Why are both my indicators on my Hr Holden either not working or both flash together ??

I've replaced the old flasher unit thinking it was the cause but it's still doing it !!!!

The indicators either both go on or none at all I don't know what's wrong with it I can only imagine it's been wired in wrong ??

Often can be lack of earth but first check all bulbs are the correct single pin bulb and working, then remove one bulb at rear, insert a bare wire to the side of the bulb as you fit the bulb, then screw the other end of the wire to an earth point (any screw to metal)and see if this helps.
If no change do the same to other bulb at rear.
If no change do the same to front indicators.
If this works you can solder the wires to the outside of the bulb holders for permanence if you wish but the bulb will need to be in contact with the holder.
Hope this helps.

Bad earth on the front blinkers. It's a common problem..
Reach under the front through the wheel arch or crawl underneath and turn the blimker bulb socket back and forth a few times. If it gets better take them out and clean the contact areas up with some emery paper to improve the earth.
