Hey Guys,

I have a Vespa Sprint 150 S and the right US Signal indicator is not working. I replaced the light bulb and its still not lighting up. The left side is however working, can this still be a fuse problem or would it be a wire problem? If its a wire problem, how much do you think it will cost to get this replaced?

Thanks in advance

It's most likely a bad switch. Shouldn't cost much to replace.

Hello and welcome to MV!

What model year is your scooter.
"The right indicator is not working". The bulb lights but doesn't flash? Or doesn't light at all. The left lights and flashes I gather.

Either way, I would swap bulbs between left and right and tell us what happens then.
And the brake lights and running lights? They all work?

Cheers.

Often it's corrosion in the bulb holder. Give it a good clean.

Thanks for the replies,

It's a 2020 model, I will try swapping them this Friday. That's a great idea to swap, all the other lights are working. I have simply green so I will try cleaning the bulb holder. I noticed when I switch the indicator lights to the right side, it blinks a lot faster than on the left, and both left and right show on the dashboard are highlighted.

I also forgot to mention that I left the Vespa out in my backyard with all the elements for about a year and half with a just a cover over it. Looking at the condition, I don't see any rust (thankfully). My right indicator did have some dent to the pod plastic black part so it does seem like it was bumped before but a very small dent.

It links faster when one of the uls bulbs has lown blown, or in your case, disconnected somehow.

(Bloody Bs)

What is a uls? Is it easy to reconnect the wires or would I have to open the front part and glove compartment to access the wire.

If the rear right blinker is working, then all is OK except for the connection to the front right bulb. And I bet that's right in the bulb holder.
