The onboard computer is telling me that all the indicators on the rear o/s (indicator, foglamp, sidelight, break) are not working. Ive removed the pod and the bulbs are all intact with no faults. I have checked connections and they are okay. I am now at a loss as to what may be wrong. Can anybody help please?

Hi C3fjrbiker

I know its a bit obvious, but before removing any parts, did you walk round an visually check that all the lights work (even ones not indicated by the computer)?

You can also remove the indicator bulb from one side and swap it with the other side, to see if the problem moves or stays. This can help identify where the problem does/doesn't lay.

mentions that LED lamps can cause these problems too.

Hope that gives you a bit more to go on.
