Lights


Hi all
Perhaps a silly question, but are the side marker lights part of side lights or indicators?

Re: Lights


Actually, both!

Not sure what year you have, but certainly by 1978 the front amber side markers were part of the indicator system.

In normal "lights on" condition, the side markers are on. When the indicator is used, the side markers flash, but alternatively to the actual side light/indicator. (I'm led to believe that that is actually not legal in the UK, but....!)

The red rear markers stay on all the time with the lights. (They are also not strictly legal in Europe, as they should be amber....)

A few years ago I re-wired our front side markers. They now flash in unison with the indicator lamps, but no longer illuminate with the side lights. I was concerned that an amber light seen from the front may be confused with an indicator, with the possibility of someone pulling out on me at a junction etc, so had removed the bulbs many years ago. I'm much happier with the new arrangement. The rear red markers a re functioning as they should.

Hope that helps! Thumbs up
