    Mine had the exact same prob. Initially the dealer took it appart (the indicator stalk assembly) and had a fiddle, this caused the lever action to be very rough, and eventually the problem came back. It was eventually remedied by buying a new indicator unit including the stalk, havent looked back since.

    Yeah my Mi16's indicators are acting a little weird lately too. Teh blinker goes reall fast on the left when the brake pedal is engaged and fine if brake isn't enagged. Weird stuff.

    Dave employ the help of a family member or friend for this test.

    run the engine normally, and perform the normal tasks that cause the blinker to misbehave. See if the rear lights do weird stuff, like fading, half lit, reverse lamps blinking etc.
    Those things are surefire symptoms of faulty earthing around the taillamps. It would also cause the problems you mentioned.
