Almost sure on that year of Corsa all models had two seperate relays for indicators . It was only after 03 onwards that it was a single relay

So where would these relays be? Under ther drivers wheel as that's the only place I could find relays, none under bonnet the relay I bought was from vaxhaull and that's all they recomended? Not 2 just 1 thanks for replying so fast :)

Thanks I will go out and now! Very much appreciated for your help, so do you think it's a relay? And the hazards run off same relays?

Might have gave you wrong advice .I think the relay under the bonnet at bulkhead was for a C series Corsa .Yours if a B series Corsa would be where you said near steering wheel .But found this , dont know if it applies to your year or not ,

" You have 2 relays for the indicators(1 for left side, 1 for right). Location is engine bay( No.2 box ). Relay No.15 for left, 16 for right. "

Further advice I've found

" No.2 box should be located on the n/s bulkhead next to the battery.The relays are the same size,to double check,turn on the o/s indicator or the hazards and feel/listen for the clicking. "
