    Default Indicator Speed

    Are all Zs' indicators so sloooow??

    Mine stay on for, say, a bit less than 2 seconds, and go off for about half a second.

    It seems very slow... ricers adjust their indicators somehow to make them flash on and off really fast, so one would expect the mod to be cheap and quick.

    Is that the truth?

    Post Flashing!!

    Changing out the old style bi-metal (thermal) indicator can; found near the steering column; with an electronic one, will solve the problem. Cost from Supercheap is around $A30.

    Default indicator flasher timer pots

    I have to agree with "Dazza" If you have a speed problem with the indicators flasher pot swap it out for electronic. The first step is to look at your flasher pot so you are familiar with what it looks like. then either buy a new one from "supercheap" or see what the electronic one looks like, then off to the wreckers as most cars have the same item. BE AWARE you have to make sure the terminal alignment will fit your particular car as this is the diffrence from car to car most nissan cars will have the one you want, fitted into mid to late 80's. The advantage with electronic flasher pots they last forever, any change to the normal mode and or rate of flash may indicate a blown bulb or similar system fault not nessasarily a flasher pot failure.

    Good luck

    Steve
