected to it. But looking at the flasher
unit installed it has 4 wires attached to it.

The new 2 pin flasher unit I bought won't work with the Dark green and light
green wires as stated in the manual.

Anyone any ideas of what the other 2 wires do 1 black and 1 brown......

Cheers
Adrian Ford

I took my old flasher unit to Halfords, found something identical ... with
full instructions included on the packet ...

ISTR that the four wire relay was for extra lighting, such as for the towbar
electrics or a rear worklamp etc.

could be for trailer electrics, but i doubt you'd wire a worklamp to a
flasher unit, except if you wanted a strobe-light work lamp! coud make for
some interesting camps.

LOL, I was also thinking of something else at the time I wrote it ...
Multi-tasking not my forte, it seems.

vehicle wiring products have a good selection of flasher units if you
wanted to look at them and try to find one that matches your old one.
