Today I have noticed my Driver's side front indicator is not working on my 2005 Peugeot 307 HDI 1.6 Diesel. (Reg Number BV05XEB)

I have gone and tried a new bulb, tried swapping the left and right indicator bulb holders, but to no avail.

When i activate the indicators on the right the green arrow blinks twice as fast as if to say there is a problem with them.

Upon inspection under the bonnet I noticed there seems to be a wire with 2 connections not connected to anything, unusually coming off of the wire bunch that leads to the headlight assembly.

I've attached some images of the loose wire and was wondering if this could be the problem, and where do I plug this back in to get the indicator working if so?

Thanks!

The wire isn't associated with the headlight, it's just a surplus plug.

The problem with the indicator is probably a bad connection. It's common. On mine, it would be ok for weeks, then all of a sudden, the indicator wouldn't be working. It took just a little bit of a wiggle to seat the bulb holder correctly, then it'd be fine.

Great at least that eliminates that wire - do you happen to know if there is a guide to getting into the wiring to check which connections are loose? I know I saw one somewhere about hard wiring the wires directly to the indicator bulb holder to stop thing like this happening in the future?

Thanks!

Is power getting to the bulb?

If yes, the problem is not the wiring - it's either:

- the connections on the screw in bulb holder. On the side of the holder there is a metal spring tab - this wears and loses connection until you wobble it around. Have a look at the bulb holder - does this spring tab look worn?

or;

- if you're happy with the bulb holders - and you have power - then it's the metal connections built into the headlight that are causing the problem.

Peugeots BSI shuts down power if bulbs blow so to get it working you probably just need to do a BSI reset.

We had this problem regularly with the expert taxis i ended up showing the drivers how to do it themselves it happened so often !
