Help! Blowing relay

Recommended Posts

Hi guys. 

 

For some reason my superspec has been blowing indicator relays like fun.

 

I have had a 30w one and that seemed to be ok but then today that also went pop.

 

I'm using the premier wiring loom without a hazard relay. Could that be the problem?

Never had a relay 'blow', when you say blew what exactly do you mean?

I had my indicator relay blow as well (it rattled when you shook it - I took it apart and a capacitor had broken off). However, I don't have a separate relay for the hazards either, so I don't think that will be the problem.

Possible you're just having bad luck with relays? Avoid the 'HiCargo' brand if you can - that was the one that blew for me and I had one of their alternators which died on me as well 🤨

Which side of the circuit is failing? 

No idea as im not aware when it does go but the left indicator has tripped a fuse so must be shorting out.

Does it seem to fail after turning right, left, indiscriminately? Could possibly 50/50 the fault finding there.

After a thorough go through it would look like maybe one of the plugs in the back of the hazard switch was a little loose and may have caught something. So to help I have coveres them all in shrink wrap to avoid it
