They do work with the engine off, but when running and brake light on they stop .

You have an earth leakage. Check the lighting circuit, (wiring) and make sure you have good earth at every point. Even though you have a connector screwed onto the frame doesn't mean it's ok. Remove and clean with fine sandpaper and see if that sorts it out.

Process of elimination..... scratch

Normal Townmate problem

Post  JohnW on Tue 28 Mar - 22:26

Indicators do go dim or stop working when stop light is on, problem is battery cant cope with both. As long as indicators work WITHOUT stop light on it will pass MoT. Engine should be running when tested. As 3hundredspartons says, a good earth connection is vital. A larger capacity battery would help but space is the problem unless you put it in a top box.
