Hazard Lights

Recommended Posts

Hello

 

I am just in the process of completing a Robin Hood 2B that was given to me in a part finished state. I am progressing well and have just finished sorting the electrics. However, I have noticed that when I press the hazard switch the indicator warning lights don't flash. The indicator lights themselves work and the hazard switch lights up, I just don't know if the dashboard warning lights should flash. The indicator lights and the warning lights work correctly when using the indicator column switch.

 

It is based on a 88 Ford Sierra 2.0L OHC, can anybody help please?

 

Thanks

Graeme

Hi Graeme, as long as the indicators and hazard switch flash thats fine.

It's a different permanent live feed for hazards so your dash direction warning tell-tales must be wired to a part of the circuit ( hazard/indicator ) which is isolated by the hazard switch.

If you only have one indicator warning light then it often is wired between the indicator lights so that the high wattage lights on the non flashing side earth the dash warning light.

When the hazard lights are selected then both sides flash at once thus preventing the dash warning light working.

As long as the hazard warning light flashes then this is OK and like a lot of production cars befor CANbus fitment.

      The time has come to part with my Robin Hood 2B, Its been a great car and been upgraded loads since i got her, just time for something new now.
       
      The car has 0838 Miles on the clock, although the speedo cable was broken for a while (repaired now) so it’s more like 1200ish in total so incredibly low all the same.
       
      2002 Robin Hood 2B - Always garaged zero rust.
      Full side doors and wet weather gear.
      "Road Runner" has a smooth running 2.0 XE Red top Vauxhall engine with ZX6 bike carbs and Megajolt ignition (she’s fast around 175 BHP).
      Using a Type 9 gearbox with short shift
      Front double wishbone suspension uprated double spring rear (she handles very well)
      All round ford cosworth disc brakes drilled and grooved front discs (she stops well)
      Nice full size leather seats, custom dash using escort clocks
      Westfield silencer with multi branch manifold
      Fitted with a Thatcham 2 immobilizer
      The build quality is very good, not a show car but built safely and well. Fuel cost is about £20 per 100miles at motorway speeds.
       
      Looking for £5500.
       
      Call Alan 07956441132.
       
      P.S the wheels are all the same as the front ones, so not as in the picture. These were taken in May 14.
