hello , my sister owns a 1995 mk3 astra estate with a 1.4 8v engine , recently the bulb in the front indicator blew causing the other bulbs to flash faster . So she puts a new bulb in and everything is fine for about ten seconds . im clueless with electrics and wonder what would be the first place to check ???

all help appreciated :anyone_sign:

When you say they are ok for 10 seconds do you mean it then blows the bulb again ?
If it is ok indicator wise on one side then it isn't the relay, I would have a look for coroded connections on the bulbholder, esp earth.
