Question Side Indicator issue

Hi guys,

I've got a bit of an issue I could really do with some advice on,

I had my car put in for service and the only issue found was one of my side indicators (on mirror) doesn't work,

I checked it myself and it functions when I lock the car but not when I indicate,

Is there a quick and easy way to fix this as in was told iI need a new indicator unit? :/

Also stupid question but would this fail the MOT as it was only advisory on the service sheet,

Sorry but I'm pretty sure it'll fail a MOT.

If it works when you lock/unlock but not when you indicate then I'd suspect its ok and the problem is elsewhere.

Although these are left and right specific the connector is probably the same so why not swap them over (just leave dangling) and see if the problem follows it.

It seems to have fixed itself 'touch wood' so im assuming the problem is probably just a loose connection, just a little annoyed Honda simply tried to get me to pay out 70 for a replacement :/

Pretty sure it was going to be an MOT issue if it should stop working again, I think I was being optimistic hoping it wouldn't be an issue lol
