Gen 4 Flashing Dashboard lights

Mon May 17, 2021 2:37 pm

Hi Guys

With the winter here, and, the need to switch on the headlights sooner, I noticed the dashboard lights (aircon console etc) flash on and off. The dash lights keep flickering on and off. Also, when engaging the brights at night, the first 2 "pulls" on the indicator does nothing.

Any ideas?

Hi you haven't said if engines running or stopped. Do the interior lights also flicker. I've included couple of schematics uses same principle from a gen 3. Looks like you have a loose connection earth or positive connection. Supply on these come from 40 A fusible link fuse box will indicate on lid. Hope you come right ImageImage

I had the same problem on my Gen 4, it only got worse. The issue on mine was the indicator stalk making a bad/intermittent connection. I tried removing the stalk and refitting but made little difference.

I then priced a new indicator stalk from the agents (R3k plus) but found one in a used spares shop in Pretoria for R850. Problem solved.

I hope this helps
