Everything is normal, the voltage just is a bit lower at idle.

The warning light is supposed to glow dimly when everything is ok.

Even the 2$ flasher is fine, there is no need for the OEM flasher.

I agree with pappa. At idle the system is not charging, so you are just running at battery voltage. As the rpms increase so does the voltage up to ~14 V give or take 1/2 a volt.

As I recall, my headlight dash warning light glows dimly too, so your`s sounds normal.

I don`t know anything about the electrical difference between the OEM 3 prong flasher and the 2 prong replacement, but for the $78 difference in price I would have saved my money.

I don't think your emergency flashers will work with a 2 prong - please advise...

Signals Blink Slower

The reason the automobile flasher blinks slower is that it is designed for a heavier load of lights. The load heats up a medal reed that retracts when warmed, breaks the circuit, cools, then makes the circuit again, repeat until switched off.
