Hi y'all

Everytime I use my indicators it burns out the fuse under the dash. I've gone through three fuses now, they go straight after a couple of ticks from the indicator.

I'm useless with electrics, so could one of you kind souls give me a clue as to what's happening?

Thanks mucho in advance.

I think it's left side that it happens on. Car is '74 1300 T1.

Based on the wiring diagram (cheers for that) it is the hazard light fuse that is burning out.

Don't know what diagram you are looking at, but on a '74 the fuse to
the far right is for Indicators.

Anyway, if it's Left side only, look for shorted wires (Blk/Wh) at the
lamp holders or where they pass thru the body.
Another possibility is that the wires have been reversed (Blk/Wh swapped for Brw) at one of the plastic splices.
