    Default DS20 Flickers

    I have 21w bulbs fitted back and front and the flickers operate more as a flutter than a flicker. They are flicking way too fast, both sides. Should I perhaps try and lower the bulbs wattage, or does the flicker control unit require changing? If it does I assume in typical Citroen fashion it will be right under the harness requiring the dashboard to be removed.

    Any suggestions?

    Access to the flasher control pot/relay thing is by removing the speedo assembly (assuming you have a late speedo).

    Undo connnection of speedo feed cable in engine bay,
    Remove four Posidrive screws in the surround of the speedo binnacle,
    Gently pull binnacle back towards you.

    Flasher pot will be in amongst the cabling melee behind where the speedo binnacle was just sitting.

    Replacement is reverse of above.

    Thanks for the advice. I found the control unit amongst the wiring behind the console, as you suggested. I replaced it and things are back to normal.

    Not a problem. It is one of those locations that shows the Bureau de Bastarde were obviously on a flexi day when the designers sought their advice.

    "Ey do not knoooow where tu put ze indikatooor pot Gaston. Ey knoooow eet shoood be in ze left rearrr wheeeel harch, but ze BdB weel nott anssserrr dere teleeephone! War don we jest pooot eeet heeer near ze indikatooor storrrk?"
