Rear indicatorsall flashing fast when foot on brake

Indicated right and steered right and indicators double fast clicking.

Indicating right and put foot on brake and all rear indicators double flashing really quick.

Any ideas?

Check the front indicator bulb.

If it is kaput it will make the rear one flash double quick.

That's the first quick check.

Looks like right rear indicator bulb is out. Will try changing it in the morning now. Hope its that simple.

Id say there was more to it than just a bulb gone, if they are all flashing once the brake is applied. Im guessing theres some terminals touching in the light unit - possibly initially blowing said bulb.

I expect you are right Mick.

That's why I said it was a first quick check.

Maybe EBA (Emergency Brake Assist) is activating as that forces harzard on rapid flash?

No idea if your van has them mind, nor no idea if its related. But maybe!

I go with Clive in saying it is an earthing fault, so once bulbs and their connections in the holder have been checked- sometimes the bulbs get a build up of muck between them and the holder which breaks the contact. If that dosn't cure the problem start looking at the connections between the lamp and the chassis.

Definitely an earthing fault, get someone to check and you will probably find your brake lights are also flashing dim/bright with the indicators.
