This is probably a simple problem, but I am a complete ignoramus when it\ncomes to electricity.\n\nI replaced my turn signal indicator with a different type, as the old\none (3 watt, 12 volt bulb) was contained in the speedometer that had to\ngo. The new one is a sealed unit, rated at .08 amp, 1.12 watt, 14 volt.\nThe salesman assured me that these are intended for 12 volt automotive\napplications.\n\nWhen I tried it out, the turn signals and the indicator clicked on and\nstayed on. No flashing. I thought maybe my battery was weak and hooked\nup my trickle charger. Then it gave two or three slow flashes and\nstopped (on) again.\n\nWhat's going on? Does my flasher unit not like this small change in its\nlittle world?
