Have ordered a new switch.
When I tested the flasher signal, the fuse blowed after app 10-20 seconds.

Could that be because of the non functional headlight switch?
The car has the usual flasher/brake light/rear light in the same bulb.
Are you talking 4 way or turn signal? They use different flashers. Was the fuse rated high enough?
