> Try the old process by elimination. First disconnect the power input
> lead to the turn signals. If it continues to blow it is probably the
> instrument voltage stabilizer. This is the one common item to fuel and
> temp gauges. If it does not blow then the problem is undoubtedly in
> the turn signals and probably a shorted wire. Remove the turn signal
> bulbs and check for shorts of the individual leads using an Ohm meter.
> There should not be a path to ground (earth) with the bulbs removed.
> Be certain that the indicator bulbs in the dash are also disconnected.
> These are sometimes in parallel with the front turn signals.

Thanks, Slats, that's very helpful. I'll let you know what I find out.
If the lights dim, you know I made a mistake...
