Be sure that the filler bottle lid seals properly (expansion bottle) then check the thermostat, try replacing it.

if that is the correct fuse it is for the left side high beam headlight.
turn on your lights and check if the main beam is working both sides, if not try a new lamp and check lamp connector.

Something in one of the fuse boxes normally. Either inside the car or under the bonnet.

Could be various things. Can be the indicator stalk - the actual lever that you push down / pull up inside the car. Take cowling off check wire connector.
(Is it both ways it does this?)
OR, simply the bulb and/or the bulb holder? They get corroded. Whip the bulb out and see the bottom metal part of it. Is it manky / corroded. Is the seat where the bulb sits wet and have white residue?
It does sound like the switch is simply jumping out from the lever.
Ya know if you indicate, it clicks itself off as you straighten up your wheels? Try looking see if the switch between steering wheel and stalk is broken or conflicting / inhibited by foreign bodies? I'm more the under bonnet amateur stuff really, sorry.

first thing you need to do is. plug a scanner to it. read the codes
when light is flashing means there is a sevear missfire and needs to be fix asap. or you will damage the catalitic converter.
bad coils, internal engine problems (coolant leaking inside pistons) maybe one of this is your problem

I have just, yesterday, fixed mine with exactly that problem. Its likely to be the reverse switch / sensor. Stand in front of your car. (Jack it up if you can its easier to see). Look under the car, crawl under the bonnet. You will see the bottom of the radiator fan and all its black plastic casing etc and probably a fat coolant pipe/hose too/ There is all that metal casing isn't there? Out of the casing you will see there is a wire coming from a pluggy switchy type thing. That wire is a 2-pin connector that clips off. You should see, sticking out of the casing (metal gearboxy looking thing) a sesnor-looking part. This part has a long switch (ought to be with plastic connector housing) and also looks like a large nut. Best described as like a 22mm nut with electrical connector stuck out from it. That is the reverse switch and it can be removed by using I thing a 22mm spanner. You 'can' use a socket of you have the long ones because a normal socket albeit fits over, didnt allow the wrench to attach.
When you take the switch out you will notice its a metal cylindrical shaft with screw thread on the closest part and like a smooth ball-end.
There's no way of knowing by sight of its broken but they're about 10 pounds average new. I got one from a scrap dealer for a pound

Anyway, as mentioned, remove the wire and bridge the two prongs - if reverse light come on its that.
HOWEVER, I somehow got a loud "CRACK" and flash as I think the engine was idling.
