Hi..there thnaks for your reply.


Ok..If you go under the drivers dashboard to gain access to the main fuse / relay board - there will or should be details of that in your owners manual if you need help to gain access. Or remove the storage tray door then the storage tray itself 4 black turn screws at each corner and remove the storage compartment - behind that is the fuse panel which you'll see ..up at the top right hand corner you should see a largish rectangular yellow coloured relay - that the flasher relay is double relay in one - so one side of the relay does drivers side of the car the other side of the relay does the passenger side indicators - you can opt for a new one - which any good local motors factors might be able to get for you or you can go through the dealer or the or cheapest option i would advise - would be to aquire one from a breakers yard any Astra G will have one and should be in the same place .just pull it out the old one and fit the new one in as above have look for that relay and maybe try replacing it and see if that helps..Its not to uncommon for these relays to that as you describe..I do hope this helps..If you need to ask anything else or include anything further then just continue before you rate
