Hi,
you can expect your indicators to flash too or stay on constantly (not flashing)

this is caused by water in your engine bay fuse box,
the little box beside the battery holds all of your relays, and when it gets wet inside it bridges all the connections making them run by themselves,

so either the lid is cracked and letting water in or the lid has fallen off, check it ou anyway luv,
maybe blow with a hairdryer to assist the evapouration of the moisture, not too hot though :D
